To Kindle or to hold

Looking back at my recent sales, more of my books are sold through Kindle sales than paperback. Who knew? The leaps and bigger leaps technology is experiencing! How much more can a phone do? And now reading a book you download from a website onto your gadget? Faulkner would freak!!

For me, I like holding. I need to touch the paper, the letters, bend the pages back as I turn to the next. I like to feel the cover and check out the spine without having to click on something. I’m tactile. I’m hands on. But my readers are more in tune with the times, I guess. Just maybe I need to catch up.
