5th annual World Ebook Fair to start on 4 July

The World Ebook Fair kicks off next Sunday. So what?

Pardon me for being cynical, but this appears to be a non event. I can't find an ebookstore partner offering a sale, nor have I found anyone doing anything as part of the Fair. It's not like "Read an Ebook Week", where quite a few retailers, ebook blogs, and free ebook sites participated. This "Fair" does not seem to extend beyond the one site.

But I could be jumping to conclusions here. There are several important partners are listed on the site (Baen Books, PG, Internet Archive, etc). Unfortunately, none of the partners are promoting the Fair. I'm not sure what's going on, and from the looks of things neither does anyone else.

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."
