eBooks Galore

Joshua Wood Joshua Wood Profile: Joshua Wood

Hi all, over the holidays I purchased and eBook reader. The reader I purchased isn’t fancy in comparison to some of the models that are out in there but it does the job really well. After looking through the news it would seem that several other people also bought eBooks and eBook readers during the last year. eBook sales are up, double what they were last year.

All of this growth in the eBook sector comes at the demise of the traditional paper books. The traditional paper companies should be aggressively looking at the eBook market and how to improve their sales because it doesn’t look like a market that is going away. I for one really like the convenience factor and the fact that eBooks are cheaper than their partners makes it all the more worthwhile.
