Obviously, if you are reading this blog, you are already somewhat techno savvy, and you also probably know that the book industry is heading in a digital direction these days. If you are like me, you are wondering what that means for you.
First, let me get this out of the way: Paperbacks are sticking around. That’s my prediction. So no need to fear.
But the good news is that you will now have a choice between less expensive e-books and the average priced paperback or hardcover. You decide how to spend your money.
I hear you out there.
“E-readers aren’t cheap,” you say. “I’m not going to save any money by going the e-book route.”
“Not so,” I reply. “You already have an e-book reader. Maybe two or three!”
OK, enough fake dialogue.
You can download and read e-books on your computer: Mac or PC.
You can read on your Blackberry, Android, or iPhone.
You can read on your iPod Touch or iPad.

I am adding a link both on my blog and my website to the free apps for converting your existing device into a reader.
In the interest of full disclosure, I have signed up as an Amazon Associate, but because these are free apps, I’m pretty sure that means I’m making el zippo as far as commission.
I just wanted you to know that you can save money on Charlotte Collins–and on any other book purchases–by choosing an e-book, and you don’t have to get a Kindle. Although I may provide a link to that too. (I’m not going to lie. A commission on that would be great. All proceeds are going into the Charlotte Collins advertising fund to help me meet my ultimate goal.)
