ABSTRACT
Iceland's ash cloud arrived as the London Book Fair 2010 opened. The Bookseller reported footfall was down by a third and publishers reported 50 to 80 per cent of meetings were cancelled, but 'thin schedules led to constructive, leisurely meetings and a return to the serendipity of earlier years, while seminars were lively and busily attended'. The seminars on eBooks were particularly popular, and this article summarizes three that the author attended on 21 April 2010.
