Ken Auletta, author of Googled: The End of the World as We Know It, was a recent guest on the NPR program Fresh Air. He discussed how the rise in popularity of ereaders and ebooks is affecting book publishing and the book industry. He also discussed how ebooks are being marketed and priced, and what the rise of ebooks means not only for the future of book publishing, but also for the future of independent bookstores. While libraries are not mentioned specifically, this is an important trend for libraries to follow.
