DCL Ebook Report for July 2014

July 7, 2014

Read the Douglas County (Colo.) Libraries Ebook Report as a PDF file.

What interests me this month is that we have a book (Meredith Wild’s Hardline) that doesn’t seem to be available in any readily obtainable format to libraries. It’s part of a series (the Hacker series, number 3), and might be categorized as erotica.

For awhile, it seems it wasn’t even available through iTunes, although Wild’s website now advertises the ebook through most consumer channels.

On the other hand, it can be ordered from Amazon as a paperback.

It’s another curious data point in the shifting marketplace.

JAMES LARUE  (jlarue[at]jlarue.com) writes, speaks, and consults about the future of libraries.
