Grisham May Soon Be “E”

The Wall Street Journal reports that John Grisham is close to finalizing an agreement to make all 22 of his titles available in all e-book formats.

This represents a significant endorsement of the format, since Grisham’s literary agent says they decided to sit on the sidelines until eBooks became a “more mature marketplace.”

Getting real figures on that marketplace is impossible, as the article notes. However, the WSJ quotes Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of eBook publisher RosettaBooks, who estimates that the Kindle accounts for 2/3 of total consumer eBook sales (whatever that is!)
