Editor's Note: Navigating the New Frontier
I was somewhat surprised to learn, through our annual reader survey, that almost 50 percent of Book Business readers do not currently offer e-books. And, of those who do publish e-books, most offer e-books of 30 percent or less of their titles. With e-books still constituting just 1 percent or 2 percent of sales at most companies that offer e-books, I understand the concerns of those who are shying away from investments (in time or money) in e-books. I also understand the perspective of those who love print—I am one of those people.
