There's at least one thing that ties us all together--we love novels. Some of us write them, but all of us love the pull of an engaging story. As a writer who depends on book sales for that next contract, I'm curious about current buying trends. The internet, among other things, have changed things.
So I'm curious. How are readers getting their stories these days? I realize it's not cut and dry. Because I'm so picky, I get 25% from the library. This is how I discover authors I love. Once I find them, I happily buy their backlist, either at the bookstore or at Amazon.com.
Before my Kindle broke (a moment of silence, please) I downloaded about 90% of my stories. I never, however, buy audio. I HATE listening to books on tape. But that's just me. I'm curious about you. Where and in what format do you purchase your stories?
Superstore (Walmart, etc)
Other Bookstore (Barnes and Noble, etc)
Online (Amazon, CBD, etc.)
PS Colleen sent me this photo from a Lifeway Store in Tennessee. Endcaps are a wonderful thing!
