Results were released from an Ipsos/Livres Hebdo survey yesterday which showed that 61% of respondents had heard of eBooks, and about 8% had read one. This poll was based on a survey group of 3,000 French consumers, and was conducted a couple months ago. Unfortunately, there is still something discouraging eBooks in France. About half of those who had tried eBooks never finished their first one. It’s not clear why that happened, but it could be due to beginner’s troubles, lack of technical support, or any one of many reasons.
