Purple door

Enjoyed this post by Kristin Cashore on her love for independent bookstores and rant about ebooks. I do have a Kindle now and like it but I'm definitely of the same mind -- printed books provide a different experience. So do indy bookstores (re: chickens at Wild Rumpus. Which incidentally has a special purple door...)

I can see this from the standpoint of the reader and the book store owner, but as a writer, I love having control of the product. Publishing via e-book costs this writer nothing, plus I don't have to deal with agents, editors and publishers. That is freedom.

If I self-publish a paperback, I have the cost upfront and most book stores won't have it on their shelves.
