Google to sell digital books

Amazon has sold digital books (eBooks) for over five years now with an operating margin of 15% - 20%, compared to 4% - 5% for physical books.

While actual sales figures on eBooks are nearly impossible to come by from Amazon, it’s expected to be a growing market, much like the conversion from music CDs to MP3s and the like, albeit at a much slower pace.

Google has announced their own plans to sell digital books.
Apple can’t be far behind.

Prediction: Between now and the end of Macworld 2009 (January 5-9) Apple will offer, or at least make an official public announcement to offer, eBooks for sale via iTunes.
