I came upon the following article thanks to a lead from The Digital Reader, one of the blogs I read regularly. The article is from paidContent; I think the article makes some interesting observations and raises some interesting questions. I encourage you to read the article and consider its implications for the future of books.

Why online book discovery is broken (and how to fix it)

  1. Interesting article. Not that I know what the solution is, especially if we don’t want to bombard the already overwhelmed reader. I was discovered — if you want to call it that — on Amazon, which was simply good luck on my part. Since then it’s been mainly word of mouth with some paid advertising. Without that first bit of serendipity, though, I have no doubt I wouldn’t be where I am now.
