- "I love the feel of a book in my hands when I read."
- "Sure, I'll get a book for my iPad but I really hate reading on the thing."
- "I really wish bookstores were back, I used to read so much more."
- "I can't even figure out the darn reading apps."
But on the streets, I keep hearing otherwise.
I even hear from writers who will tell me they love books in the traditional format.
Yes, we know brick and mortar stores disappeared, and now, it seems much of the reason for this shift was not so much the book buying trends but the bad business models some of the stores used. Many of these stores forgot they were a book seller and attempted to do much more.
So I thought I would try something. I will tell you, this will only work if we get some feedback from you.
What I am asking is to do a little survey for me. At the same time, ask all those around you what book format they really prefer. Take out the cost factor. Take out the fact that they might be forced to use Amazon because their bookstore shut down. Let's just focus on the book buying trends.
I also have a 4 questions survey you can take that would help us out! Forward this link to your friends. As we all know, the more numbers we get, the more accurate the results will be.
