There are many controversial issues about e-books and paper books and many authors wonder which format they should choose to publish their titles. The truth is that both e-books and printed books have their own markets and particular advantages. Here are four reasons for you to use both formats when self-publishing.
In the previous post, we’ve mentioned a few strategies for bookstore owners to thrive in the digital age of e-books. We continue this post with a few more tips:
Offer your customers titles they are unable to find elsewhere. Some of your customers are likely to be fans of rare or out-of-print books that are not readily available online. Many out-of-print book enthusiasts also want to purchase printed rather than digital versions of these hard-to-locate works. Offer to search for these books for them and give these customers the option of having you order these rare books for them. Set a fee per book on top of the ordering costs, and many of your customers will be happy to pay you for this specialty service.
Owning a small independent book store can be a very rewarding business venture for those who enjoy reading and who have entrepreneurial ambitions.
The digital age of eBooks and electronic readers has made printed books less popular than in previous decades, but there is still a demand for them among many people who want direct interaction with other book enthusiasts.

While millions of people prefer continuing reading on paper, e-books are becoming more and more popular. Some people say printed books are living on borrowed time; others assure that e-books cannot compete with the magic of reading on paper. Who is right and who is wrong?
