In the world of print, the library is king. Library sales comprise a
full 10 percent of total US book sales,
and publishers are happy to offer their biggest clients deep discounts
to get their titles on the shelves.
Not so for e-books. Libraries get no discount on e-books at all. In
fact, individual consumers pay less
for e-books than libraries do. What's more, libraries often end up
paying more for e-books than they
do for their physical counterparts.
