Small things that matters!!

Before I begin with the post I want to tell why I am posting this instead of posting reviews on books. Answer is simple I didn’t read any book this week 🙂 I am stuck with “Nights in rodanthe” ( as usual no time to read in office because I recently got caught while reading 😦 ) and My sister’s keeper which I am managing to read whenever I get time.

This post is about free e books. I have seen many people downloading the e book in different format from sites which give it for free of cost.  E books are always available at low price compared to hard books.  There is another category known as online novels, which are given by authors to readers in free of cost (like “The Lycan series’’ by Nicky Charles on feed books). That is really good becuase books are available with authors permission.  But some e books are available for free without author’s permission.

Authors deserve to make money from book. Anyone that makes a copy of the book and puts it online or emails it to others is doing a mistake. Not only authors, but many artists like musicians, script writers and film makers are facing the same problem. There are lot of ways to copy the original stuff and give it for free online.

But a coin has two sides. Same way there are people I have seen buying books after reading the e copy of it. They say that its good to read it first then buy it. They say they can read books from new authors and then buy it rather than buyin it first and then keep it aside without reading. May be this free e books will help them.

    I would like to make a different point here. The feeling of seeing the crisp pages of a book and smelling a very newly published book is something which an e-book can never replace :).

    THANK YOU!!! It’s great to find readers sticking up for us–when we complain about piracy it seems so self-serving. Thanks!
