Oct 30, 2007

Hachette Book Group USA, a provider of books in print, online, audio, and print on demand formats, announced that it will produce its content in the new International Digital Publishing Forum's (IDPF) eBook format called ".epub." The new standard is intended to enable Hachette Book Group to produce and send a single digital publication file and ISBN that can be used on any digital platform that is capable of rendering a .epub file. This new process is meant to lower HBGUSA's ebook production costs and allow it to publish more titles as eBooks.
