As the sea of books deepens, discoverability is a serious problem. Authors of equal talent do not have equal access to readers, and readers struggle to sift through content. Each feels swamped by the digital "noise". A scarcity of attention is the direct product of this noise, giving authors less time to make an impression with readers.
The gap between talent and opportunity is widening.
When readers do stumble upon intriguing content, their user-experience fails to recreate the serendipity of the bookshop. Annoying file downloads, restrictive DRM and awkward page navigation deters many readers from sampling books. Without the impulse purchase, millions of books are left undiscovered.
Reader, author and publisher suffer.
