So you’ve poured your heart into your writing for the last year, and you are finally reaping the benefits of seeing your literary masterpiece in print. You can hardly believe it, but you are holding a book that YOU wrote right in your very own hands!! Soon, other people will be holding your book in their hands too! They’ll curl up in their favourite cosy chair by the fireplace and get lost in the magic of your story while the snow falls softly outside their window. In fact, they’ll probably love your book, and read it over and over. You revel in these exciting thoughts for a moment, and then your gaze settles on YOUR favourite book, which just happens to be sitting on your counter. You look more closely at this beloved book, which you’ve read roughly 60 times… Hm-well, it’s obvious that this is your favourite-the binding is so broken down you’re missing pages 12 and 102, there’s that hot cocoa stain on the first page (used to be on the cover too, but that fell off years ago), and it has that strange smell of wet cardboard.
You realize with dawning horror that YOUR masterpiece could end up looking like this some day-a was beaten, broken-down, smelly old version of your clean and shiny new book. Fret not-more and more avid readers are choosing digital versions of books today. Your story can be preserved in a beautiful digital format that will forever be shiny and clean.No dog-eared pages, no coffee stains, no cracked binding-just crisp black print on blinding white pages.
