Here’s just a snippet from an excellent article in The Huffington Post by bestselling author Jason Pinter who is the author of the Henry Parker novels.
Ebooks should look to expand the book buying market, not be used as an alternative for the print edition. Look at the ads for the iPod: they’re fun, they’re cool, they feature all sorts of (pastel-colored) people who are far funkier than anyone you or I know grooving to the licensed beat. Then consider the ads for the Kindle: the music is straight out of your local elevator. Hesitant readers aren’t going to rush out to spent $299 to listen to the reading equivalent of John Tesh.
