The rise of the e-book

Late last year, I was asked to write an article on "The Rise of the e-Book" for Panlibus magazine. I readily accepted as I find e-books and e-readers very exciting and a whole new reading experience.

I did worry that in the time it takes a print publication to make it to the readers would be long enough that the rate of transformation in this technology could obsolete some of the things I wanted to say. Indeed, the past several months have included the introduction of Nook from Barnes and Noble and the iPad from Apple, two devices that bring major new features to this technology.

Still, I think much of what I said in the article, just published, remains valid. See what you think. It is on pages 4-5 of this month's Panlibus magazine which you can download from here:
