What a long strange trip it's been.
Don't laugh. I don't own an e-reader. In fact, I gave away a iPad a couple of years ago to my friend Aaron because I didn't like it.
As anyone who has been reading this blog knows, this has been a slow evolution.
The deciding factor? I want to read my fellow authors' offerings, and...again, don't laugh...that might get kind of pricey. I've probably got 50 authors I'd like to give a try, among the Books of the Dead roster and the Ragnarok roster. My kinds of people, my kinds of books. Plus, there is always a chance they'll reciprocate. But that's not the main reason. The main reason is that I want to know what's going on. That's my fault. I'm always analyzing.
I may not read all of them, or all of them all the way through, but I feel like I owe it to them to try.
I've got hard copies of all the BOTD books that were in print six months ago, to sell in the store, but again, I have a rule that if I read a book I have to classify it as "used." So again, that could get kind of pricey.
I still love physical books. I have no intention of giving up on them. But I also want to peruse the wide variety of books available online, many of them very cheap or even free.
So once again I am dragged kicking and screaming into the modern world.
