E BOOKS: WHY CAN’T WRITERS READ?

WHY CAN’T WRITERS READ?

The title above is not meant to imply that writers can’t read (although some were notoriously bad), but writers reading their own works (or the work of others) is an important enhancement to an e-book.
These, of course, are not the only writers who have been recorded reading, but they are here to emphasize the added value of an enhanced e-book, the e+ , over the static e-books published now. After hearing/seeing the clips below, you may well wonder how you could have ever read a book, without hearing/seeing the author read his or her own work.
