    • I understand you. To write and to publish are absolutely different stories. For publishing real books you have invest a lot of money with no guaranty to get it back, and not inly that. There are a lot of other things that make this process hard.
      For new generation electronic books are preferable. It makes writers job easier. 🙂❤️

  3. Books a thing of the past? Blasphemy! I cannot imagine a time when this artform no longer lines our shelves, perches longingly on our bedside tables, or sits patiently on that corner chair. Long live books and those private sellers who still can exist in this fickle world.

    • I believe, books will never die. See what happen with with LP records. It was time Cassettes then CD dominated, and LP almost disappeared. Nowadays they in a high demand again.

  4. Sad if true. I could no longer write effectively without a word processor, electronic magazines or newspapers are still OK, but for books I need the object, not so much for reading, but to then have it in my library, to know that it is accessible anytime for a long time.

    • I am not against electronic books and other things, and even use them pretty often. However, book for me is the piece of Art created not only by the writer, but artist, editor and publisher too. The electronic version is just a source of information.

  5. I only read real books. It’s the feel of the pages and the place Reading and Writing has always had in my life.

    • I am with you at that point. Even the holding a book in the hands cteates the awe to the pleasure of reading.

  6. I don’t mind the electronic writings but for some things like a book, I prefer to read the printed version in my comfortable seat 🙂

    • It is absolutely different feeling to read the real one. I do the same.
