PBS NewsHour story on Ebooks

The PBS NewsHour (formerly McNeil Lehrer) did a story on July 16, 2009 about the book industry and digital publishing. Audio up now, or try and grab the late night TV broadcast if you are in the USA (and S Canada/N Mexico.)

Quote from PBS.org:

Paperless Prose
Amid the month of summer reading lists, Ray Suarez looks at the future of book publishing in the digital age.

Thanks for posting this. For some reason my TiVo regularly records the Newshour as a 'suggestion'. It recorded it last night and I just finished watching. Nothing particularly groundbreaking was covered for readers here, but it's good that ebooks and epublishing are getting this type of exposure.
