How Many Formats?

I admit I’m somewhat old-fashioned.  I’ve been writing for a long time, and when I started there weren’t nearly as many formats for books to be published in as there are today. 

But this is so fun!  Whatever way you want to “read” a book, there are probably some titles out there in whatever format(s) you choose.  And I’ll also admit in advance that I’m sure there are a lot of options that I’m not familiar with.

Let’s start with print.  There have been different types of print books for quite a while, including hardback, trade paperback, and mass market paperback.

And now there are also e-books in several different formats, depending on the e-reader you use: Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBooks, and more.

So… there are many different ways to use your eyes to read.  But you can use another sense, too–hearing.  Audio books!  I’m in the process now of having a couple of books in my Barkery & Biscuits Mystery Series made into audio books.  Looking forward to it!

Another possibility, of course, is Braille, which I assume is only used by the blind or perhaps also those with poor eyesight.  And yes, people who use Braille do use a different sense: touch.

Those are the main ways of enjoying a book that I know of.  Anyone want to educate me on something else? 

And, yes, enjoy what you read no matter what way you do it!
