This survey includes six of the top eBook venues. The number of books shown for each site is the total that site classifies as romance on their main “browse all romance” page. Venues are listed in order of numbers of books. Note: In many cases, figures will include eBooks that also have print editions. Breaking out electronic-only editions from the totals isn’t feasible.
