image Check out Why e-books are getting hotter and hotter, a Huffington Post piece by Mark Coker, Smashwords publisher and TeleRead contributor.

I’d respectfully disagree with Mark on the issue of screen quality. It is better than before, but still isn’t as close to paper, in my opinion, as Mark apparently thinks—either E Ink or LCDs. Consider the E Ink contrast issue. Still, I believe Mark’s analysis as a whole is right on target. Useful ammo for e-book advocates!

Some of the other factors Mark mentions: “Proliferation of multiple-high-quality reading devices,” “Oprah Winfrey,” “Early adopters become new evangelists” and “Greater content selection.”

Your own thoughts on the “Why”?
