Weekend read: Ebooks have changed nothing

I do love a Weekend Read that challenges conventional wisdom, and this post from Eric Nelson’s blog, How To Think Like Your Agent, does exactly that. He argues – in a fairly convincing manner – that the widespread adoption of ebooks has changed almost nothing about the publishing industry. I especially like his final sentence:

I like having another way to buy books, but that’s all it is: Another way to buy books.

It’s a relatively short post, and well worth reading this weekend.
