Creative book merchandising. This is an important aspect because we have to realise that creating literacy, about books, about libraries will demystify the book, the book store and so on. It no longer seems elitist but interactive.
Creative merchandising of analog books can make a huge impact and improve discovery significantly so why does every ebook retailer feel the same? Amazon is nearly indistinguishable from Walmart and Overstock.com who are indistinguishable from Barnes & Noble and Kobo. In web design terms the retailer landing page is like the front 40 feet of the retailer - in a bookstore this is where most of the sites sales happen. There has got to be a better user experience that engages the customer and encourages them to browse and discover. ~ eP
