10 reasons for still buying regular books

10 reasons for still buying good old books even after buying eReader:

  1. If it does not come in a digital format
  2. For getting it signed by the author
  3. To read during take-off and lending
  4. For beach reading – I don’t want any sand on my Kindle
  5. Buying it for a present
  6. If it is a picture book
  7. If it is a classic, like Moby-Dick
  8. For children under 6 years old
  9. If you are on a trip and forgot your eReader
  10. After visiting one of the indie book store

Any more? Do you think that some of these will change? Will some of these cases, for buying the good old book, shape the future of the publishing market?

    I definitely want my local, non-big-chain book store to stay in business. That’s one reason I buy books from them. With many readers to give gifts to, and very few others into the eReader, it’s a pleasure to invest in keeping Cooperfields’ Books, Sebastopol, CA in business!
