BEA 2010: eBookNewser Rides Again

As BookExpo America draws to a close, we rounded up eBookNewser’s recent coverage of the conference into a handy post.

The CEO of the online reading site Shanda Literature counted 43 million registered users in a presentation.

The Book Industry Study Group predicted ‘exponential growth’ in eBooks.

We visited Barnes & Noble’s PubIt! booth to find out more about the bookseller’s new publishing arm.

At a Google presentation, the search giant’s plans for cloud-based eBooks were still partly cloudy.

In the video embedded above, a Marvel executive said that on the company’s iPad app, “digital books are actually leading to physical purchases.”

Finally, agents and publishers debated about eBook royalties. After BEA, keep following all the publishing action on eBookNewser and our GalleyCat Twitter feed.
