Digital Book World 2011

Publishers Weekly “ Russ Grandinetti, v-p of Kindle Content, offered a series of observations about the impact of digitizing on print and e-books sales.

And e-books can be read on them all. ”

MediaBistro ” Finally, during a morning statistical session, a Verso and Digital Book World study revealed a promising statistic about the future of independent bookstores: nearly 81 percent of eReader owners would ‘likely’ buy eBooks online from indie bookstores.  “
