E is for e-books. As you all know I love to read. I love books. I have stacks of them by my bedside. I have shelves full of them. I have boxes waiting at my dad’s full of them as well. I will never stop buying physical books because I just love to hold them in my hand and smell the pages. January of this year was the first time I’d ever purchased an e-book.
While having kids that last few years I was out of the the whole book scene and e-books really emerged. I wondered when or if I would ever buy one. If you are an Indie author then this may be the only way they are selling them so of course I will purchase it. It’s also a great way to read a book you’ve heard about but are not sure you want to spend the $15 or so dollars to buy the book. Then if you like it, you can buy the rest of their books. At least that is what I am using it for.
I think this is a great way to market your book. I’ve seen a rise in short stories published as e-books now. A great way for you to get to know the writer.
I’ve also seen a lot of specials going on for FREE books. I’ve stocked up on those especially for my kids. I think the only drawback is that I cannot share my e-book with a neighbor or friend like I can a physical book. But perhaps I am wrong and there is a way. If so, please let me know.
I thought I’d put some links here for e-books that I have read and loved. There is a mixture of both Indie and traditionally published authors. What are your thoughts on e-books?
