Morning spent at Beijing International Book Fair, in the cavernous China International Exhibition Centre out near the airport. We've brought over Dan Franklin of Random House (who've just merged with Penguin prompting a tantalising new name) to join a seminar about digital publishing. E-books are big in China, and there are lots of platforms, unlike in the UK where Amazon have 75% of the market. Me? I still prefer to read paperbacks.
