eBook lending: Libraries go digital

CNN – “Board a bus or a train today and chances are you’ll see several people with eReaders in hand. While most probably bought their electronic books on a popular website, you may find a few who borrowed the paperless books from the library. EBooks accounted for 6.4% of all publishing in 2010, according to the American Association of Publishers, and 114 million electronic books were sold last year. While the majority of eBooks sold today are bought by individual readers, a growing number of the paperless books are winding up in public library catalogs.”
