Some think that eBooks are killing the industry but in my (totally valid and 100% right) opinion, eBooks are just helping the industry grow. They’re attracting more readers who otherwise might only read online and they’re making books more and more accessible.
When I first got my Kindle, I thought I was going digital, just like when my friend wrecked all my CDs and I switched to a Spotify Premium account. But over time my collection of hardback and paperback books has continued to grow because there are some books that are just lovely to own a copy of.
Some for the artwork and photos, others for the beautiful cover, and others because they’re modern classics you can share with friends and family over and over. My copy of The Girl on the Train was passed around the office and ended up siezed by customs (with a load of luggage) when one of my colleagues flew back from Egypt last year.
