There's an interesting article on E-Reads stating how e-book sales soared 4x from the previous February stats. But that wasn't surprising to me. Near the bottom the article ends with an interesting question and link to read another article: Can e-book sales bubble burst?
My gut is telling me no, not for a long time because we are seeing a rise in various hand-held devices that read e-books coming to the service. We are living in a tech world and with the surge of these devices I'm expecting the prices to drop which will make them available to more people.
I have a Sony e-reader and love it. Storing over 300 e-books I take it with me everywhere. Although it doesn't have that sweet smelling 'paper' scent I love from my print books, I still get the same gratifying read anywhere I choose. And it's the convenience of carrying more than one book that I love the most.
What about you guys? Do you have an e-book reader? Which one?
For those who don't, what's keeping you from buying? Prefer print over e-book? The price of an e-reader preventing you from purchasing?
So many companies are hopping on board and it's the wave of the 'reading' future.
