The Product Manger for Google Books spoke at Digital Book World yesterday and shared that Los Angeles is among the top five cities that have most embraced Google's eBookstore, according to Mediabistro. Does this bolster our belief that L.A. is truly a literary city or simply prove that L.A. is a tech-savvy city? Either way, we're pleased to be at the top five of a literary list for once and we'll take it! As Google plans to lease over 100,000 square feet of office space in Venice, including the famed Gehry-designed Binoculars Building, our bookish rise may just be getting warmed up.
