The Future of Publishing Houses

An article I recently read on TechCrunch, recently argued that as self publishing becomes increasingly easier, it may be better to create an ebook platform than writing a book!

As the number of books being written constantly increases, and the average number of books read by the average American stay constant (the article cites 17 books a year – putting me way behind the average), there is an essential mismatch of supply and demand, making it harder for journalists and authors to stick out. However, who may be profiting from the increased supply of books is eBook platforms hosting these books, which give a large crowd access to a wealth of information.

Here’s a cool infographic that further explores how eBooks are changing publishing.
