As a reader and a consumer, that article mirrors my feelings. I can’t remember the last time I bought a HC. However, I did purchase a few ebooks over the last couple of months. If a book was published that I wanted to read, before getting my EReader, I would either put a request in at the local library or see if it was at the used book store I frequent or just wait for the PB. My buying habits have changed over the past year. I used to buy as many as 5 PBs at a time but even cut back on that because of the rising cost. What I found interesting is that mysteries, thrillers, and crime are the top genre. I would have thought it to be the newest rage, that of PNR/UF.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”
