Getting Past “Good Enough” eBooks

“If you expect readers to pay $12.99 or more for an ebook, you must give them the same high-quality product they expect in the printed world.”

As with music and movies, the trick with converting to ebooks (and e-magazines, and e-newspapers) is not in developing the technology to read them, but in securing the rights for them (dealing with corporations and lawyers) and in getting the formatting just right (dealing with editors and designers used to the old way).
