We live in a tumultuous time all around, with the economy sinking and technology continuing to change habits and proclivities. It’s also an interesting time for the publishing industry, as we’re all watching to see how the economy will affect sales, and also keeping an eye on e-books and other new technological developments.
Have you noticed a change in how you buy books? Do you buy fewer? More? New/used? Do you buy them online or in bookstores?
My habits have definitely been changed in the past year. Now that I have a Kindle, I look first to see if books are available as an e-book. The ease and convenience of reading on a Kindle has been indispensable for me — I’m able to get so much more done now that I can read for work or pleasure anywhere, anytime.
What about you?
