Novelist Richard Russo boycotts e-books

“The 62-year-old said Interventions, a collection of four volumes, is a “tribute to the printed book” and would not be made available online. The author, who won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002 with Empire Falls, said he wanted to encourage people to buy from local bookstores. “Readers can’t survive on e-books alone,” he told the Associated Press. “The rapid rise of e-books and online sales of printed books pose threats to bookstores, the book publishing industry and the rise of new authors,” he continued.”
