I've read some of the conversations going on about ebooks right now. I'm adding my 2 cents, even though I haven't read everything and may be commenting about something already discussed.
- I like to read curled up on the couch, in bed, outside in an Adirnondack chair, in the car while Juniors in school. I don't own a hand held device. I can't curl up and enjoy a good book on my computer. I don't read ebooks because they're not convenient for me. I think more and more people are reading ebooks, but how many are like me--somewhat computer clueless and not buying them?
- I consider myself an average romance reader. I read everything from Harlequins to Black Lace, and am comfortable talking about anything I read. I'm not so sure every romance reader is comfortable discussing the subject matter of most ebooks. They may read them, but they may not admit that they read them.
- When it comes to actual "review sites" how many are getting advanced reading copies of ebooks? AngieW is planning on giving away ebooks to readers that promise to write reviews.
Over the last few months I've read ebook reviews that have caught my attention, but when I visit the websites, I find the whole process rather clunky--hard to find the books, and my interest isn't so piqued that I "have to" have the book, and end up pulling something off my TBR pile instead.
