New life for used ebooks by Joe Wikert

Used Books by -Tripp-, on Flickr

  • I’ve got quite a few ebooks in two different accounts that I’ve read and will never read again. I’ll bet you do too. In the print world we’d pass those along to friends, resell them or donate them to the local library. Good luck doing any of those things with an ebook. Once you buy an ebook you’re pretty much stuck with it. That’s yet another reason why consumers want low ebook prices. They’re lacking some of the basic features of a print book so of course they should be lower-priced. I realize that’s not the only reason consumers want low ebook prices, but it’s definitely a contributing factor. I’d be willing to pay more for an ebook if I knew I could pass it along to someone else when I’m finished with it.
