eBooks have won

6-0
This picture was taken a few days ago at the "Metro" in Madrid. You can see that six people are reading eBooks and that no one has a traditional paper book. To me, this is a clear indication that eBooks are winning the battle and that soon most people will read their books in electronic form.

This is great news for indie authors who currently publish most of their books in electronic form. The market is growing really, really fast and changing everyday. This reminds me of the 2001-2005 period when we went from almost nobody owning a digital camera to a situation where almost everybody had one. This is happening with electronic readers right now. Two-three years ago almost no one had one but I expect that by 2015 almost everybody will.

In my particular case, I got an electronic reader for Xmas 2011. Before that, I read something like 30 books a year. Last year I read 50. This is mainly due to two factors:
  • I read in more places. With my electronic reader always in my handbag, I am able to read in many situations where I would not have carried a traditional book.
  • I am able to get the books I want faster. If I find out about an interesting book on the TV, newspaper, internet, I can buy it and start reading in a few minutes. With a traditional book, this would have taken days or weeks, and many times I would have forgotten about the book by the time I could have purchased it.
This is also great news for out platform, babelcube, where we want to put independent authors in touch with translators, so that their books can be sold in many more markets and to many more readers. So, we are really excited with the fact that eBooks are winning the battle!!

  2. Welcome to your new position as a summer employee at five nights at freddy's, a place where both children and their parents come to be entertained and to consume an endless supply of food. Naturally, Freddy Fazbear and his two companions are the most interesting aspects of the story. They are programmable animatronic robots, and their only purpose is to entertain the audiences. However, the conduct of the robots at night has become rather erratic, and it was far more cost-effective to engage you as a security guard than than search for a repairman.
