The morning session at thisyear’s Digital Book 2011, theInternational DigitalPublishing Forum’s annualconerence, held inconjunction with BookExpoAmerica, was highlighted byKobo v-p Michael Tamblyn’sannouncement o a new $130e-ink touchscreen readingdevice coming rom Kobo inJune. The audience at thepacked event was alsotreated to a smart and mildlycontentious discussion between the panelists on thepublishers’ round table—Dominique Raccah, EvanSchnittman, and RichardNash—as they surveyed theirown experiences grapplingwith the changes sweepingover an industry in transitionto digital delivery.But it should be no surprisethat the scope o the morningsessions included the growtho e-book sales; theprolieration o devices toread them; enhancede-books; apps; and theviability o placing advertisingin them both. Copyright in thedigital age, o course, and theparallel growth o sel-publishing and the relevanceo legacy book publishers inthis new era were alsodiscussed.Tamblyn’s announcemento Kobo’s new device—a blackand white e-ink touchscreenavailable at anunprecedented price point—was a vivid ollow-up to apresentation he madesurveying the recentexplosive growth o e-booksales in general and thestaying power o e-ink devicesin particular.The publishers round tableeatured a big publisher(Macmillan/Bloomsbury’sSchnittman); a midsizepublisher (Sourcebooks’Raccah); and a small indiepress (Cursor/RedLemonade’s Nash), oeringperspectives on the growth o digital delivery rom eachparticular viewpoint. Andwhile Raccah and Schnittmantended to agree—althoughnot on every issue—it shouldcome as no surprise thatNash generally disagreedwith them both. Raccah citedmarket shares or dierentkinds o print books (adulttrade, 42%; kids’ books, 25%)and said it seemed unlikelythat e-books could overtakethose igures; Schnittmanseemed to agree. Nashacknowledged that he didn’thave “the data,” but urged theaudience not to be swayed by“projections” aimed at avolatile, dynamic, and ast-changing e-book market thatis also characterized byalling prices. And whileRaccah and Schnittman bothoered pessimisticassessments on the uture o enhanced e-books (“We’veessentially created enhancedDVDs and we can’t sell them,”Schnittman said) and evenapps, Nash suggested thatenhanced e-books were moreabout preserving high pricepoints than adding value.But Raccah wasn’t havingit. “We didn’t do this to savepricing,” she said. “We did itto blow up the book as weknow it. It’s exciting, but westill haven’t ound a goodmechanism to do it. We’restill working on it.”

For him, it was the thirdday o a book show that ormany had not yet begun.His impressions o theevent so ar: “A deinitemood o optimism. Inrecent years, it waseveryone waiting or thenext shoe to drop. Thatstarted to change last year,with people concluding,‘You know, that was prettygood.’ This year they arecoming expecting to do business.”O the BEA itsel, he says,“We are past having toprove ourselves.” Rosatosays that he was thrilled tosee the IDPF panel“packed,” and though theconerence sessions onMonday got o to a slowstart (“people were out latelast night perhaps?” hequips), they were morecrowded toward the noonhour.Rosato was aware o thecomplaints about thescanning o badges at theentrance to panels andpress oice: “We areassuring people that wearen’t selling anyinormation. We just wantto know how the panels aredoing. Who’s coming? Is apanel or librarians ull o  booksellers? We need thiskind o eedback to keepimproving the show andthe show’s ocus.”
