This, That or Thought Thursday (8)


Hey you,

Welcome to This, That, or Thought Thursdays hosted by yours truly! Feel free to join in the fun by posting your thoughts about the topic on your blog and leaving a link in the comments or as always feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts.

This Week’s Question:  If there was an option to buy a print copy of a book with a download of the ebook (kind of like the DVD/Digital combo pack) for a couple dollars more would you buy it?

My Answer:  YES! A MILLION TIMES YES!! This is something I would absolutely freaking LOVE if publishers would do! How amazing would it be to be able to read the book on my kindle but also have a pretty hardcover copy on my shelf without having to pay the full price twice. 

Honestly, I think it's a great idea. The movie industry does it and technically the music industry does too (you can buy the CD then download it to itunes or vice versa) so why can't the publishing industry? Seriously, if there are reasons why they aren't I would love to hear them because I honestly don't know.

I just don't see the reason for having to essentially buy the same exact product twice. Now, to be clear, I AM NOT SAYING THAT YOU SHOULD DOWNLOAD ANYTHING ILLEGALLY. I am very much against pirating. All I'm saying is that it should be a way to do it LEGALLY. And yes, I would be willing to pay a little more for the combo pack.
