Will Books Lose Out in a Tablet World?

Will Books Lose Out in a Tablet World? | Ebooks. O futuro já chegou? | Scoop.it

E-books have to be priced in a way that makes sense relative to its competition. They're not simply competing against other books anymore, they're competing against very very cheap (or free) forms of entertainment on the same device. Books and magazines aren't the only game in town for portable entertainment anymore.

AAP Reports US eBook Sales Up 46% in 2012, Now Well Over a Fifth of US Book Market | Ebooks. O futuro já chegou? | Scoop.it

The general book market was up 8.7% from $5.4 billion to $5.9 billion in the first 10 months of 2012, with only a few market segments reporting a decline (adult mass market paperbacks, adult & religious hardcovers and YA paperback). Children’s books in particular saw decent growth (18.7% overall), but ebooks continue to be the bright spot in the monthly report.

Why Kobo Should Implement QR Codes and WIFI to Build Digital Synergy with Indie Bookstores

Why Kobo Should Implement QR Codes and WIFI to Build Digital Synergy with Indie Bookstores | Ebooks. O futuro já chegou? | Scoop.it

Many bookstore chains in Canada and the US do not actively promote digital content in their stores. They bet on people coming in and spending more on the tangible versions of the books, but then customers end up buying the digital editions. Bookstores belonging to ABA or the UK Booksellers Association often get a cut out of each digital sale, but are doing little to gain that revenue other than pushing Kobo e-readers. Indie bookstores should be promoting digital discovery in their shops with QR codes and Kobo should be assisting them.
