Printed books are the ones most people think of when they think of books and publishing. They are what’s stocked in most common bricks-and-mortar retail bookstores, the “best-sellers” on online booksellers, and the volumes found in public lending libraries.

Ebooks and audiobooks are considered part of the trade book market – they are different formats of trade books. So, trade books are the books that the consumer is most likely to be reading in print or on their device — or listening to — on their commutes.

Some examples of trade books are:

romance novels
thrillers
biographies
cookbooks
history
children’s books
Printed books are, of course, available through online booksellers such as bn.com and amazon.com as well, but these retailers do also carry non-trade books, as well (“So What is Not A Trade Book,” below).
