There are a lot of reasons to love E-books.
· No trees are harvested in order to create them.
· They take up only virtual space as opposed to real space so I’m sure they must help with the Feng Shui in people’s homes so that’s gotta be a good thing.
· You can load them by the dozens onto E readers, computers, palm pilots and other electronic media and carry them all instead of one or two paperbacks or hardcovers at a time.
· On the average, they’re considerably cheaper than bound books.
· No fuel is needed to transport the raw materials to the paper mills and printing presses and the finished product to stores.
· No chemicals are used to produce the ink and glue to print and bind the books.
Recently, another proof of E-book superiority has occurred to me. Most writers are voracious readers – I’m no exception. Like everybody else, the gas prices are killing my finances, and at four dollars a gallon, it’s really cutting into book buying budget. By reading E-books, I don’t have to waste gas by leaving my home to get a new book. I can browse endlessly online and pick out the prefect read.
