In an encore performance of one of TOC NY's most popular sessions, Michael Tamblyn will cover reader trends learned from the Kobo platform. The other major ereader platform vendors generally don't share this sort of information, so you won't want to miss seeing some of the more interesting and unexpected trends Kobo has discovered.
