The first book fair with ebook closes the doors to electronic publishers

The electronic book was going to be the star of the Madrid Book Fair, one of the key events on the calendar of every literary fan. But in the end, only a couple of booths have introduced the electronic book in their booths, as Silicon News verified, and as confirmed by the organization of the fair shortly after. Thirty publishers or booksellers reported that they would carry electronic books although only “two or three” have done so. Although this is not what most worries those publishers who are dedicated solely and exclusively to the electronic book segment. Their complaint, more than about the low penetration of the ebook, is that they have not been allowed to participate in this edition of the fair. As they explain, the statutes of the Madrid Book Fair prevent those who do not also have paper texts from participating in the meeting. More information at Silicon News
