E-books worm into reference book market

From EContentMag , "Back in 2000 when it looked as though the entire world's content would soon be digitized, a myth developed that in the not-too-distant future, paper books would be supplanted by electronic books (ebooks). In this scenario, we would all be carrying ebook readers, and the bookstore as we know it would become a thing of the past. That vision (thankfully) has not come to fruition, but ebooks are making a comeback in a different guise. Today's ebooks are more likely to be online reference books than the latest bestseller. In the reference model, users can search across a database of books and find answers to queries in a variety of sources, rather than reading the entire book."

Follow the link for the rest of the story.
