The first E-Book?

11:06 mareku 0 Comments

"Host" by Peter James was published back in 1993 on 2 floppy disks. It sold 12.000 copies - not bad at all. However it was not the very first:  Project Gutenberg had been going since 1971 and a lot of books had been published on CD-Roms (think of all the encyclopedias). And what is a book anyway? So maybe we will never know what was the first E-Book - it was probably just a story / blog post on line in txt format.
