Now that my poll on how many shops you've bought ebooks from has closed, I thought it would be interesting to run another, asking about recent purchases. For simplicity, let's look at books you bought in 2019. And I do mean bought - free ebooks don't count.

So - from how many different ebook stores did you buy ebooks in 2019?

I bought from six different stores:

Amazon (115)
Baen (13)
Google (1)
Humble Bundle (15 - one bundle)
Phoenix Pick (21)
Weightless Books (1)

More than I expected!

Four -
Mostly Amazon
Baen
Apple
B&N

I bought from Apple and B&N mostly to explore the stores. Apple had a several of book bundles that I liked and I bought a monthly bundle or two from Baen, plus one or two ARC's. I bought one book from B&N which taught me that I wouldn't be buying any more books from B&N. It was an older book that wasn't on Amazon any more. I suspect it's one of those situation where the contract expired and B&N simply never bothered to remove it.

Most from Amazon US
A few from Kobo
Quite a few from saxo.com. This is a Danish bookstore, the Danish books are watermarked epubs, they also have many books in English, they are ADE protected

In 2019, I got most of the books i read from the library. I'll have to figure out how many I did buy.

Smashwords and Amazon.
But I still buy on paper more often, though I read more eBooks than paper. I just found another big bunch I want to read on Gutenberg today and one ancient one as scanned PDF only on the wayback machine. May need to read it on a tablet.

I guessed eight, but it depends how you count ebooks from different authors' Patreons, SF magazines from different sources, that sort of thing.
