Would you be more likely to buy books from Eden if they were available for digital download in some manner? Why or why not?

I love holding a book. Plus with a book, you don't have to worry about battery power levels.

Honestly, Im not a huge book fan. I get some of their dvds for massages and what not, but nothing like porn or the erotica/books. I would probably prefer the hard copy though vs the digital download. If anything happens to my computer, least I have the hardcopy. I hate computer crashes lol

W/we have millions of ebooks because they take up space only on the computer - even in a large RV you can't have them pile up...

I love books, but I recieved a Kindle for Christmas. So... I put all my naughty books on the Kindle so they aren't lying out in the open.

I prefer real books but I do buy e-book when cheaper or they are hard to get in print.

I wouldn't only because I don't intend to invest in an ereader any time soon.

Sure; saving space on a bookshelf means I can have a lot more books at hand, so this would definitely work for me. I love my ereader.

I would love a digital version. Actually, I was searching for this before posting the same topic myself.

I prefer real books in my hands. Besides I don't have anything other than my laptop that could read a digital book.

I prefer real books, but I have so many that I'm trying to cut down my collection lol. If I had an e-reader, I'd buy my books from EF and download them on that instead.

My boyfriend got me a kindle for Valentine's Day a few years ago, and I love it to pieces. I take it everywhere with me and always have a variety of books to choose from.
On the other hand, I still love actual paper books. I love to smell them (I'm not weird, you guys know what I mean, right?) and hold them. And I love to read in the bathtub, which isn't really practical with an eReader.
Having said all that, when I find a book that I want to buy the main deciding factor is usually price. If I can get a paperback copy at the used bookstore for $1.50, I'm getting it. But if the Kindle edition is free, I'm going to get that one.
So in terms of buying books from the site, it would really just depend on the price. I would be more likely to get the digital editions of they were cheaper than the paper copies.

I prefer physical books, but maybe if they had short stories you could purchase individual as e-books then it might be tempting. If they were a lot cheaper that would also help.
