The feeling is probably because I don’t purchase many books to begin with. I’ve only maybe ten books I’ve put down real money for digital reads? It’s maybe knowing Amazon isn’t going to die tomorrow may help, too.
But under my Where to Buy tab I list Indie book store finder first above all. You own a physical copy once you’ve purchased it. The bookstore owners aren’t going to track you down and ask for it back at will.
1. Can carry a book in my pocket.
I can fit my phone pocket in my back pocket or on rare occasion my front pocket. I’ve lucked out in wearing women pants that have functional back pockets but decorative/fake front pockets.
This allows me not to have to carry a purse (to the anger of purse makers everywhere) to bring books along. This frees up my hands or lessen the pain on my shoulders (they irritate my neck/shoulder) when walking around or at work.
2. Ease of Access!
When I’m not able to go to the bookstore or the library I can just get it through my computer, tablet or my phone. I can checkout a book while laying in bed not having to go anywhere. Every bookstore that I’ve entered has miserable flooring. I can walk any other store and my feet are fine but at the bookstore? They usually aren’t cushioned or whatever compared to other business floors, especially, the Barnes & Noble in my city. My god, I can’t even sit down on their floor to gain access to the bottom shelf.
But my bed, blankets and pillows are always comfy softness so…they win.
3. Less Space.
