Unfortunately, it seems that most people get more excited for the latest and greatest one-trick-wonder than a solid book with dozens of proven effects. Not necessarily the best people, but most..

Buying books has always been a no-brainer to me (and I believe most logical people). I don’t even look at most of the single effects that are released because 95% of them are forgotten within a year. Good books are beautiful, well-crafted, and full of an experienced magician’s distilled thoughts and effects. That’s why we must support the publishing of magic books as much as possible!

That is true but when I saw they also vote for magic app in trick of the year, I thought this thread might as well also vote for e-books. In other words, I thought it is not lively because it decides Book of the Year without e-books.

I didn't notice. I seem to have skipped it. I'm so sorry.

Oh, no problem, it was easy to miss. I think many may have missed it since I don't think there's been an ebook nomination yet.
