How many books are published in Finland each year? Of which how many are children's books, and how many of them are translations of foreign books?

Are there any resources regarding these matters on the internet?

## Answer

In the year 2010 12 017 books were published in Finland. 2 432 of them were translations into Finnish and 112 into Swedish. In 2008 815 childrens books were published. At this moment it is not possible to have newer information about childrens books because of the updating the statistics of Suomen kustannusyhdistys (the Finnish Book Publishers Association):
