Before we officially move on to 2013, let’s review the year that was. Between the continued rise of ebooks, the Department of Justice investigation into alleged ebook price-fixing, the Random House-Penguin merger and so much else, there’s a lot to unpack here.
But before we do, a dilemma.
How do we list or rank the top stories of the year?
We could either look back at everything that’s happened and put together a piece that tries to string together a narrative around the year; or, we could admit that sometimes news events don’t fit into a bigger narrative and that life is messy and let you, the reader, decide what’s interesting.
We decided on the latter and so bring you the top ten most popular stories on Digital Book World in 2012 (in reverse order). Before you officially leave everything 2012 behind, take a minute to review the year that was.
