Want a Sony Reader? Join the editorial staff of a major publishing house. Random House is the latest publishing to join the ereading ranks with Hachette, Simone & Schuster, St. Martin’s. Each publishing house is providing eReaders to its editorial and sales staff to read galleys and other “preview material.”
I asked one insider about why the houses were all going Sony Reader and not Kindle and was given a response that in essence said that Publishers didn’t want pre published info or interoffice info on the Amazon servers. Makes sense to me.
So when will Penguin, the eternal foot dragger in the eWorld, and Harlequin, the leader in epublishing, join the ranks of the rest of the big publishing world?
