The problem with ebooks
The reason ebooks will not be replacing books anytime soon is simple. The price.
It's not even work buying the Kindle version if you can get the actual books for the same price (or $2 more) The price of ebooks are phoney! You can't tell me that the price of producing the material to make it, plus shipping only accounts for $2-$3 dollars of the price?!?
Unbelievable and not worth the money. I'd rather get the hard copy for a few bucks more or if I wait a LOT cheaper used. It's a scam.
I rarely read stuff on my tablet and I see the reasons to buy ebooks, but I won't start unless they're at least HALF the cost of the actual book. When they start giving fair prices on their books, I'll start considering my options but until then, sorry. I'm going "buy the book"
That last sentenced made me laugh out loud.
Have a good weekend folks!
