Paperbacks are special

The other day “Paperback Writer” by the Beatles came on on my phone. As far as I know, there’s no “eBook Writer” out there. And, as much as I love reading novels as an eBook (I still prefer printed for reading academic materials), there’s still something special about paperbacks. I don’t know what it is; is it just the feel of it? That it seems more permanent? I really don’t know.

Anyway, now, I’ve got my paperback copy of my latest novel, Tokyo 20/20 Vision. It makes the book feel so much more real, although the eBook has been out for a few weeks now. After using a different publisher for my first novel Hijacking Japan and the book Osutaka, this time everything is being done via Amazon. Although this restricts where people can get the book from, it’s certainly made everything easier from my side of things. Hopefully those who would like to get a copy of the book will be able to do so.
