Question for Authors
I tend to buy books from Smashwords rather than Amazon when they are available at both. This is because of the choice of formats - before I got my kindle I used ( and still do) my nintendo dsi xl. So I can download books either as epub or mobi. Also, and in the future it could be important - if for any reason I no longer have a kindle, I will still be able to access my books. I keep all downloaded books from Smashwords and other sites on a portable drive and as far as I am concerned they are mine to keep. I am not at all thrilled at the idea of spending a lot of money in months / years to come and finding it all wasted if I no longer have a kindle.
