Over the last week, the entire Good e-Reader staff was in New York for IDPF and Book Expo America. This is the first year our website was one of the major sponsors of the largest digital book event in the world and we talked to a number of major players in the industry. Today, we have a few audio interviews we did at the show where we spoke to Kobo and Overdrive about a myriad of issues.
This year was very light on news for Book Expo America. It seems now, more than ever, that companies are staging their own private events instead of using BEA as a platform to announce new products or services. Many of the startups in attendance did not have booths, but were pounding the floor, talking to the bigger companies. In this post show edition, I get into the major trends of the event and what we all took away.
