Posted on April 26, 2010Over 130,000 people turned out for the annual L.A. Times Book Festival this weekend. Reuters was there asking questions about the iPad, Kindle and ebooks. Author Herman Wouk, 94, was one of the authors in attendance. Wouk talked about the digital wave changes the book industry. Wouk isn't comfortable with the ebook format but he still wants his new book, The Language God Talks, to be available in all formats.
Wouk told Reuters, "The craft of storytelling is eternal in its appeal to human nature. The forms change; the hunger for stories doesn't."
Mary Higgins Clark, 82, also talked to Reuters about ebooks at the book festival. She told Reuters, "I remember when they predicted that paperbacks would ruin the industry."
