E-Book Deals, etc.


It's Book Business Friday. Calm...we must stay calm...breathe in...breathe out. The battle in the e-book reader world is heating up. Apple, Amazon, publishers, authors, illustrators, readers--they all have competing interests in this developing literary medium. How much is a digital book worth? How does that influence the value of a hardcover or paperback book? How much will our royalties be? What will the book of the future contain beyond text? Read about it here. And here.

Have you considered getting an e-book reader? I wonder what e-books will do for the future of book selling? Cut out the middle-man maybe?

Either way, I'm excited. The internet is very cool.

Things are popping everywhere about e-books. Been to a Barnes and Noble lately? They hit you with their Nook as you walk through the door.
