eBookNet Hosts Online Library Forum This Week

eBookNet, a site offering news, reviews, and discussion forums for the e-book community (, will be hosting an online discussion on libraries, e-books, and the future during the week starting Tuesday, September 5. Library leaders and other interested parties are invited to discuss how electronic reading devices can be used in libraries now, despite the limitations of the current systems, and how e-books will fit into their plans for the future.

eBookNet will be giving away 10 Rocket eBooks each to the two libraries that propose, on the Online Events forum, the most compelling ideas/plans for using e-books in a library system. The site owners will also give away three Rocket eBooks to one event participant who will be chosen at random from all who post messages to the event.

eBookNet was launched in August 1998 by Glenn Sanders and business partner Alex Pigeon, and now claims more than 60,000 page views per week. In July 1999, Sanders and Pigeon sold the site to NuvoMedia, Inc., the creators of the Rocket eBook. The site continued to commit to a non-vendor-biased editorial policy, even when NuvoMedia was purchased by Gemstar International Group in January 2000.
