    That is, flatly, not what Jobs said. He said that of the 5 major publishers who signed up, the iBookstore now accounts for 22% of sales. Jobs said nothing about the book industry as a whole. And that is a very significant number, if those publishers are seeing 22% of sales coming from the iBookstore already.
