"E-books have changed the world of publishing in fundamental ways. The business
model that encouraged publishers to support the work of public libraries has
changed to such an extent that this relationship has been stressed to the point
of non cooperation."

As usual the big publishers are scared, and driving readers to their smaller
more nimble competitors. Business model changes are tough.

Share and enjoy,
