Thumbs up Randon House Australia finally joining the ebook party

Longsuffering Aussie ebookers note - You'll soon be able to get your hands on local Random House titles as ebooks. In fact the head honcho of RHA says "within weeks" whatever that means.

The wheels of the local ebook industry grind oh, so slowly, but they seem to be picking up some sort of pace ... urg. With the RHA agency question unanswered, it'll be interesting to see how they're priced. Extortionate, like Dymocks, perhaps?

If you want all the dry deets, hit my blog www.bookbee.com.au

This will be interesting. The Dymocks prices are certainly nothing short of extortion currently.

It would be nice to pick up previously GR restricted ebooks at reasonable prices but I am not holding my breath at this.

Can you believe those prices?? They are taking the piss, methinks - but you can't help but think they'll be squashed by new entries in the market.

I hope so, I truly do. They must collectively think we are idiots to pay exorbitant prices for ereaders and ebooks
