Signing off for a while

It has been almost a month since I last posted here. It seems to me that things have slowed down in the world of publishing. Although the struggle between ebooks and print books continues, it is a long, drawn-out negotiation as to where the future lies. Reports from Book Expo this year are cheerful. Traditional publishing companies believe again that they have a future, despite the inroads of digital media. Librarians are adjusting to a mixed-media future with the co-existence of print and digital materials.

In a couple of weeks I'll be heading for the American Library Association annual conference in Anaheim. I'll be looking forward to seeing and talking with publishers at the exhibits and examining their new products. If I find new and exciting developments, I publish here and let you know what is going on.
