Thanks to Dear Author I read this great article at Publisher’s Weekly about e-book sales. They’re doing quite well, which is good because I like the industry a lot. Oprah’s endorsement of the Kindle helped a lot. With any luck I’ll have fewer people look at me like I’m crazy when I talk about e-books.
The iphone has surpassed the Razr as the best-selling phone and the BlackBerry as the best-selling smart phone. People like to use it as an e-book reader and more apps for it are coming out daily. This is great news as I’m hoping that this development will encourage Apple to create an e-book reader. Even if they don’t, all these apps for the most popular cell phone is, of course, great news for me and the digital publishing industry. Yay!!!
