Confession of a former print book snob & other things
Yep, I know it's shocking! I really didn't like ebooks. I hated sitting in one place to read an entire book. With my ADD I move around a lot while reading. It's entertaining for others, but annoying for me. Plus I had the typical attitude of most ignorant, stupid & clueless people. If it didn't come from a NY publisher then it was't worth reading. Oh man I wasted a lot of time on CRAPPY NY print books.
What changed my mind? E-book readers!! I LOVE them!! I have an iPad and read books on it all the time. Mostly I love the instant gratification available with ebooks. There are new authors out there I never heard of until I started reading on the iPad. Now? I can't imagine not having these books on my auto-buy list. Love it!!
Now there's another topic I brought up over at FB this week & I want to know everyone's opinion. Here's what I asked...
"Why do stupid people talk to me? Really? Latest comment from the land of idiots: "Real writers aren't on FB.They have better things to do." Huh, looks like I'm not a real writer, nor have I written real books. I guess my readers are imaginary too, right? Hmm, somehow I don't think I could have come up with the crazies that are my readers. That's too out there even for me."
Now hit me with your opinions, thoughts & brain farts. I want to know exactly how this idiot makes you feel & what you want to do to him.
That's it for this week, peoples. Until next Wednesday....
