On Demand’s POD Books Expanding to Drug Stores, Supermarkets
Por Dennis Abrams para Publishing Perspectives
On Demand Books, the makers of the POD Espresso Book Machine (which can currently be found in less than one hundred bookstores nationwide), has announced partnerships with Eastman Kodak and ReaderLink Distribution Services that could theoretically change the way books are purchased.
As reported by the Huffington Post, On Demand’s POD technology will soon be made available to retailers who have Kodak Picture Kiosks, currently found in 105,000 locations worldwide, including drugstores and retailers such as CVS, Target and Sam’s Club.
ReaderLink, a major book distributor, plans to bring book machines to an additional 24,000 retail outlets, as well as supplying commercially published titles to be printed on demand from the machines.
