Video: My Friend Amy and Booking Mama on E-books

Last Friday at BEA, Amy from My Friend Amy and I were interviewed by Publishers' Perspective about e-books! I was so excited to see that it was posted on YouTube, but I have to admit that it's very hard to watch myself. Please know that my hair and my make-up usually don't look quite that bad (I had been up since 4:00 and got caught in the rain.)



I know we were speaking for ourselves, but I hope we conveyed some of the same ideas that you have concerning e-readers. Please leave a comment with your thoughts about e-books and e-readers.

You two did a great job representing bloggers all weekend. I'm proud to call you both REAL friends now!

Mary said...

Great job, ladies!

I still love my kindle but also still have so many books on my shelves. I've been slowly reading them and giving them away. Will eventually be reading mostly ebooks, I'm sure. It'll be a while :)

Meghan said...

I think you both look great and you definitely represented what I'm thinking. Wonderful job! =)

Molly said...

You both did GREAT!

I am so glad that I had the opportunity to meet you this weekend, if only for a short time. I can hardly wait until the next blogger meet-up.

Well done ladies, I think you nailed it. They are so expensive. I live in Australia so the availability is very poor and the price is rediculous.

Chris said...

You guys look great! Way to represent.

The price is a big deal to me. I'm in Canada and e-readers are much more than in the US. Also Kindles aren't available here yet.

OMG how tired do we look in that still??? Haaaaa! :) Okay now to watch it.

I agree with what you said about the ereaders. Love the idea, love how they look, but cost is a big barrier. And you look great what are you talking about? :)

Stephanie said...

Great video! Thanks for sharing!

First off, you guys are so cute. You look great so I'm not sure what the hair comment was all about. LOL.

I don't think e-readers are for me. I prefer the feel of a book in my hands. That said, if I won a Kindle I'd give it a shot, but I am guessing the novelty would wear off quickly.

The cost of the Kindle is a one-time thing but the ebooks are not cheap. They would have to be pretty cheap for them to appeal to me.

Awesome!! I loved watching this.

Nice video.

I own a Kindle 1 and I LOVE it!

I really prefer to read on it rather than the phsyical paper books any more.

I totally agree that the cost to purchase an e-reader is crazy but I knew I would love it and I knew it would eventually save me money and space that I felt it was worth the investment. :)

I really want an e-reader in color but that would only benefit the cover of the books I read so not a big deal. :)
