Who? Well, who do you think? That's right, the Stieg Larsson juggernaut continues. This past week Hillel Italie of The Associated Press reported that publisher Alfred A. Knopf had said the late Swedish author's blockbuster 'Millennium Trilogy' thrillers have sold more than 1 million copies in the e-book editions. "We are witnessing record-breaking sales for 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' in trade and mass market paperback as well as in audio, so it is not surprising that this trend is being mirrored with e-books," Knopf spokesman Paul Bogaards was reported as saying.
Amazon.com, the biggest player in the growing e-book market, also told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Larsson's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," the first book in the Millennium trilogy, is the all-time top seller on the e-book reading device the Kindle.
Bogaards also backed up a report earlier this week by Amazon that said the Internet retail giant was selling more e-books than hardcovers.
So, what do you think of the e-book (r)evolution? Will it mean the slow death of paper publishing? Or will it be a good thing, leading to more readers and reading overall - and existing alongside traditional print media? Do you like reading onscreen, or prefer 'real' books? Is it just the words and stories that matter, or does the tactile experience play a part too? Thoughts and comments welcome.
