VERY good ebook article and discussion
This is the best article/discussion on ebooks that I've ever stumbled upon. Perhaps you are already aware of it? It's from the official website of Charles Stross. FANTASTIC read (both the article and the discussion posts):

(I was pretty sure I'd read that before... that article is about a year old now.)
It's a bit unfortunate that he doesn't have any hard numbers... so his assertions that depend on percentages and figures are a bit suspect... but overall, his observations on the market are pretty good.
He obviously doesn't think much of high-priced dedicated readers, which I can't argue with. But his insistence that people won't buy high-priced readers may be inaccurate, because I suspect we haven't yet seen the feature-set that will compel average people to buy one... the "iPod of readers."
