Ebook? That's so boring.

I sometimes smile when I see how food companies label their products to keep up
with the latest health fad. Even foods that don't need the label. Like, "o% cholesterol
water" and "non-fat brown sugar". Well those items are NOT suppose to contain that
stuff in the first place.

So how can you describe your ebook product to an environmentally conscious
market? I just ran into this one: "an ecologically-responsible instant download"

          I've seen that one too. Got a chuckle out if it.

          I was flipping through the Sunday coupon section, and found an ad for gluten-free olive oil.

    Download the book instantly as an ebook. It saves you the trouble of recycling it when you find out it sucks.

    It is way easier to move electrons on a wire... than paper on an avenue. Think of the cost of sending a voluminous hard cover physical book to a location thousands of miles away. Not only is a digital download faster, but you can do so at a much lower price.

    That said, e-books are great for people with speech impediments. For example, I was on udemy just now. I was taking an internet marketing course. The instructor said. "Get FWEE TWAFFIC on yoooo toooob." I had to stop the course. It was just too funny!

    Ok, I have to tell you.

    Last night I was in the grocery store and was looking in the icecream area for a final sweet before resuming diet plan.

    There was some kind of icecream sandwich, low fat or something. The product makers had put legs and a head coming out of the icecream sandwich on the box picture so it looked like a bug of some kind. Then there was a blurb coming out of the icecream sandwich bugs mouth, "My legs look thinner already!" or something of that nature.

    I was seriously shocked.

    It wasn't any well known brand or anything either - just the store brand.

      I was reading a diet site this week - high protein, high fat, low carb, low sugar - and the doctor described beer as

      "liquid bread"
