One of the world's largest publishers says, "Ebooks are silly. " Book.
One of the world's biggest book publishers has described the e-book as "a foolish product" that will hardly grow. Hachette Livre CEO Arnaud Nourry commented on the Scroll.in in an extensive article about Hachette's prospects in India, which also affected online publication.
Nourry says the "plateau, or rather a small decline" that e-book selling in the US and UK has seen in recent years is "not the other way around". "It is the limits of the e-book size. eBooks are silly products. There' s no such thing as a creative approach, no improvement, no true electronic experience," says Nourry.
According to Nourry, this absence of creative ideas is in part due to a shortage of publishers' expertise in this area. "We as publishers have not done a good work to become digit. We didn't do very well," he said to Scroll.in. "I am confident that there is something we can create with our contents and features beyond e-books, but I have come to the realization that we don't really have the abilities and talent in our businesses, because publishers and writers are used to selecting a script and designing on a shallow page.
In the last two years, Hachette - currently the third biggest specialist publishing house in the word according to Publishers Weekly - has acquired three games vendors in order to attract talents from different sectors and "see how we can promote each other and how we can go beyond the e-book on digital".
The Publishers Association reports that e-book revenues in the UK declined in 2015 and 2016 from a peak in 2014. Thats was the year Hachette and Amazon came to shocks about e-book pricing when the publisher giants refuse to relinquish retail pricecons. As Nourry said to Scroll.in, after he had studied the "mistakes" of the audio and visual industry, he was confident that publishers had to keep full charge of the prizes.
