  • We are obsessed with reading, with the reader, with how they behave, about their characteristics. \n
  • Making assumptions about the “typical” digital reader is incredibly difficult. Instead, we try to look for meaningful segments, smaller groups that do have some consistent behaviours.\n

  • She has been with us since June 2010. She probably had a first edition Kobo eReader and has since upgraded to a 2nd edition Kobo. We look at when people joined very closely and are starting to see some interesting patterns there. Generally, we can say that (#)\n\n

  • The last one is important. Our suspicion is that we’re not just moving more people from print to digital. We’re moving more heavy readers from print to digital more quickly.\n\n
  • \n\n
  • She also tends to buy just about everything she reads. Now we distort that a bit by preloading free books onto the eReader, but as far as her ongoing consumption goes, she’s a full on customer with a big focus on new releases.\n\n

  • While eInk consumers are big fiction readers generally, Small screen readers are especially strong consumers of genre fiction sub-categories like sci-fi, fantasy and mystery. But especially (#) romance.\n
  • They also have a strong propensity to go hunting for free titles, but we’ll talk more about that in a bit.\n

  • For the first time in a long time, we aren’t just thinking about what goes inside books or how they are designed or how they are marketed. We’re thinking about the reading experience itself. How can we make that experience easier, more enjoyable.\n
  • And how can we do it while keeping in mind that there are lots of different kinds of people who all have their own definition of what reading is.\n\n
  • When you get down to it, we are fighting for those tiny slices of people’s day. The more enjoyable we can make that, the more we can enhance that experience, the better we’ll be.\n
