Will you purchase e-books online?

March 3, 2009 9:50pm CST
Hi, Would you purchase e-books online or do you feel that all information obtained online should be free of charge? I have bought e-books online before. Its just like asking if you would still watch videos on Youtube when its no longer free. Meaning you have to pay a subscription in order to access videos on youtube.

I don't like e-books, so I prefer to buy printed books. My eyes are not good that makes me not like e-books. If youtube is no longer free, then I better save my money and buy somethings real.

Internet has a lot to offer even without buying. It's better to buy a hard bound book compared to an e-book.

Well it depends, I do not watch much TV anyway unless it is a really good movie, I would not mind to subscription. As for ebooks there are always free and paid copies, some people have the mindset that if it is free it is useless, that is why they are giving it free anyway.

I would not. I don't like buying things online. It just doesn't seem safe. I don't really trust the internet that much, so no, I would not buy e-books online. Besides, I'm not a big reader. ;)
