From The Globe and Mail:
With online bookselling giant Amazon.com having halted sales of its Kindle e-reader in Canada and dismissive messages awaiting Canadians who attempt to shop at Google’s new online bookstore, it might seem that the Great White North is frozen out of the hottest trend of the shopping season.
But the truth is that Canadians are playing a big part – both as customers and players – in the e-book revolution that has upended sales of traditional books and is expected to vault past the $1-billion in sales it achieved in North America last year.
You can read the whole Globe and Mail article here. The Kobo success story is quite a fascinating story, and a Canadian success story on top of that.
