I saw this article Friday and shared it with my writers’ group. There are good reasons not to put all of your proverbial eggs in one basket — in terms not only of discoverability, but also availability. E-book sales had been flattening for some time, so a drop didn’t surprise me at all. Everyone who wants a reader pretty much has one at this point, for starters. And second, yes, eyestrain from using them really is a “thing.” I travel for my day job and, while I take my eReader with me because it saves space, I really cannot tolerate reading it on an airplane. We’re learning as we go with this stuff, I think.
Thank you for your comment. We are, as you say learning as we go. Kevin Virus-free. http://www.avast.com
