What we gain and lose in the future of reading

Two and a half thoughts on Amazon's Matchbook | Publishing Innovation | Scoop.it


Amazon's announcement on Tuesday of its new Matchbook offer, allowing customers to buy discounted digital versions of print books they’d previously bought from the retailer, is far from the first attempt to bring bundling to publishing. As Peter Hudson, CEO of BitLit was quick to point out, his start-up has been offering something rather similar for a while now, and the impressive results Osprey imprint Angry Robot achieved with a trial administered in partnership with independent bookstores have already been documented here.

Adobe to Publish .Folio Tech Specs Under Free License in Q1 2014

Adobe to Publish .Folio Tech Specs Under Free License in Q1 2014 | Publishing Innovation | Scoop.it

Adobe has let it known that they will be coming up with the technical specifications of .folio format for e-magazines under free license sometime in Q1 2014. An inherent benefit of the .folio format is that it will allow newsstands to launch their own viewing apps for users to read digital magazines that have been built using Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite. This, Adobe claims will lead to greater acceptance of digital magazines published using Adobe DPS which has already seen three times the growth achieved in 2013 as it has been the year before it.
