The Guardian talks about ebooks

The Guardian has an ebook section in July 27, 2008 "paper". Here are the individual sections:

Wood block to ebook

Ebooks: The enthusiasts

What we're seeing is the creation of a new art form

Ebooks: The sceptics

It made me feel alienated from the books that I know well'

E-readers: A guide

These are from previous editions:

It's the screens, not the internet,
that are making us stupid


Books are thriving despite the internet

Faber launches print-on-demand classics

The rest of the links are from last year so I didn't include them.

Yes

In "E-readers: A guide" they do not mention the Cybook!

If you're buying a paper copy then the paper is called The Observer on Sundays.
