NBCC President on Digital Galleys

jane.pngOur sibling blogger eBookNewser tackled one of publishing’s big questions in 2010 today, asking: Should publishers switch to digital galleys?

With digital catalog company like Edelweiss and the digital galley service NetGalley, it’s never been easier for publishers to scrap print review copies in favor of eBook review copies. The eBookNewser post features an interview with National Book Critics Circle President Jane Ciabattari.

Here’s an excerpt: “So far I have resisted electronic galleys, in part because I have a habit of writing notes to myself galleys, noting page numbers for quotations, dog earing pages with critical scenes. I suspect there will soon be a device that will allow me to download e-books in advance for review purposes and still manage to follow my usual process. But it’s not here yet!”
