More News from the Ebook Front

Get in line!

Link to item from December 9 Arts Briefly column in the New York Times, "Publishers Delay E-Book Releases".

Excerpt: Simon & Schuster announced plans on Wednesday to postpone by four months the e-book releases of 35 titles that are to come out in hardcover between January and April.

Reason given: Ebooks sales are cannabalizing hardcover sales. So, like paperbacks, ebooks must now wait their turn, it appears.
