HarperCollins to Publish Three E.B. White Novels as eBooks

The publishing industry has long debated whether e-books expand the overall market or simply shift the market away from paper, for which sales have been flat at best over the past several years. One area that has seen growth in both categories: young adult/children’s books. Results from a 2012 Pew survey closely follow White’s ideal for the roles of print and digital: Nearly three-quarters of those surveyed favor e-books while traveling; around 80 percent use paper when reading with a child. Ellie Berger, president of Scholastic Trade, a leading children’s book publisher, said the two formats do complement each other and that ‘the combination of the two is greater than if we had print alone.’ (The Associated Press via hutchnews.com)
