Holding your own paperback book is a treat

Kentucky Blue Bloods 200-300Ebooks are great. In fact, that’s how I buy most of my books today. I download them onto my Kindle app on my iPad. After all, Amazon makes it so easy to buy with one click.

But there’s something about holding a book you wrote in your own hands—turning the pages, glancing at the text, marveling that you actually wrote it.

That’s the way I felt with Kentucky Blue Bloods popped up on Amazon in paperback. I immediately “bought with one click” and a couple days later my package arrived. The book’s cover was just as lovely as it is online. The font size was big enough to read easily. I loved it!

There’s so much you can do with a paperback. I immediately ran a contest for my newsletter subscribers giving away four books (first come first serve). Many readers still love paperbacks, you know. I gifted one to my mother-in-law. I ordered a bunch from the publisher, hoping to submit a couple to a major book-signing event.

And paperback books just look pretty on bookshelves, don’t you think? They add to the atmosphere of a room. I’ve been collecting paperbacks novels (and now ebooks) ever since the ninth grade teacher Mrs. Neff told us it would be a good thing for us to do.

How about you? Paperback or ebook? Or does it matter?
