Buying ebooks

India
July 30, 2012 8:34am CST
Lot of people are interested in downloading the free version of the ebooks, very few persons will buy the ebook full version by paying. I wonder why the people don't give importance to the hard work of the author and don't come forward to buy it by paying? Do you think downloading sample version is enough to get the full information? What about you? are you interested in buying the full version of ebook or just download the free version of the sample?

Hi friend, glad to know about your concern, but not every person have the same concern like you, if every one is in your sort, then lot of authors who are writing ebooks will face a great trouble and give up their activities. Not every one is struggling for online income. The person who know about the online earning tactic will earn a lot from online using their smartness Thanks a lot for your reply

I haven't tried buying an ebook. I would usually find a free full version online and then I just download them. If I were to buy a story or article, I would prefer buying 'real paper' books rather than ebooks. What I do after reading an ebook, I delete it from my library, that's fine because I did not pay for it. So if I will buy something, I would want to be able to keep it for good

If I want to buy them I will prefer to buy the paper books rather than ebooks. I just have ebooks that given for free online and I don't download sample version. If I found an ebook that I like I will surely buy it.(^^)

If the Ebook is really interesting then people love to buy it. And yes you are discussing about Ebook, Ebook is the digital version of the book. To buy ebooks we need credit cards. In India it is impossible for everyone to have a credit card. I also facing this problem to buy ebooks. By the way you started cool discussion.

I secure the free sample first before buying the full version. I believe it's like a free taste of something in the grocery. If it fits or if it tastes good, then we may buy it. The point here is that we need to give and take what is due to the authors and for us. Nothing compares to the full version though. Thanks

Hi friend, i agree, there is nothing wrong in downloading the free version, but you must buy the book if you are interested with it. but most of the persons are trying to get the full version for free and don't give importance to the author's hard work

If a person is rich, I guess there's no problem paying. However, for most people who are not able to spend extra money on ebooks, if they can get it for free, why not? Since the money save on e-boooks can be used to pay other things like bills or school fees. Also, most of the contents of the e-books are mostly available for free on the internet which is not really worth it to buy it.

charles, not all the ebook contents are available in internet, some books are unique. Recently i started to write ebooks and published 3 books, the sad thing is most of the persons downloading the free sample, hope some one get impressed with the sample and purchase my book in the near soon

Hi VP Personally I have never purchased Ebook, actually I not used to read anything from ebooks.. Reading whole book on computer is surely not that comfortable plus not good for eyes too. And about my reading habit, I am very lazy.. So its not like I have gone for free versions, I am not used to of reading ebooks.. So never experienced anything.

Anand, good to hear about this, so you are not very much interested in reading. I know you are writing articles in various sites, i think you are interested in writing than reading
