The only thing I dislike is that I can only loan a book one time on my kindle and no more! I don't believe that is fair if I've paid money for it. With print book prices being higher than e-books, in most cases, surely the word of mouth is also a marketing tool for an author. I often purchase books loaned to me by others for my own enjoyment. Also if I like an author I will watch for future books from them too. Isn't that something an author can appreciate in revenues? Those books offered without DRM are more easily loaned out & often try to find this type of e-book. something that will ultimately profit the author in future profits. Good reading to all!
