John Grisham Backlist Now Available in eBook Format

johngrisham23.jpgToday Random House announced that the complete John Grisham backlist–23 titles in all–will now be available in digital form. The books are available now, and the author has a new novel scheduled for October.

Last November, Grisham went on the record bashing $9.99 eBooks. He noted, in an interview: “If a new book is worth $9, we have seriously devalued that book…the future is very uncertain with books,”

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group CEO Sonny Mehta had this statement: “Grisham is one of the greatest storytellers of all time … Since the publication of his very first book, he has captivated readers with compelling characters, intricate plotting, and narratives about social justice that are impossible to put down. This is one of our most exciting e-book initiatives to date, and is certain to usher in a new generation of Grisham readers and e-book adopters.”
