The question however is still ringing in my head: Why would I want to publish ebooks, when I prefer to read pocket/hard cover? I don’t know.

Maybe it has to do with… But it could also be because of… However…Hmm…

The simple answer is that it’s easier to find somewhere to self-publish ebooks than to publish books.

The interest in ebooks is also growing every day. So while I do love to pick up a new book to hold, smell and turn the pages on (yes, I’m weird).
