You can’t just choose ‘e-book’ anymore. Now you must choose which format of technology to read these precious stories.
Mobile (iPhone or Android)
The choices expand every month. Forty years ago, you still had options of which material you wanted your book printed on, but imagine… what if not just paper, but perhaps cotton, leather, wood, chocolate (oh yes!), or stone (try balancing that on your head).
Which do you prefer: physical books or e-books?
If you prefer physical, the main choices are hardback or paperback.
If you prefer e-book, which format do you use most?
Personally, I’m still 70% physical books. I love the feel of the paper in my hands, turning the pages between my fingers, and more importantly the smell. There’s not many things in the world better than that new book smell.
The remaining 30% I go back and forth between iPad and my iPhone. Yes, I started reading books on my phone. A concept so foreign to me only 6 months ago. I have evolved (a bit), just as publishing is still evolving.
