Have You Done it Yet?

What's the latest scoop on ebooks and ereaders, folks? Do you know?
Maybe you haven't gotten yours yet because you think...well, I don't know what you think. But read on and discover how easy it is to download a book to read at your leisure. I think you will be pleased.

Check out the little bit of info Shawna Williams has to share with us.

By Shawna Williams

A lot of people don't realize they don't need an ereader to read an ebook. Also,I always have someone say, "What if the device breaks or crashes?" It's important that they know that know their purchase is recorded and they can download the book again at no charge. I think Amazon allows this six times or so. Many don't know they can read on an iPhone or Blackberry, and that you can have the book on several devices at once.

I've also found this to be helpful. Sometimes people get really upset at the idea of print books going out of fashion. I assure them that we will still have print books. Ebooks are simply another way to read. Ebooks make the publishing model more profitable, so actually more books have a chance of finding their way to publication.

A great analogy that Michael Hyatt (CEO of Thomas Nelson) uses is that print books will become like candles over time. The candle industry is still booming. People love them for the ambience and they make great gifts, but we don't use them to light our homes any more. This is how he sees the ebook/print book thing unfolding.

Thanks for that, Shawna.

How about you? What is your experience with reading books electronically, or downloading them to your computer, or Kindle, or Nook, or wherever?

When you get a chance, drop us a line. We would love to hear what YOU have to say.

In the meantime, happy reading in whatever way you choose to read that next sizzling novel.
