eBook With Eight (Count 'Em) Sales Up For Award

from the good-for-the-author,-bad-for-ebooks dept

The Frankfurt eBooks Awards have nominated an ebook that has sold a grand total of eight copies for the best ebook. Everyone involved is somewhat surprised. I'm sure it's a good book, but I think it shows how far ebooks have to go. If a book that sold only eight copies can even be considered, then it seems unlikely that ebooks are doing that well overall.

    Either they aren't doing well or piracy is truly rampant.
