I am writing as an author addressing cherished readers, to ask you to buy some of my paperbacks.
As an author, I would like my works to survive rather than disappear with the digital dark ages. I'd love for you to have your copies of these books to at least potentially survive for the rest of your life and long after. Kindles won't do that.
I am tring to set up all of my books as Matchbook for free. What this means is that if you pay a bit extra and buy one of my paperback books, I'm basically throwing in the Kindle copy for your commuter survival kit free.
