eBook quality concerns just another ruse for higher eBook prices

PaidContent has a post declaring publisher concerns over eBook quality. I say publishers shouldn’t pick on digital publishing until they address the long decline of the paperback and hard cover book. The last few traditionally bound books I’ve purchased from traditional publishing houses had various “errors” including typos and were plagued by an overall fragile physical book construction that barely survived the first reading. (The spine split on one and was severely damaged on the other.) I still have several serviceable paperbacks on my bookshelves that were printed over 40 years ago, so I’ve seen quality.

It makes more sense that the publishing industry be concerned with what readers want. Publishers have proven that their true motivations (See Apple price-fixing conspirators for clarification) have more to do with jacking up their prices than providing affordable, quality products. Their interest in eBook quality sounds like another justification for their over-priced goods.
