Definitely an E Ticket
I don't need to understand technology to understand the allure of the e-reader. I use email, I have an iphone, ipod, imac, I'm lousy with i's. And though I've blogged about my general feelings about e-readers, I find that I need to find out more, because I'm not only a reader, I'm a writer and electronic readers and their partners in crime, electronic books are about to kill/save publishing, thus have a knock on effect, possibly, on my hoped for livelihood.
So I've been gathering some information on the ebook revolution which won't be televised so much as tweeted and occasionally post a Facebook update:
I *heart* Nathan (Bransford) rounds up the doings of 2010 as transitions in this post about the seismic changes that have taken place and are still to come.
Eric at Pimp My Novel reminds writers, gently, gently, that publishing is a business, and market forces rule.
And a nice, in depth piece from the Independent.
Let's get e-schooled together!
* I do also remember "It's a Small World". I cried over that, too.
