E-books in New Zealand

I was going to do a round-up of stories about e-books and e-readers and add what I know about Martin Taylor’s “digital warehouse” which he is setting up for Copyright Licensing Ltd. (You don’t hear much about their involvement but it is their project. Disclosure: I am on the board of CLL as a NZ Society of Authors rep, which is why I know a bit about this whole area.)

But Philip Matthews has already done a vastly better job than I would have – he is a proper journalist and interviewed at least five people who know what they’re talking about. Let’s hear it for the MSM! – so here is the link, as I don’t think this article got any wider e-circulation than the Press website.

UPDATE: this review of the Kobo just in from MeBooks.
