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):
