Sales for iPad Magazines Fall

John Koblin of WWD has a report today that iPad magazines from popular titles like GQ, Wired, Glamour, and Vanity Fair are hitting a rough patch. In November GQ posted its worst month since the iPad came out (selling only 11,000 times), Wired sold almost 10,000 times less than its debut month, Glamour’s iPad sales dropped 40 percent, and Vanity Fair sales dropped to 8,700, down from its average of about 10,500.

There is hope, however, as Koblin points out that the magazines might get a boost in sales from people getting gadgets for the holidays. Here’s hoping people will be nice, and not naughty to the mags.
