O'Reilly customers prefer .pdf
David Rothman at TeleRead is reporting that publisher Tim O’Reilly has found that "Based on a little less than 3 months of data, we see that of the customers who’ve bought Rough Cuts, 60% chose the PDF-only option; 36% chose the bundle of PDF plus print book, and only 4% chose to pre-order the print book only."
Sounds like the true value of electronic books is coming out first in technology and academic settings, where search and timliness are key qualities. We still haven't heard such numbers and popularity for novels, but with lower prices and better readers, I'm sure it's on the way.
