On my personal blog I posted a while ago about fifteen reasons why ebooks are better than print. While I still stand by my personal preference, I have to report that the demise of the humble paperback has been somewhat exaggerated.
How do I know? I had a royalties statement recently which showed that I had sold a paltry 39 copies of Honeymoon Heist in ebook format, and a rather more acceptable 1,027 in print. The same is true of my only self-published work, The Saved Saint. It hasn't sold a single ebook this year, but is selling steadily in paperback.
So it seems that despite the convenience of ebooks, many people still prefer the hard copy.
