Shelf Awareness has a nice little update on a recent survey that explores consumers' opinions about e-books, e-readers, and print books. The survey, produced by Verso Digital, projects a slower uptake of e-readers and e-books than that foreseen by many digital enthusiasts, and the long-term persistence of print--and of bricks-and-mortar bookstores. The survey also points up the chief interest of consumers in every market, price:

80.7% of respondents said they were very likely or somewhat likely to buy e-books from independent booksellers if titles are priced competitively.
