Book Signings & Ebooks...What Do You Do?
With the emergance of ebooks and ereaders, I have been humming and hawing over the switch. I'm an old dinosaur and still love holding my books, love looking at all the books on my bookshelf. After considering all the pros and cons, at this point I'm still not convinced the ebook is right for me. One thing I hadn't even considered though was book signings! I just came across this blog post by Scholastic: The digital future of autographing books
So what do you do if you are attending a bookish event and have the ebook? If it's all about the convience of having the ebook ready in an instant, do you also buy the hardcopy? If not, would signed swag make up for it?
