How often do you have to explain to readers that your book is an ebook and not available as a paper book or as an audio book, but still just as awesome?
At one time, I told people that I didn't want to read any books that were on a device. I didn't want to read on my phone, or a Kindle, or my computer.
But, I feel like that was SOOOO many years ago, and I've been totally converted since then. I actually read on my phone, AND my Kindle, AND my computer!
I still enjoy the occasional paper book, but now I need cheaters (glasses that magnify) in order to read them!
Just the other day I was singing the praises of ebooks to a reader...
- Did you know there are like a gazillion books that are only available as ebooks?
- Did you know that some major publishers have lines that are only ebooks?
- Did you know you can download ereaders for free on all kinds of different devices?
- Did you know that you can change the size/color of the font on an ereader?
- Did you know that most ebooks are cheaper than paper books? (Unless you're using your local library!) (Which you totally should be doing!) (And you can totally get ebooks from your library!)
- Did you know you can download your favorite titles in just seconds for instant gratification?
These are just some of the many reasons to give ebooks a try!
I hope I gave them some ideas to think about and perhaps make them a convert!
How about you?
Have you converted any readers?How do you feel about ebooks, paper books, and audio books?
