I buy ebooks. I do not buy hardcover or softcover books anymore. If an author does not have their work published as ebooks, I write the publisher and/or the author and request that they consider it. What infuriates me about Rowling's insistence not to have her work digitalized is her reasoning - she is afraid of theft, but only because she herself is a thief. She left her husband, went on welfare and was able to realize her dream of becoming an author. How nice for her. How many would-be successful writers have to actually work for a living and never get the chance to fully realize their ambition? I don't justify piracy, but I do justify giving hypocrites whatever they deserve.
