I'd like to announce this year's industry research: which aims to find out the current position of the trade with regards to digital (and a few predictions).
This is the third year of this research where we ask the book trade what they think about: e-book pricing, digital content sales, piracy, platforms and devices and ask for market predictions for 2012, 2015 and 2020. We also aim to find out views on the future of high street bookshops, libraries, reading and learning.
Last year's survey had over 2500 responses globally, making it the most in-depth research into the trade on digital publishing issues.
I would appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey (should take 5-7 minutes). And if you can encourage your colleagues, followers and friends to do so, that would be great. If you provide your email address we'll send you the top-line survey finding and you'll get a chance to win 1 of 2 Kobo Touch e-readers.
A full market report 'Digital Census 2011' will be pulled together in time for our FutureBook 2011 conference.
