Speedy delivery? A teacher bought one of my books last night at 10 pm wanting to use a poem for a 9 am class. It was delivered immediately. She is using it as one would use a blackboard. Pages can be turned by the touch of a finger on the screen. Electronic landfill: We are filling our bins on an hourly basis with paper that is being wasted at an alarming rate from all manner of things that don't need to be packaged and advertising material stuffed through our letterboxes. Old books are circulating from one Christmas bazaar to the next and often they are still there being offered for sale at the Summer garden parties as people are downsizing, and the next generation don't want them. Mass classroom readings? Children read from vdu screens in the same way we have always read from blackboards in the past. No difference. When the teacher wants to pinpoint one thing on the page, it is easy for everyone to see it when it is pointed to on a vdu screen. I'm encouraging teachers to let children perform and record poems in many ways, and then link their performance to the website, which, like television, is a world stage. Teachers can gain ideas from others in this way for their own classroom performances. Film can be linked with poetry, animated games and much more. No, the electronic conveyance of literature is here to stay, so say the younger generation and I also. On the subject of the author selling an Ebook, there are no overheads. An author, selling an e-book from their own website, receives 100% for the work they've done. Printers, publishers, shop-keepers etc take huge amounts in the case of printed books. The author keeps their copyright when they self-publish. Publishers take this away all too often, which isn't right. I think many authors are exploited. All too often we forget this when we handle a printed book. I think the tide has turned for many authors thank goodness and this is the other side of the coin.
