This, That or Thought Thursdays


I will be participating in the This, That or Thought Thursdays that is hosted by Wholly Books! Make sure to go over and check out the blog there! www.wholly-books.com :)



This Week's Question: Do you believe that eBooks have changed the way booksellers sell books?

My Answer: Yes, definitely. Everything is made simpler with the process of buying an eBook. For instance, if you have a kindle all you have to do is click one button and it is on your kindle instantly. Therefore, you do not have to wait a few days for it to be delivered (in the case you order online). Authors can also post to Amazon to have an eBook which saves the cost of the financial struggles of getting published, and finding an editor. I also believe that it can be quite hurtful to some authors because in most cases you will be able to receive the eBook for cheaper than you would the hardcover copy of a book. Doesn't that in turn hurt their sales? Most people look at it as if they spend less on one then they can buy another for the price of one hardcover. I am different in that aspect because I do still like to have my actual books in hand. Don't get me wrong though, I do love my kindle. I have some books that I have bought a hardcover/paperback copy of, and still purchased the book on my kindle as well.

Everyone will have their own thoughts and opinions of eBooks. Some good, and some bad. What do you think?

  1. I've had a Kindle for 4 years and I absolutely think is the best thing I have ever owned. I haven't bought a single printed book since. I enjoy the Kindle very much, and I have purchased twice as many books since I have had it. I don't know how this effects the publisher or the author. But if you are really intrested in that, I am sure you could post the questions on book blogs and get a pretty good answer about how the authors feel about ebooks.
