A new report out today from Association of American Publishers indicates that eBooks are now the SINGLE dominant format in adult fiction comprising 31% of the market. I believe the stats are even higher for romance (all genres). Here’s a link to article from GalleyCat.
Up to 2 years ago, I was a die-hard print book fan. Couldn’t see myself switching to ebooks for many reasons, but the largest one had to do with price. That was back when an ereader was almost $400–remember those days–I used to say, “Do you know how many books I could buy with $400?” Now it’s a big chore for me to pick up a print book to read (and I get a LOT of print books sent my way).
Any die hard print book readers out there who don’t want to switch and never will? Any die-hards being nudged in that direction now that the cost of ereaders have plummeted and there are soooo many digital books selling inexpensively? What about you ereader fans who love love your ereaders, is there anything that would cause you to go back to print books?
***BTW, you still have until Friday to enter the PIMP MY READ Contest for a chance to win the Kindle Touch Molly O’Keefe is giving away on the blog.
