Today’s publishing world is changing, no question. E-books, especially, are having a big impact on how readers interact with books. But with so many opinions and statistics flying around, I decided to conduct my own survey right here.
I want to know what YOU think. How do you buy books? Would you take a minute to answer the questions below? To thank you for your time, I’ll be giving away a FREE print copy of Angel Falls to one lucky commenter!
Would you pass this link along, too? I’d be thrilled to get a ton of opinions.
