Barefoot into Cyberspace: figures for August

Below are the figures for how many people read/bought Barefoot into Cyberspace in August. I’m providing them for people who are interested in the nuts and bolts of a book project undertaken outside of the world of mainstream publishing and with a Creative Commons element. I intend to provide these figures on a month-by-month basis.

html 3,619
pdf 2,337
ePub 520
Kindle 177

  • Print – POD are reported by Lightning Source, the print-on-demand partner for the book. My suspicion (and hope!) is that this figure lags behind actual print sales, but time will tell…
  • Kindle stats are provided by the Kindle direct publishing platform at
