Best piece I’ve read yet on the impact of the iPad on book publishing:
Books in the age of the iPad from Craig Mod:
Print is dying.
Digital is surging.
Everyone is confused.
The whole publishing business is changing, and the kind of reading devices plays a major role in it. As Craig puts it:
IT’S NO WONDER WE LOVE OUR PRINTED BOOKS — we physically cradle them close to our heart. Unlike computer screens, the experience of reading on a Kindle or iPhone (or iPad, one can assume) mimics this familiar maternal embrace.
