Ebooks win, and so does "plain writing"

Music I'm listening to: "Icing on the Cake" by Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy.

Ebook sales have now surpassed print book sales at Amazon--even after excluding free ebooks. It had to happen, folks, and anyone who's still thinking it will take a couple of years for ebooks to grab more than 20% of the market is in denial (ahem, nameless "analysts" in this CNN article).

And as a former college professor, I'm smiling at this little piece of news: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/19/plain-writing-act-to-take_n_864336.html. Long time comin'.

Hi!

It's interesting the way that e-books are flourishing. I, personally, still prefer books. I like to hold something tangible. I also enjoy that "new book smell" that I'll likely never get with an e-book. However, as e-books keep gaining popularity, the more I consider publishing one.

Thanks,
Savanna
