A roundup of recent publishing news:

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports on the growth of open access scholarly journals and publisher efforts to stop book piracy, The Electronic Frontier Foundation discusses digital book buying, and Huffington Post provides a forum for Jason Pinter to express enthusiasm for the current state of publishing.

Amidst all the doom and gloom … I just want to take a moment to proclaim that this is quite possibly the most exciting period to be a reader in my lifetime. Think about it: when was the last time books and publishing were as much a part of the daily conversation as they are now?
