Ebooks in libaries are doing better

September 28, 2015

There has been a lot of talk about how ebook use is no longer climbing, perhaps even sliding.

A recent New York Times article “The Plot Twist: E-Book Sales Slip and Print Is Far From Dead” was widely disseminated and print readers rejoiced.

Fortune Magazine disagrees. Their article says traditional publishers ebooks are slipping, partly because of publishers are maintaining high prices.  Self-published titles continue to grow.

A  recent blog posting by the Goodereader says Libraries Report 2015 Has Been the Best Year Ever for e-Books .The problem continue to be libraries keeping up with the high price of ebooks for libraries compared to the price of ebooks for individuals and price of print books.

Since I buy the adult Overdrive books, I glad to hear the ebook use in libraries is still growing.  We know it is for Sno-Isle.
