There are other reasons…because of the special nature of the book (poker tournament strategies), the market for same would be…small (this isn’t something you’d expect to see in a mass-market publication from Random House). The expense (to me) to get it published in PAPER would be considerable, provided I actually COULD get it published. Not to diss my own writing skills, but this isn’t the first book I’ve written. It IS the first one to see the light of day by being published, however.
In fact, I plan to take portions of that unpublished tome (on gambling) and publish them (updated, of course) as eBooks. And that’s another advantage of eBooks - they can be updated! Ain’t technology grand?
Now I still don’t own a device, but I have equipped my computer with the Kindle for PC, and I’ve downloaded a few books to “get the hang” of reading this way. You can teach an old dog, etc. etc.
