I have a simple question for you, do you read e-books?
E-book sales have soared in the past two years. Some independent publishers are now reporting that up to 50% of their sales are in e-books.
I can see why. The e-reader technology has gotten a lot cheaper (a simple Kindle is now $69), and Americans are more used to staring at screens for long periods of time than ever before.
For myself, I’m not sure. I know that there will always be certain books that I want to hold in my hands, it’s part of the experience. But for a lot of books that I would pick up as a cheap trade paperback, why not give it a try? You can sometimes save a couple bucks, and the Kindle’s a lot lighter than a stack of books.
Do you read e-books? Why or why not? If not, do you plan to? What would it take to convert you to e-books?
Let me know what you think.
