We’re entering the Brave New World. Well some of us are entering it kicking and screaming. I decided I wanted to ask people where they rent or purchase their movies and books after I learned my daughter was getting her movies through Netflix via her Wii!!! Remember going to Blockbuster? Apparently, that’s passe’. My husband and I have been known to rent via our cable company through our television although I think we pay a bit much for that convenience – $4.99. Our latest movie rental was made through Redbox – for a buck. The only catch is you really do have to return it the next day.
Books (hard copies) I often buy online via Amazon or Barnes & Noble. My local Barnes & Noble doesn’t carry series romance (LOUD SCREAMING), so I usually purchase my series books at Target or Wal-mart.
I haven’t gotten an e-reader get because I want a tablet so I can buy from any place I want. I know that Harlequin authors can get a higher royalty rate through ebooks purchased on the eharlequin site. And there are sites such as smashwords about which I know little. Although, I just heard my talented friend Elizabeth Bevarly is giving away MY MAN PENDLETON http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/70627 on that site. FREE! Almost makes me want to run out and get an e-reader. But I’m determined to hold out for that tablet.
So, where do you get yours? Your movies? Your books? Your ebooks? I’d love to know!
