40 years of ebooks (infographic), by Piotr Kowalczyk | TeleRead: News and views on e-books, libraries, publishing and related topics

40 years of ebooks (infographic), by Piotr Kowalczyk | TeleRead: News and views on e-books, libraries, publishing and related topics:
"When I finished the infographic and showed it to my wife, she said: “Forty years? No way. Four, maybe.”

“Four, maybe” – it’s what most people think. Most people are still convinced that e-books are a fad. That’s why I was looking for a convenient, all-in-one way to challenge this myth. I hope it works. Every year shows not only the information about e-books, but also other facts and achievements. This builds a good, thought-provoking time reference."
