4 Things That Drive Ebook Readers Crazy

These days, people love their ereaders — and it’s no wonder! Being able to read books on a screen is the biggest change in how humans read since the invention of the printing press! When else in human history could you find millions of books literally at the touch of your fingertips, and without even having to leave your house? Ereaders are the BEST.

But even the best things in life come with downsides. Here are a few of the things that drive ebook lovers like us CRAZY.

1) When people ask “Don’t you miss the feel of a printed book?”

Why is everyone always going on about the touch, the feel of paper? Paper is nice, and sometimes books are really pretty! But I’d take convenience of ebooks over paper any day: every book in the world, available right now! Ebooks are instant gratification!


2) When you’re waiting for the next book by your new fave author

You know how this goes. You hear about a book, you download it immediately (because you can with an ereader!), you read it (and everything else by that author) in a day. Can you say “obsessed”?

And then you get to the end, and all you can do is wait for this author’s next book. (We’re looking at you, George R.R. Martin.)


3) When you don’t know what to read next

This is the problem with infinite choice: there are so many books out there, how do you decide what to read???


4) When you spend all your money on books

We’ve all been there: there are just so many good books, and you want all of them all, and next thing you know you have no money because it all went into your personal library.


Yes, there is a solution

Okay, so there’s nothing we can do about the haters or about authors who just won’t hurry up and finish their books, but at the very least there’s a great new way to get recommendations and discounts on ebooks.
