Before being traditionally published (and even after) I couldn’t stop going to a bookstore.

Now that I have gone the indie route I can’t find myself going to one.  In fact, I walk past several on my way to work and I have NO interest in checking out any of the books.  It’s as if the bookstores represent the past and e-books are the future.

I only realized it when a friend pointed this out to me.

I"ve only been to my beloved Powell's once in the last six months. It's weird.

I still buy books at a bookstore fairly regularly, but for particular reasons (when I need a hard copy for work). When I read genre fiction for entertainment, I've moved almost exclusive (but not quite) to stuff on the Kindle.

Books are too expensive. Hardback and quality paperback are priced way too high. Mass market at $7.99 is as high as I will go, but when I can buy ebooks for a lot less than that, why shouldn't I?
Yeah, I'll occasionally go to a bookstore to browse around, but I just can't afford books anymore.
