Int’l publishers eye e-book era

From the Korea Times:

Today’s publishing industry faces a new challenge as digital books are replacing conventional formats. To tackle this and extend their international partnerships, some 596 publishers from 21 countries are gathering at the Seoul International Book Fair at COEX in Samseong-dong, southern Seoul through Sunday.

For this year’s fair, France has been invited as the guest of honor and will display 1,800 French books from 100 publishers, and hold seminars and cultural events.

Alain Grund, president of Bureau International de l’Edition Francaise (BIEF) or the International Office of the French Edition, hails the occasion as the opportunity to prove the ever-growing interest among professionals in Korea for French publications and vice versa.

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."
