Digital books are great! You can carry around a library in your purse and read anywhere. Plus, digital books are often cheaper to produce (and therefore, cheaper to buy) and are environmentally friendly. Still, paper books will endure. Here are three reasons why.
They Make Great Gifts
Print books make great gifts. I often give friends and relatives books for holidays and birthdays. There is nothing better than the gift of reading.
They are Easy to Share
People love sharing books with their friends and family. How many times have you read a great book and passed it along to someone else? The ability to share is one of the pleasures of reading. Sharing digital books is possible, but it’s not as easy.
There is Nothing Like a Print Book
Many readers love the feel and smell of print books. Reading is an opportunity to escape our chaotic lives and enter another world. There is just something about sitting outside or laying on the couch with a paper book and getting lost in a story. Reading a digital book just isn’t the same.
If you are considering publishing, your best option is have a print and digital copy of your book. This will make sure you please both types of customers. Which do you prefer: digital or print books?
