E-Books or Print books? You decide…

I am proud to be a member of the Pfoxmoor Publishing Family.

 

“The Tower and The Eye” Novella series was picked up by them early this year and hopefully the first book in the series will be published at the beginning of 2012 under their Pfoxchase Imprint.

 

…Yes, I know it’s a long time to wait.

 

But, while you’re waiting, Pfoxmoor has a lot of brilliant books that you can read. They’re all available in e-format and some of them are available in print as well – I seriously recommend getting the books in print if you enjoy them in e-format…

 

Why?

 

An e-reader is a wonderful device, it allows you to read anywhere you like, doesn’t go soggy in the rain and you can store hundreds of books on it. Perfect for someone like me who likes to read many different books and genres.

 

But…

 

Print books have more to them than just the story. There is a whole sensory experience to reading a print book that an e-reader just doesn’t have. There’s the feel of the paper; smooth in some books, rough in others.

For me it brings back memories of sitting in the school library at break times, going through the boxes of new books (I was a Library Monitor at school) and checking the pages and adding the school stamp.

 

There’s the smell that books have as well. Brand new books have that sharp, fresh ink smell; second hand or books that you haven’t read for a while have a tangy, soft scent that always reminds me of winter evenings snuggled up with a mug of Horlicks.

 

Everyone has their favourite places to read. In the winter I snuggle up in a fleecy, furry throw with my Horlicks. In the summer, I pull out a garden chair, put my hat on and take in a little vitamin D while I catch up on the adventures of my favourite characters.

 

Of course, both e-readers and books are good for the summer, but e-readers often have a problem with bright sunlight, which is where the print book has the edge, but bright sunlight fades ink, which is where e-readers are better than print.

 

Anyway, back to Pfoxmoor.

 

 

You’ll find a whole slew of different books being brought out by them. The YA books come out through Pfoxmoor and Adult books are brought out through the Pfoxchase Imprint.

 

You’ll find a new section to my website going up shortly, introducing you to all the Pfoxmoor / Pfoxchase books and featuring a review of the book in question. There will also be links to the various places you can buy them (and believe me they are everywhere) and if you want to, you can leave your own comments and reviews in the comments section on each page.

 

Pfoxmoor has something for everyone and I’m sure that you’ll find a book that you will want to read…
