I am an early adopter of the Amazon Kindle and bought my first one in 2008. A lifelong reader, increasing vision problems had made reading books extremely difficult. The Kindle not only made it possible to comfortably read again, but re-ignited my passion and my love for the activity.
2010 has been a critically important year for ebooks and the publishing industry. There have been many changes that have affected both writers and readers alike. The publishing industry is in the process of changing. Not all of these changes have been good ones and many of the discussions have been volatile, to say the least.
While it has become clear that ebooks are certainly not going away, there is still a lot of confusion about where the industry is going and how this affects publishers, writers and readers. Some are approaching ebooks with a sense of fear and loathing; others approach with a sense of awe and wonder. Some are undecided. How about you? Where do you stand?
