By contrast, I believe that, at least in the US, Macmillan and Simon & Schuster completely refuse eBooks to libraries.
Ummmm, I guess Penguin stuck with me a while back when I read a few articles about them, and also noticed that not one of the Penguin books on my Amazon wishlist is available through eborrowing (as well as that their titles never go down in price). I have not noticed that from any other publisher, but it could just be that they don't publish the type of books I like. I'll have to do some research, it seems.
So far, my taste seems to gravitate towards Penguin and HarperCollins titles, as well as smaller publishers.
I have no beef with HarperCollins, especially now that Amazon can lower their prices, but the Penguin titles remain untouched on my wishlist.
