Printed books are become obsolete, so if you’re tight on a budget, which version should you choose? Personally, I still like printed books because it’s something tangible you can hold in your hand and I still find it easier to read a physical book than a book via a digital screen.
However, e-books are cheaper to produce and more accessible to your readers if you plan on distributing it globally. As such, if you were only choosing one, then you should go with e-books. Plus, as an indie author, it’s best you don’t price your books too high or people will not purchase it. E-books can be priced cheaper because you save on printing and delivery fees. Sometimes, it’s not about what you prefer, but what matches your market.
