Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and CEO, reported there are 6 Kindles sold for every 10 physical books. There are lots of reasons:
- they are more affordable
- they are more portable. You can always have a book with you.
- they are more varied. Lots of new and exciting authors are publishing books they wouldn’t have been able to using the traditional model.
- more people are inspired to read by this 21st century approach to what’s been around since the 15th century’s Gutenberg Press
These are all anecdotal reasons. If you use a Kindle or Nook or any of the other ereaders, why did you join the revolution?
