Leituras Digitais (29 de Maio a 4 de Junho)

Rubrica semanal de notícias e artigos relacionados com a edição de livros digitais.

  My concern is that literacy in our culture is at risk. Or at least a certain kind of literacy, one that is essential to the quality of society most of us believe in: reading and writing, critical thinking, incisive intelligence and verve grounded in civic discourse.
 The founder of Daunt Books is set to become Waterstone's new managing director. But can the self-effacing ex-investment banker save the struggling high street giant?
  There are no two ways about it: E-books are here to stay. Unless something as remarkable as Japan’s reversion to the sword occurs, digital books are the 21st century successor to print. And yet the e-book is fundamentally flawed. There are some aspects to print book culture that e-books can’t replicate (at least not easily) — yet.
  BookNet Canada was at Book Expo America last week. Noah and I were both in NYC to attend. I was mainly there to go to the IDPF Digital Book conference, but I managed to find some time to wander the floor as well. Here’s a roundup of interesting tech-related products and presentations I saw while I was there.
  The new EPUB revision is coming fast. Last Monday, Bill McCoy, Executive Director of the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) announced the release of the full EPUB 3 proposed specification. My guess is that when we look back on this event 10 years hence, we’ll recognize this as the moment EPUB began to revolutionize the world of information, and with it, the book industry.
