top selling ebooks of 2004 announced 01.12.2005, 8:14 PM
Though still tiny, the ebook industry has been growing steadily since everyone pronounced its stillbirth a few years back. But right now it pretty much tracks the print figures - a faint, crackling aura around the print goliath. Pretty predictable stuff. I say it's time for something new, for something born digital, to occur...
The Open eBook Forum (OeBF) announced the bestselling electronic titles of 2004 (press release) and reported double digit growth for the fledgling industry. Sci-fi, reference books, and the work of Dan Brown (who holds places 1 through 4) figure prominently on the top 30 list, along with a smattering of other print bestsellers. (yawn)
