5 Things a Consumer Wants

A recent Chronicle article suggests that with the mainstreaming of e-books there should be more reader-friendly services such as the following:
  1. Let me subscribe to my favorite authors. 
  2. Keep books updated for one price.
  3. Buy a print copy, get an electronic copy too. 
  4. Give more of my money to authors.
  5. Indie bookstores should sell e-books. 
If I could pick one of the 5 myself, I would go with #3.  And if I were to add one to the list -- it would be, let me more easily lend or share my digital books.  My wife and I like to share books, but too often we are unable to do so with our ebooks -- unless we were to trade our devices.
