Random House goes whole hog on ebooks

Filed under: News,Publishing technology,The Publishing Biz — editorialconsultant @ 1:05 pm

The publishing giant is going to digitize 6,000 books from its “backlist” (older books), bringing its total number of titles available in ebook format to 15,000. New titles will be available in both print and digital formats.

Random House apparently sees ebooks as a major market in the near future and wants to be positioned to take advantage.
