INTERVIEW: Seth Godin on Libraries, Literary Agents and the Future of Book Publishing as We Know It | Digital Book World | The Information Professional |

jeff Rivera:

"He is arguably one of the most successful bloggers and thought-leaders of our time."


Rivera: "A number of publishers have pulled the plug on library editions of eBooks. Do you think that is a wise business decision and if not, how do you see it being a win-win scenario?

Seth Godin: "How incredibly silly. Libraries are like the radio for books. Not a money-maker for all, but a great way to spread an idea. I don’t think you can find a single author who suffered any damage at all because too many people took his book out of the library.

Ebooks for libraries need to be tweaked, not killed."
