What do you think of e-books? Are you a fan?
When I started producing the Lunchbox planners nearly a year ago I was pretty convinced that they were the way of the future. And with the purchase of an ipad, I am now A BIG FAN. I think the viewing and reading experience is really fantastic. In fact I think it’s a bit bittersweet – I LOVE books and have a house full of them. And I love the library! There’s such a nice sense of community there – ladies knitting, toddlers singing and giggling teens ‘studying’. But I think the days of going to a physical place to borrow physical books might be numbered.
But publishing e-books, particularly visual ones, is a bit of a nightmare at this stage, with so many formats, incompatible readers and the big corporates all trying to own the market (yes, Apple, I’m talking to you) which is why at the moment I still offer the lunchbox planners in PDF format, which can be viewed by everyone on any PC. And if you’re a tablet user, you can transfer these files to your device, which is SUPER handy.
So while I keep investigating my options and the best way to get digital content to you, here’s some helpful links that get your e-books onto your ipad and Android tablets. Keep in mind that I haven’t tested the Android experience, if you have, I’d love some feedback.
What are your thoughts about the whole book revolution? Are you excited, or a bit sad?
And of course, I do still have plenty of stock of the VS cookbooks as real live books. At this rate, they might be collector’s items one day, so get in quickly, and buy your copies here…
