Almost everybody looks to be welcome the wave of E-book readers, and there have been a great many of those little devices at CES 2010. Book retailers on the other hand, are rather unhappy about the whole issue, and it seems that book retailers in France are particularly unhappy about it all, as the 5 major French bookstore chains are ganging up and trying to set up a “national e-book platform”, to try and stem the momentum of Amazon and Google. To achieve this, they’ve asked the government and publishers to help in this effort. To be honest, it’s hard to imagine publishers helping out the retailers, after all, retail chains have probably been bullying the publishers for quite some time now. Do you think that digital print will replace traditional paper books over time, or will they be able to coexist in the same world?
