This is a somewhat interesting article that I just stumbled across.

The article begins with the scene of a book editor reading manuscripts (NOT PUBLISHED BOOKS) on a digital reader. It's not an indication of an embrace of published digital books but rather embracing a new workflow where instead of requiring authors to submit paper manuscripts (which means this is on the route down to publication if it ever gets there) they request authors to submit digital versions.
I don't know about book editors for popular fiction and nonfiction but in the academic world, we have for a long time been submitting electronic manuscripts to publishers and not paper manuscripts. And by long time, I mean LONG time. We submit in electronic format, journal articles for submission and review, and also book manuscripts for review. We rarely ever exchange actual papers.
Is this really that new for the non-academic publishing world? I can't imagine so since the academic publishing world tends to be a little slower in innovation than the non-academic publishing world--or at least I imagine so.
