Over the past two decades, the publishing industry has seen disruptive changes. This change has been primarily driven by the evolution of digital books or eBooks as they are commonly called. From rocket eBook reader in 1998 to the ever-popular Amazon Kindle readers first launched in 2007, the dedicated reading devices have evolved tremendously. And so has the eBook standards from the OEB (Open eBook standard) to the current day ePUB3 and KF8.
While the eBook industry is steadily moving from ePUB2 standards to ePUB3 and from Mobi to KF8, for many publishers, digital publishing remains an alien planet. Many just wait for the technology to mature before investing, others remain confused about how they can take advantage of the rich opportunities that are available in digital publishing.
