A hearty and sincere thank you goes out to the Virginia-based poet and journalist Beth Wellington this morning, for alerting us to a fantastic 44-page PowerPoint presentation that was originally prepared by Kelly Gallagher for a June 2012 Publishers Launch conference.
If you happen to have a bit of time to spare today, do yourself a favor and flip through this one; it’s embedded directly below.
And as something of an aside, e-book trend watchers might be interested in the prediction on page 27 of the report, which suggests that “Market forces … will make [both India and Brazil] ‘e’ power houses very soon.” Given Amazon’s very recent entree into the Subcontinent—and considering that this report was presented roughly three months ago—I’d say there’s a better-than-decent chance that Gallagher knows of what she speaks.
