Will e-books expand the trashy exposé market?

Late last week, a friend forwarded a press release entitled “Publication Date Set for ‘Manhattan Madam’ Tell-All EBook.” It announces that Kristin Davis’ “biographical peak inside NYC’s sex-industry” will go on sale February 20.

Says my friend, “‘EBook’ in the headline of the press release? Classy. But perhaps it’s shrewd — no shameful shuffling in the checkout line, no awkward moments when your boss and his wife are over for dinner, perusing your bookshelves while you serve the hors d’oeuvres… Just a little secret between you and your hard drive.”
