John Grisham goes digital

From Publishers Weekly:

After a lengthy holdout, John Grisham is allowing his books to become available electronically. One of the most notable bestseller authors to withhold his titles from being converted into e-books, Grisham’s entire backlist–23 titles in all–is now available in the format. Grisham’s publisher, Random House, made the announcement this morning, noting that the prolific author has written one book per year since 1988, each of which has gone on to become a national bestseller. Grisham’s latest title is Ford County, which came out in November, and he has a forthcoming thriller due out in October.

John has been holding out for some time on principle; he believes digital downloads will hurt small bookstores.
