E-books...They're Getting There
E-book format is improving, but it still has a ways to go.
Most of the e-books I buy now have linked tables of contents. Thank you! That makes going back to find something much easier than the gazillion page-turning clicks one had to do before. A few even have the back cover blurb included somewhere near the beginning. Yay. Finally!
I don't know about you, but I have a HUGE backlog of books waiting TBR. By the time I get around to some of them, I've forgotten what the story is about.
Even if I haven't, I like to read the blurb to orient myself before proceeding to chapter one. If the e-book doesn't contain some kind of story description, I have to activate my Kindle's wireless and go to the book's page on Amazon to read it—not fun (or fast) when you're deciding among several books.
What features do you like in e-books?
Are there any you'd like to see added?
Are there any you feel are a waste?
