One of the key problems with eBooks is platform dependence. Bob Livolsi saw the issues in the industry, and built a business around making eBooks more accessible. Learn from his experience. Bob Livolsi is founder and CEO of Books on Board, the largest independent e-book retailer. Livolsi started his business to solve a simple problem: where to find a good selection of eBooks online for purchase. Books on Board was the first retailer to offer books in the ePUB standard, an open format that allows readers to read (and move) their books wherever they want. Livolsi joins the eBook Summit roster to examine how consumer book consumption is changing, and what it means for publishers, buyers, and suppliers.
