eBooks and Libraries

I wish I had received a phone call from a huge public library system like JA Konrath recently did from the Harris County Public Library. I live in Harris County (Greater Houston Area) and it is a huge library system.

Mr. Konrath is one of the foremost advocates of self-publishing, particular in the area of ebooks, and has a lot to say about subject from time to time on his blog.

Today he posted a guest post from two librarians from the Harris County Public Library with his comments. It is an interesting summary of the situation libraries face with the advent of ebooks and the solution Mr. Konrath suggests.

Well worth the read so click here to read this informative post on the possible future of ebooks in libraries and the opportunity for authors to sell directly to library systems.
