Reading Indie vs. Traditionally Published Books

I’ve been reading articles about the potential of a bifurcated market in books right now. Some people believe that there could be actually two different groups of readers: those who read traditionally published books, and those who read self-published or indie books. If this is true, that means that the two groups of authors aren’t […]

My eBook Reader: My Best Friend

I have always been an avid reader. Once upon a time, that meant carrying a bag full of books with me everywhere I went: usually one set of books for school, at least one book of fiction, and at least one other nonfiction book for non-school-related research. A heavy backpack or messenger bag went with […]
