The Morning Coffee – 13 November 2013

Libraries, textbooks, unpaid writers, and indie authors are  each the focus of a post in this morning's coffee. I especially enjoyed the retrospective post about the iPhone and 8 pundits who were convinced it would fail.

  • “E-Books in Libraries, 2013 Has Been a Year of Small Victories and Bigger Battles” (LJ INFOdocket)
  • E-Textbooks: Better? Cheaper? Obsolete(r)? (
  • Eight amazing quotes from experts who were sure the iPhone would flop (TUAW)
  • Pay writers or we'll pull ads, National Library tells arts website (SMH)
  • Why Agents Reject 96% of Author Submissions (The HuffPo)
  • Why do indie authors get a raw deal at writers' conferences? (Self-Publishing Advice)
  •  Raises $1M For A New Approach To Content Marketing (TechCrunch)

About Nate Hoffelder (10610 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."
