Welcome to the weekend edition of the Good e-Reader Radio Show! Today, we talk in detail about all of the rumors surrounding Barnes and Noble. The company has seen great success with its price reduction in the UK and the US stocks surged on the news while Microsoft was offering one billion dollars for Nook Media. Also, Smashwords (the indie self-publishing darling) gave us some new data on ebook pricing, word count, and title info, so check it out. Finally, what does it take for 3M and Baker and Taylor to secure the rights for a big six publishing trial for ebooks in the library? I spent last week talking to the New York Public Library, 3M, Baker and Taylor, and others on what it takes to get from the idea stage to the physical roll-out. This is a great show if you want to know everything about ILS systems, digital library ebook lending, and more! Join in on the fun.
