The RWA news section of my December 2009 RWR issue reports, “According to LibreDigital President and CEO Russell Reeder, allowing readers to preview book chapters before buying has a ‘positive impact on both print and ebook sales.’ Also, online browsing trends show that women spend 70 percent more time browsing books online than men; romance novels are the most popular….” (Rueters.com, 10/14/09)
