After Oyster, What's Next for E-book Subscriptions? - Publishers' Weekly

Where are they going?
Panzer made a trip over to the Publishers' Weekly site today.When he was digging around in the posts there, he found one about Oyster's announcement they'll be closing their doors next year.

The post by Andrew Albanese and Jim Milliot (with help from Calvin Reid) concerns the future of ebook subscription services after the demise of Oyster. The beginning of the post deals with the issues Panzer described in his post last week: Part of the Oyster staff will move to Google and the competition from other subscriber services. The post goes on to explain about traditional publishers' acceptance of the subscription model. In general, the post presents a positive future for ebook subscription services

Panzer says, "Will ebook subscription services survive is the question inquiring cats want to know."

Note: This is a h-u-m-o-n-g-o-u-s post. Bring two gallons of tea and a dozen muffins. Also bring your favorite blanket and pillow to take a nap halfway through the post.
