Back in the autumn Biteback published a series of books called “Why Vote…” covering the four main political parties. In January we added ‘Why Vote Green’ to the list. I’ve calculated sales up until the end of February, and these are the figures.
It’s a very good performance for the ‘Why Vote Green’ book as it’s only been on the shelves for a little over a month.
Interestingly, UKIP voters are the most eBook friendly, with 13% of the ‘Why Vote UKIP’ book being downloaded on the Kindle or via iBooks or the Nook. By way of contrast only 2% of the ‘Why Vote Green’ book are eBook sales. How ironic that the Greens kill more trees than their counterparts. However, Green purchasers are more likely to buy direct from the Biteback or Politicos websites than Amazon, so good for them!
I’ll update the figures again at the end of March.
You can buy each of the books at Biteback Publishing’s website or the whole series is available for £37.50 (normal price £50) HERE.

Greekonomics explores the history of the eurozone, lays bare the causes of the crisis and suggests a way out of the current mess. Read the introduction.
Reviews for Greekonomics:
"Shatteringly comprehensive." Dominic Lawson, Sunday Times
"An interesting and accessible polemic." The Guardian
"There is no doubt that Greekonomics is a good read. It has intellectual depth and insider perspective... There are even flashes of humour." The Independent
"She offers three persuasive, if reconcilable, conclusions unless Germay pays much more: that a Greek exit from the euro is too dangerous; that Green cannot repay its debts; and that a diet of perpetual austerity risks killing the patient." The Economist
"The future of the euro matters hugely to everyone in Europe, whether we are in or out of the single currency. I am delighted that Vicky Pryce has produced this book on the economic and political issue of the moment." Peter Mandelson
