BookExpo America is happening this week in New York and it will likely reveal where digital publishing is headed. This is a HUGE event. Last year almost 22,000 attended.
What will attendees see?
- New e-readers
- E-books in new forms–this could be a big one. Instead of reading the same book as you do in print, will readers pay more for added bonuses such as videos, interviews and interactivity?
- We will likely hear new research about the growth of digital media. We’re expecting to hear the latest data on e-book buying behaviors and preferences.
- We’ll find out the latest on the self-publishing trend as more authors go it alone.
