Revolution of the e-books
Mike Elgan of ComputerWorld lists six reasons e-books are about to reach an unprecedented high.
- the economy
- the environment (or green living)
- a publishing revolution (or self-publishing)
- the rise in aggressive e-book marketing
- a rise in books written for electronic reading
- and the decline of the newspaper industry
Elgan also mentions the Kindle/iPhone effect, where, finally, some readers are really catching on.
