J.K. Rowling Loves eBooks

J.K. Rowling, author of the famed Harry Potter series, was interviewed in this month’s edition of Words with Jam. There was no mention on when she plans to release the Harry Potter series as eBooks, but she did talk about the wonders of eBooks.

In response to a question titled eBooks – Genesis or Nemesis?, she replied that she loved the smell and feel of a paper book, but there are times where eBooks are valuable:

However, there are times when e-books are a Godsend. We forgot to pack my youngest a bedtime book when we were away last year, and I truly appreciated the magic of being able to download one in seconds! This summer will be the first that I take away 50 e-books to read while on holiday, rather than filling up my suitcase with print books.
