A Question, In Anticipation

| No Comments

I'm anticipating that 2012 will be the year that publishers begin thinking of supplying reviewers with eBook versions of newly published titles - at least in the case of novels - rather than posting off expensive packages. [They may already be doing this in the case of adult fiction, but it is not my experience yet with children's books.]

The ACHUKA office is currently ipodless, Kindle-less, Kobo-less and any-other-kind-of-dedicated-eReader-less. I can see that this is not a situation that can prevail for very much longer, and certainly at this time of year (the annual decluttering of bookstacks) I do see the advantage of some titles (those overlong fantasies and vampire romances) existing in cloud form only.

So my question to publishers this morning is what kind of timeline are they working to and how soon should someone in my position get ready for the gradual transition from physical to digital reviewing?
