ePublishing is my latest branch of research that I have been exploring. I have read several blogs talking about the success and the downside of ePublishing. http://jakonrath.blogspot.com/ This blog was very informative and gave me a more concrete understanding of what is the trend and what one could gain or lose from ePublishing.
An important and old fashioned thought clings to me. I would love for people to read my books and if ePublishing is the way to do it, I will gladly go that route and hope for success. However, there is an old fashion side of me that would like to see my books in hardback on my shelf. There is something very beautiful about that vision and I don’t want to completely let it go.
But from the few blogs I have read about ePublishing, I have discovered there is a lot to learn including the rights on the internet, profit of selling on the internet versus print. There is a SUBSTAINAL difference is percentage, the increase in eReaders, and the self-promoting involved with ePublishing opposed to the promoting you would get with a publisher and/or agent.

Stemming from eBooks, I found this article http://ireaderreview.com/2010/04/24/kindle-vs-nook-review-2010/ for those interested in getting either a Nook or Kindle. It is the latest comparison of the two.
