Another One Bites the Dust — Jill James

Sony closed their eBooks store March 20th, and yesterday there was notice of Diesel eBooks closing at the end of the month. eBook retailers are falling like flies. Will we only be left with Amazon and Apple?

Where do you purchase your eBooks?

Jill James, writer of contemporary and paranormal romance

  1. I was a hardcore Nook girl, but recently got a plain Kindle. Amazon has a lot more self and indie writers as well as free books. I like Nook’s lend me option. I mostly buy from these two and on occasion from the epublisher directly.

    • Thanks for stopping by the blog. I got a Nook the Christmas they came out and recently I got a KIndle. I do like the ease of 1-click shopping.

  2. I have a nook and ipad. So I use both, but recently mostly Amazon on my iPad. The selection is better and the upload is one step. I guess I’m techie lazy, like to push buy only once.

  3. The only places I have used to download ebooks are the publisher’s website, (TWRP) Smashwords, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. I have an Iphone but I usually get my books from Amazon. And I love my paperwhite Nook, but I read most of my ebooks on my phone or my generic ereader because most of my books are in Kindle or PDF format and Nook won’t open kindle books and it’s too much of a hassle to load PDF’s. IMHO, to remain competitive, ebook stores need to offer more than just one ebook format to accommodate the various phones and ereaders. And phones and ereaders need to come equipped with aps for multiple ebook formats.I guess that is why it seems Amazon is taking over the publishing world. There’s an ap for that. 🙂

  4. Lily, thanks for stopping by the blog. We got my MIL a Paperwhite for Christmas. I think there is a Nook app for phones too. I love having a dedicated reader to read eBooks so I can just enjoy the book.
