One of my favorite sites, The Casual Optimist, just posted an interview he did with Eric and I. I won’t go so far as to say it’s worth reading, but there are worse things you could do with the next 5 minutes.
Eric had some good things to say about the state of the industry: E-book detractors have of a strange idea of what most books are. Those beautiful dusty old encyclopedias, that rare first-edition of Ulysses, even your fancy new Vintage paperback? That is not most books. The Grisham and Grafton paperbacks at the airport, Chicken Soup for the Spirit, college textbooks — that’s most books. Does anyone really care if the next Janet Evanovich thriller has no corporeal form? Wouldn’t that be an improvement?.
