The Oddities of Digital Books

At these tech conferences, you hear a lot about the enhanced ebook. There is the belief amongst some publishers that if they throw in some video and audio, we readers would be willing to pay more for a digital book. This might be true in some circumstances and I’m not discounting a market for enhanced books, but this is one area in which I wish publishers would learn how to walk before they started running. By that I mean, let’s perfect the plain old digital book. The following are a series of screen caps from Maili as she was browsing her Sony Reader and Kindle libraries of digital books.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com
