The sale of eBooks has risen exponentially in recent years and with the ongoing rise in sales of electronic reading devices, tablets and smartphones, one can only think that this trend is going to continue into the future.
In addition for the reader being able to 'one click' download their books, there is a considerable price incentive with most ebooks being no more, and very often even less than a third of normal retail price of the same book in hard copy. So you can see the attraction of ebooks and why there is going to be very strong growth in this market for many years to come as traditional hard copy book readers turn to this new and easier way of reading their favourite books.
Smashwords devote one week every year to promote ebook reading and call it 'Read an eBook Week' where many of their titles are available at large discounts and some even FREE.
