Last night news broke Apple was planning an event in New York City this month.Now, further information on the event has leaked out. According to Alexia Tsotsis at TechCrunch the event will centre on iBooks and publishing.

Tsotsis’s source tells her it’s nothing “major.” Just more on ebooks and some updates for iBooks.

The semi-interesting thing about this is that Apple hasn’t just given up on iBooks. When it was first introduced, the idea seemed to be that Apple wanted to disrupt Amazon’s Kindle ecosystem. That hasn’t happened.
