On finding new books

Brian O'Leary on (unaffordable) research by Forrester revealing how people find out about new books (commonly, friends recommend and lend them, or they get them from the library). So the licensing of e-books to one account blocks some of the traditional routes to finding out about new books and authors. Both the post and discussion bear reading, not least because of O'Leary's reference to having time to read, 'now is the winter of my desk content'.
