Ebooks create many new readers!

In Len Edgerly's newest Kindle Chronicles podcast, he interviews several people in the tech/media industry, and ask  them about their relationship to ebooks.

One amazing thing that came out was that two people out of this small sample of sucessful and tech-savvy people said that before ebooks, they never read books! One of them actually got through medical school, but his girlfriend had to wake him up all the time because of his problem with books.

I think the deeper causes are mysterious as to why an ereader device will make avid readers out of people who never touched books, but it's a real phenomenon, and undeniably important.

I know!
If I saw her at a cafe, I wouldn't be able to leave until she did.
