Having an eBook signed is a discussion point that has evolved with the popularity of eBooks. Traditionally, authors would have book signings and meet with their reader base. Now, with the advent of the eBook, are book signings obsolete? Authors are now doing virtual book release parties through social networking sites. Some authors are also doing virtual book signings, streaming online to various book store sites and / or online sites. Would you rather have your picture taken with your favorite author, or get his or her autograph? That is another debate that has come about. Some authors are attending book “signings” for their readers who purchased their eBooks and readers are then getting photos taken with the authors.
What are your thoughts on this issue? Are you a fan of the eBook? Do think that paper/hardback books will become obsolete?
