Bookish Ramblings # 2 - Why I Purchase Ebooks
One advantage of reading ebooks is that you can read at night (without having a light or small lamp on).
A third reason would be that since ebooks are sometimes cheaper, I'm able to try a new book from an author whose books I haven't read before. This would help me decide whether I'll carry on reading books from that author, and if so, then there's a possibility that if I really enjoy the book, I might decide to get a physical copy for myself.
Sometimes while I'm browsing through email lists from companies who advertise ebooks that are on sale, there are the occasions where I come across a book that might look interesting, and that I decide to look up on Amazon. If the book does sound interesting from the blurb I read; the next thing I'll look at is the price. If it's under $5, I'll most likely purchase it, and if I don't have the money to purchase it at that stage, I'll put it on my wish list and when I do have the money, go and purchase it.
