A Suggestion for Amazon - Hear It Here First!

A friend has been recommending this book for quite some time, and, browsing a bookstore yesterday, I spotted it.  I'm hoping to start it this weekend.

I LOVE books. I worked in bookstores for over 19 years, until the chain closed several years ago. I currently work at a publishing company (going on 13 years now).  I have oodles and piles of books in every room of my house.  I love the feel and smell and weight of a book in my hand.  But I also love eBooks - they are handy things to have at doctor appointments and such.  Yes, I know I can carry a book in my purse.... but I dislike carrying purses.  My phone, however, is always at my side.

So, my point?  I think should take a page from the movie industry.  I think when you buy a book you should be able to pay an extra bob or two for an electronic code.  Like movies, where you can purchase the DVD and a digital download, I think with books you should be able to get the best of both worlds, too.

That way, when I'm stuck in line waiting to buy a hot cocoa and my book is sitting in my bag in the car, I can pick up my phone and continue reading where I left off.

You heard it here first.
