Has the Time Come for eBooks?

from the thank-you-Mr.-King dept

With all the hype over the electronic release of the Stephen King novella, there are now people suggesting that the time has come for electronic books. I’m still not completely convinced. King was a success because he’s such a huge name. I still don’t think eBook authors will be that successful in the short run, and I still don’t see people wanting to read all their books on their computer. I certainly think there’s potential in the future, but I don’t think it will happen as quickly as some of these articles are predicting.
