This site will cover eBooks, digital reading devices, publishing technology, smartphone reading applications, digital self-publishing, and the rapidly evolving future of digital publishing.

As the digital reading increases over the next few years, publishers, authors, and readers need to reconcile these fears about the future. As we build the eBook Newser community, we hope to start a more productive conversation about the future of eBooks.
