It breaks my heart to spend ten or twenty bucks for books I can’t stack on my bedside table. I refuse to do it. It has to be a mighty special friend/author/story for me to spend more than $5.00 in the ebook world. Does that sound mean? Maybe so, and here’s more meanness from me. There was a time I didn’t place much value on book reviews--after all, we have our own personal taste when it comes to reading material. I’m sad to say now I do. If reviewers complain about typos, ramblings, bad grammar, plot holes, I pass on purchasing. If we’re going to put our books out there ourselves, we have a responsibility to do it right. And you can take that to the bank!
Do you own a Kindle or another book reading device? How do you feel about finding typos and poorly constructed sentences in your books? Do you want the author to put forth some effort to learn his/her craft? Does it really matter? Am I just being mean? Let me hear from you.
