When it comes to buying books people tend to just stick with they know. Why change? If it works don’t try and fix it right? Well the problem with this sort of attitude is that you could easily be missing out on a far more enjoyable experience. Buying books online has changed since ten years ago, so why not try something new.
Compare. Most top quality online bookstores now offer the option to compare all the top online brands at your whim to see which can supply you the book cheapest, all from within the same page. How great is that! No need to open hundreds of windows on each different website or phoning up all your local bookstores, just click one button and you immediately know who is cheapest.
Book and store reviews. This is where buying online really cangura comes into its own. Sure you can always read the occasional review in your local paper but what are the chances that this review is going to be the book you just so happen to want to read next? There are millions of books out there! And when it comes to store reviews all you’ve probably heard is negativity from your friends when there book arrives a few days late, that’s not an objective review that’s just angst. Buying online puts hundreds of these reviews all into one place, allowing you to make a clear concise opinion of your own. And once you’ve finished that read or enjoyed that stores experience you can publish your own feelings to help out other buyers!
Convenience. Now I know what you’re thinking. You could easily get in your car, drive to your local town centre, park up, walk to the bookstore, buy your book come home and that’s it, you’ve got it all within a few hours. Well yes, but how often do you have a spare afternoon to go buy a book? I know I certainly don’t.
Bookstores online are now so efficient you will usually receive your order the next day. Save yourself an afternoon and get it delivered to your door tomorrow.
Social experience. Book clubs are no longer the playing ground of the middle age and middle class. A few top class bookstores are now offering the chance to actually social network with other book readers. This means you can form your own online book clubs, make friends, send messages and chat about books to your heart’s content.
