    Hard copy or Kindle Books?

    When compiling your Amazon listing on a new hub, do you typically include Kindle books for their popularity or do you only list hard/soft cover books in hopes of increasing your revenue from Amazon?

    When I write a book review, I list the version that I read. Sometimes, when put into e-book format, things go really wonky. There can be lots of formatting errors or sometimes the version that's transferred isn't even the completely finished product. I just did a book review on my other HubPages account and listed both the Kindle version and the "real" book. Not everybody that reads e-books has a Kindle - though you don't have to have one to read e-books from Amazon.

    Hard copies. I much prefer hard copies of books myself anyway, and so I just tend to go with what I prefer.

    Sometimes authors offer their book for free on Kindle. That's when I read the Kindle version. However, if I have to pay for the book, I will always choose the hard copy. Always. There is something about reading a paper book.

    Using that logic, I have listed the hard copy of the book when I write a hub or a post for my blog.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts Chad.  I too love to physically hold a book.  There's a depth there that is missing with the electronic books.  Perhaps it's the mystery of whose hands have held the book.  I don't really know but I know it's real.
