BEA Day One: Round Up

BEA formally kicks off tomorrow, but the pre-conference duals, ritual sacrifices to the gods of publishing, and self-flagellation started today with the IDPF conference and a Publisher's Launch event. I'm not there, obviously, but I am following the blog posts and I've collected the ones from the blogs I normally follow (and Teleread).

  •  BEA 2012: Self-Published Titles Topped 211,000 in 2011 (PW)
  • E-Book Adoption in U.S. Nearing 25%, India and Brazil Growing (Digital Book World)
  • GalleyCat’s Handy Guide to BEA (GalleyCat)
  • A Loner’s Guide to Book Expo America (BOOK RIOT)
  • Penguin’s Global View of the E-Book Market: DRM, International (Digital Book World)

And here's the coverage from TeleRead. Paul provided far more posts than anyone so I thought it a good idea to split the list in two.

  • IDPF – Emerging Models for Content Monetization – Ernie Sander (TeleRead)
  • IDPF – The Global Race for International Ebook Retail, Michael Tamblyn (TeleRead)
  • IDPF – How Consumers Discover Books Online, Otis Chandler (TeleRead)
  • IDPF – James Crawford, Engineering Director Google Play books (TeleRead)
  • Publerati ebook publisher of literary novels and short story collections launches at BEA (TeleRead)
  • IDPF – Paul Aiken – Authors Guild on the Justice Department settlement (TeleRead)

About Nate Hoffelder (11484 Articles)
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."
