A good article from the Irish Times about the importance of ebooks. What stood out to me, maybe because it was the last bit of the article, were the stats listed at the end Рespecially the bit about how once someone owns a kindle, they buy 4X as many books from Amazon as they did before. Considering Harper Collins expects 50% of their sales to come from ebooks within the next 18 months, and how much of the book business flows through Amazon and their hawking of their kindle, the importance of the anti-trust case becomes clearer. It could directly  affect where the power flows in the publishing industry and how the business will go forward.

From galleycat, Harper Voyager is accepting unagented manuscripts for a bit.

From Publisher’s Weekly, someone made a map for David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest.¬† I love the obsessiveness of it. and I know I’m not doing it justice so check it out and see it for yourself.
