Do I have a slight problem? Yes, I believe I do. I have more books than I can read. I really don’t need to download any more, but something about 1-clicking on a kindle book… ahh. It’s therapeutic
So, I was actually looking through my kindle library searching for a book when I started to notice that my books of choice seem to fall in very certain categories:
- Writing tips and how-to’s
- Self – publishing
- Paranormal Fiction (Romance, Erotica, YA)
- Chakras & Energy & Crystals
I’ve always had varied taste and the book categories above all make sense given my interests… all except Cookbooks. LOL! I don’t like to cook and I’m not much of a cook, but I still like to look. I have a lot of hardcopy cookbooks too. I think it’s the colorful pictures that attract me. I do love food.
But, the best part about all this? For all the books I have, the money I spend on e-books is so minimal. Self-pub authors are generous Not only do authors often run free promos, but most books can be had for $2.99 or less! I can spend more on a latte.
Being that I’m an author myself, I like to support the community. It’s a good thing for me. I grow my collection, I learn, and I’m entertained. For the author, it’s good as well. They get sales, ranking, and a new reader.
