Will public libraries be digital in the future?

The first completely bookless library opened their doors to the public in San Antonio, TX on 9/14/2013. It is the first public library in the United States that is entirely digital.

Libraries & Ebooks

Why are ebooks so expensive?

Book publishers and their hold on the industry are the reasons that ebooks cost so much. Roughly 70% of the retail price of an ebook goes to the publisher. Authors could charge 78% less for an ebook and still make the same money if they did not have to use the services of a publisher.
