Random House announced that they had increased their e-book sales  400% in the first half of 2009 thanks to e-book sales of Dan Brown‘s The Lost Symbol. However, despite this made up only 5% of book sales – more than for most books, but less than the hype surrounding e-books would suggest.

Meanwhile in the UK, The Book Depository has made a whole load of e-books free (11,000 of them), but guess what? They all seem to be out of copyright titles – Guttenberg.org anyone?
