A Chick Ponders Bookish Things

Ebook lending sucks. Ebooks from libraries suck too. There are too few copies and not enough selection. I understand publishers wanting to sell books, but we lend our hard copies to friends, why not our ebooks? It just doesn't seem fair.

Ebooks are highly overpriced in comparison to other digital media. In fact, unless you are buying a brand new, only out on hard cover book, you aren't saving money. Once a book makes it to mass market paperback, you are better off buying a physical copy of the book. Unless you don't want your friends/co-workers/family to see you reading that smut novel (LOL).

I love ebooks, because I love discovering new Indie authors, but I seldom buy major authors on ebook format, because it is such a waste of money.

What do you think?

I feel that e-books are overpriced as well and haven't bought a single one. I would rather buy a physical copy of the book instead. I've only read e-books that are for tours and that are free on Amazon or B&N.

Great post!
