Off the Shelf

Onto the Laptop - Libraries Try Digital Books -

I was just reading this New York Times article about libraries and the increase of e-book collections. Exciting stuff. Yes, there are some restrictions such as publishers that won‘t allow their books to be digitized. That won’t last for long. And the fact that e-books can’t be read on Kindle or iPhone’s. That too will change as the collections grow. Sony Reader and others can do it and will have an edge. Who wants to pay $10 for an Amazon book when you can download it for free at the library? How much does a Sony Reader cost? $199
