A few weeks ago, we mentioned that we’d reached out to two of our competitors — ebookfling and booklending — hoping to present something of a united front when approaching Amazon and publishers about ebooks and lending.
All of this, of course, is driven by our desire to spur innovation in the publishing industry as ebooks become more and more popular. First and foremost, the adoption of lending rights is progressing at a snail’s pace, at best, but even beyond lending there are a lot of opportunities for anyone willing to make some fairly obvious moves.
With all that in mind, we thought it would be nice to drop an update, just to let everyone know that we’re still working behind the scenes to create a dialogue. At this stage, we’ve drafted letters that we’ll be sending to Amazon and various publishing houses.
Meanwhile, we’ve been in contact with ebookfling’s George Burke, who shares many of our goals. He’s agreed to work together, to the extent that we can, so we’re excited to have the ebookfling team on board.
We’ll update with any new information, as we get it.
