Who's e-reading over your shoulder?

January 29, 2013

National Public Radio aired a fascinating story yesterday about the user-data generated by e-reading devices.  It’s not hard for publishers (and authors) to track whether you finish a book–and even, if you didn’t, how many pages you read before you quit.  This kind of information is clearly useful, and “misuseful.”  Will our literature become as market-driven as our politics?  Will a poetry collection be focus-group-tested prior to publication?
