DON’T Buy Printed Books As Gifts!

Don’t blame John Scalzi for this. Others have been saying it too: Buy some damn books.

DON’T!

If you buy print books you are only encouraging existing publishers to:

1) Continue with paper

2) Continue their automotive-industry-like ways

3) Continue their Internet-clueless ways

4) Sail along on false hope that they aren’t doomed

Instead, buy an eBook reading device or an eBook gift card.

Or even anything else — but not printed books!

Show the print publishing industry some tough love this holiday season.

Slap them in the wallet so they’ll wake up to the 21st-century.

They need to!

    POD is an equal part of the 21st century, and that’s paper. I have bought paper books and will always buy paper books. For myself and others. When books stop being printed on paper, I’ll stop reading them. Period.
