    I am not entirely sure about eBooks, but I sure hoped for Audio books to take off. I don’t remember reading an entire book in the last 5-6 years. Audio books yes, many.

    When you have a 30 mins commute, it is easy to complete a book or two a week.

    True. With iPods and iPhones, one would expect them to take off big time.

    Krishnan,

    For several years now my publisher (for fiction) makes our ebooks available in many formats. Also they are a member of EPIC (www.epicauthors.com) an organisation which contains many small ebook publishers who have basically created the maturing ebook market. The major publishers have only recently realised the potential of ebooks and want their piece of the pie, but they are still stuck in their bricks and mortar costs/mentality and keep their prices high.

    Time will tell whether the discerning reader will prefer lesser known authors such as myself with ebooks at maximum $4.95 and no DRM or big name authors backed by Old publishing houses charging $10 (and upwards).

    Regards
