This, That or Thought Thursday


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: Do you believe that ebooks have changed the way booksellers sell books?

My Answer: Absolutely! They had too. In today's world, everything is rapidly changing and it's either change or move over because someone else will. Right now, I believe that ebooks are still changing the publishing industry. All of the publishers are still trying to figure out the best way to market books and ebooks. They have to figure out what prices people will buy ebooks at and what prices seem to be just a little too much. 

One of the things I believe that ebooks have changed the most is in the marketing and promotion. For example, Epic Reads is always doing special promotions of books that they have marked down to $1.99 or $2.99. Honestly, this is when I buy most of my ebooks. Like I said last week, ebooks are more convenient but I still love being able to look at a physical copy on my shelf so I'm not willing to pay a lot for a ebook if I can go by the physical copy for about the same price. I really think this was a great idea for publishers because it's a way that they can make a little money but also hopefully get readers hooked on a particular writer and have to buy more books by that author. 

But all of that is just my opinion. What do YOU think? Let me know in the comments!

UPDATE: A close friend...actually future sister-in-law started a blog recently. She posted her thoughts on her blog Southern Owl Reads. Be sure to check out her thoughts here! Oh, and I'm sure she would be thrilled if you followed her!!
