E-Readers, Celebrate: You're Winning

For a few years now there has been an ongoing debate among readers and writers: printed books vs. electronic books. Looks like the e-readers are winning.

According to The Boston Globe: “Since April 1, Amazon has sold 105 Kindle e-books for every 100 conventional books sold.”

Not only are e-books outselling printed books, but Kindle books alone are outselling printed books on Amazon!

Just in time for a summer weekend of relaxed reading, Tracks, a novel in stories, has been released in Kindle format. So if you’ve been waiting to add Tracks to your Kindle, your wait is over! What’s better, Amazon has it on sale for only $7.99. (The Kindle cover price is $9.99 and the printed cover price is $15.95.)

E-books began outselling hardcover books only a year ago. Since introducing Kindle books, it took only four years for them to emerge as the format of choice for Amazon customers.

Get Tracks on your Kindle now for only $7.99!
