Readers have more choices than ever. They have more books available to them, at lower prices, than ever before. It doesn’t matter where they live, or if they can physically get to a bookstore or library, because ebooks are delivered instantly. It doesn’t matter if they have vision problems, because ebooks have adjustable font, or will even read themselves out loud.
Ebooks are the best thing to happen to readers since the Gutenberg Press, and to the writers who are now able to reach those readers directly.
This is only one small quote from a very long take-down, and the whole thing is worth a look if you’re in any way interesting in writing, reading, or publishing books. (And assuming you haven’t already read the post, given it’s a few months’ old by now…)
