DON'T Buy Printed Books As Gifts!

Don't blame John Scalzi for this. Others have been saying it too: Buy some damn books.


If you buy print books you are only encouraging existing publishers to:

1) Continue with paper

2) Continue their automotive-industry-like ways

3) Continue their Internet-clueless ways

4) Sail along on false hope that they aren't doomed

Instead, buy an eBook reading device or an eBook gift card.

Or even anything else -- but not printed books!

Show the print publishing industry some tough love this holiday season.

Slap them in the wallet so they'll wake up to the 21st-century.

They need to!
