Year-End Dishing with the eBook Ninjas

Posted By Joanna Cabot On December 30, 2012 @ 2:55 pm In ebook,Interview | No Comments

[1]The nice gentlemen over at eBook Ninjas [2] invited me to appear as a guest on their year-end podcast [3], and since I was on vacation, I only caught the release just now.

Chris and the guys recap the top stories of each month, with commentary from yours truly. If I had to pick my favorite story of the year—the theme that kept coming up for me over and over again—it would be the rise of the non-American.

Amazon has Canadian and Japanese storefronts now! Kobo establishes a development team [5] in Dublin, Ireland! iBooks is number one in Brazil [6]! I foresee a year of growing maturity for the international e-book market, and as far as I’m concerned, it can’t come soon enough.

And the Ninjas? Well, they were more into the techie standards stuff than I was. About the only prediction we could all agree on was the inevitability of a Retina iPad Mini.
