Publishing Statistics

Gulf News reports that Bahrain publishes more books per capita than any other Arab country. Also, most of these are not on religion, as opposed to the rest of the Arab world, where it sometimes seems like religious works comprise an outright majority of what lines the bookshelves. The article doesn't go into it, but I expect the island nation's high literacy rate is obviously related to this production.
