    This is basically a platform agnostic ebook model...libraries buy the content and users can place them on whatever device they want. It's in beta and they have 100,000 titles so far. Seems like the way to go to me!

The Book of MPub - 0 views

  • The Book of MPub curates research and critical thinking from students in the Master of Publishing program at Simon Fraser University. In doing so, it makes a contribution to a collective discourse on innovative technologies in publishing—epublishing, new business models, and crowd sourcing and social media. The Book of MPub furthers discussion in three formats: blog, ebook and the classic, ever-evocative print form. The experimental process is itself research, and both documentation of the insights gained and the final product are comprehensive resources for the publishing industry at large.
