I love books.
All kinds of books.
Novels, biographies, interior design books, positive thinking – self-help books.
How many times while reading a particular book, as you pick it up and put it down again, do you look at the cover?
Well you glance at it every time you pick it up
and perhaps you peruse it a couple of times,
and once or twice you probably really look at the cover
and read the description of the book and about the author.
However, when you buy an ebook, how many times do you see the cover?
I just finished reading an ebook and went to record it into my Goodreads account
and realized I didn’t know the name of the book or the author.
If you would like to follow me on Goodreads then go right here.
I saw the cover twice.
Before I bought it and when I opened the book to start reading.
The book was okay.
Will I remember the name of the book in a month from now?
Will I remember the author a month from now?
If the book was great would I remember the name of it then?
I do think the chance of that would be much higher.
But that book would have to really be memorable.
And I miss placing the book on my bookshelf and
occasionally looking up and remembering that book.
I fully understand the qualities of ebooks,
but I always miss not having the actual book in my hands.
Do you miss seeing the book cover?
I think of all the work that goes into creating a book cover
and yet when reading an ebook I barely get to see it.
Will the art of creating book covers go away?
