It was news ahoy at #abaconf11 this morning.*
Today in the eCommerce and eBooks: Options session it was announced that Collins Booksellers have signed an exclusive deal with Kobo to have eBook kiosks in their stores.
Thorpe-Bowker announced their new joint venture with TitlePage. TP will be doing a total revamp of the system to incorporate eBooks, excitingly entitled TitlePagePlus.
Now that eBooks are on the horizon - hurtling towards us as though in speedboats or dune buggies - perhaps the whole prospect won't appear so frightening anymore and we can just accept the eBook as simply another edition of the original.
*and no, it has nothing to do with bacon or fighter planes.
