RR Donnelley to print books for Penguin Group (USA) Inc

This isn't ebook news, but I thought somewhat interesting. Yesterday RR Donnelly announced that they would print books for Penguin. FYI, publishers rarely own the actual printing presses anymore. The actual making a physical book is often contracted out to a third party. From the press release:

R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company today announced an agreement with Penguin Group (USA) Inc. to provide the majority of its digital printing and binding requirements. Under the terms of the agreement RR Donnelley will produce Penguin Group (USA)’s digitally printed adult and young readers’ trade hardcover, trade paperback, mass market paperback books, bound galleys and advanced reader copies.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
