E-books 'will soon outsell paperbacks'

From Stuart Miles on Pocket-lint

"I think we [Amazon] will sell more Kindle books than paperback books in the next year [2011]", Steve Kessel, the man tasked with making the Kindle the number one ebook reader in the world, told Pocket-lint in an exclusive one-to-one briefing.
And here's an interesting discussion on the future of e-books from TechCrunch.
