Privacy – The biggest reason people buy books online than at stores?

When you have a good book in mind, what is the first thing you do to acquire it? I like to buy cheap books online in UK and if you are like me and you love reading books during your daily office transit, then perhaps you prefer books on your Kindle rather than a paperback, right? The number of people who prefer reading electronic versions of their books rather than physical copies is steadily increasing and there are quite a few reasons for the change.

Personally, I’m one of those few people would still love to hold physical book once in awhile, stroking the pages and smelling the piney fragrance of that make paperbacks so special. But I don’t see so many books anymore, except in libraries. Why are more of us buying e– books or even paperbacks online and not at bookstores? I’ve got a few opinions of my own that I’d like to share with you.

We appreciate the little privacy about our choices, don’t we. When you are at the store to buy a book, you will have people looking over your shoulders and from the corner of their eyes checking out your choice of books and not refraining from making judgemental comments about your selection of book. I do not appreciate unsolicited ‘expert’ comments or book advice, and perhaps you don’t either. I buy cheap books online in UK and store them in the privacy of my electronic readers, away from the prying eyes of others. And when I’m committing on the Underground, it’s easy for me to keep my e-books to myself rather than have half the coach peeking over my shoulder and making assumptions about my choices in literature! What about you? Why would you buy cheap books online in UK? Tell us about it in the comment section and share your experience with us.
