Good morning Novel Racers. I'd love to say I've been to La Baguette Chaude (a wonderful patisserie in St Helier) and bought you plates of delicious temptations, but all I can offer you is a very unexciting choice of chocolate digestives and Rich Tea biscuits to go with the instant coffee and tea that I have on offer.
A few months ago - maybe only four/five - my husband asked if I'd like him to buy me an e-reader. I shook my head, without giving it any thought at all and told him that I couldn't imagine ever reading anything other than a paper book. Hark at me! Now, though, I'm the proud owner of a Kindle and not only can I not imagine ever being without the little treasure again, but I'm also going to visit my step-mother and sister this afternoon and will be showing both of them how convenient it is, not to mention easy to use.
I still have a passion for paper books - you only have to see my teetering tbr pile/s and the receipts from this weeks visit to town to know that - but I'm a definite convert to the e-reader and love to have the choice.
So, my question today, Novel Racers, is do you have an e-reader, or are you strictly a paper book reader? Also, would you submit your manuscript to a publisher that only publishes e-books, or would you prefer to have your book published in paper form? Personally, being a tad greedy, I'd like both...
