EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO), a prominent provider of book discovery services for libraries, has announced that Penguin Random House has put its entire 21,000-title ebook catalog onto the EBSCO eBooks™ service. According to EBSCO, “flexible pricing models will help librarians acquire popular frontlist and backlist e-book titles according to their needs and allow libraries to own purchased Penguin Random House eBooks in perpetuity.

Following my earlier post on the latest Mantano Ebook Reader upgrade, here’s one answer to the question I asked there: What’s going on at Mantano? Well, as you can see from the flash screen that the Mantano Ebook Reader pops up in its latest version, as of its next release, “Mantano Reader will become Bookari.” Right now, there’s no indication elsewhere what that means for my – and many others’ – favorite EPUB reading app. A search of the Mantano Desk, which currently seems to be Mantano’s preferred venue for latest news and updates, turns up nothing for Bookari. Ditto the main Mantano website. The announcement itself doesn’t have, or
Revenue dropped 5% at HarperCollins in the second quarter, compared to the same period last year. The publisher reported being hurt by lower e-book sales and a drop-off in the popularity of its Divergent series.

One favorite trick of futuristic science fiction is depicting some vast societal change without ever explaining how that change actually came about. A favorite example is Star Trek and the “death” of print.
Mantano Ebook Reader Free is my EPUB ebook reader of choice, and I know I’m not the only one. David Rothman and Juli Monroe are both fans as well. So I greeted a new upgrade via the Google Play Store last night with eager anticipation.
A huge question arises when we think about the prices of books vs. those of, say, subscription video services, movies, games, music and other entertainment. Just how much competition exists between media? In particular, how about books and social media like Facebook? And what about another area of competition, the time consumers spend on different media? The issues here aren’t just academic. One reason why publishers at Big Five Houses jacked up the price of e-books is that they assured themselves that consumers would shift the money to paper books. Long term, I myself fear a different outcome. People instead may simply spend less on books of all kinds—and more

If you read today’s new headline in UK book trade journal of record The Bookseller, you could be forgiven for thinking that Google had just launched a major new ebook initiative to overhaul Amazon in the digital book stakes.
Canadian book chain Indigo continues to buck the retail book trend and turn a profit. But anecdotally, as someone who lives impulse-distance to at least two Indigo stores, I have to wonder if that’s really about the books.
As Book Business’ year-end trendspotting survey indicated, direct-to-consumer marketing and bookselling will be top-of-mind for all segments of the publishing industry in 2016. It’s clear from these results, as well as the slew of newly-launched consumer-facing sites, apps, and newsletters that publishers are eager to learn how consumers find books, why they buy, and how …
