Electronic Reader or Real Books

Shortest blog ever . .

Mini-survey, how do you prefer to read? A physcial book (printed on paper), or an e-book, or both?

I have both but haven't downloaded any books. Not sure if I'm afraid to move into new technology or not.

  1. Both. I'm not willing to give up on my paperbacks. I'm still buying many of my must read authors in paperback. But, I didn't have any hesitation to start loading books on my Kindle once I got it. I have books in seconds (since I live overseas, I can't express enough what a huge deal this is). Kindle also offers books for free on a regular basis and it's a great way to discover authors I had never heard of before. Will I eventually switch over to all Kindle? I don't think so, but I really don't know.

  2. I use both. Love physical books, especially for bath time. But nothing beats the practicality of the ereader.

  3. I prefer books. I tend to be tactile. I love the feel of a book. There is nothing better (other than...ahem...you know) than curling up with a good book and getting lost in the experience.

  4. Hi Gabriella, I think I'm in the same boat. Although I did hear the other day that Amazon said e-books out sold print for the first time in May.

  5. Rosalie, I've lost two things I love in the last couple years. Baths and reading. I have to tale off my glasses (they steam up) and can't see the small print without 'em. Not fair!

  6. Dawn, I saw a woman reading a book in the mall yesterday and that reminded me of flying. If you have an electronic reader, you have to turn it off on take-off and landings. For me that makes those times very boring.

  8. Thanks for commenting, Felinewyvern. I'll be doing more print reading than e-reading from here on out because my Kindle just ran out of juice and I've lost my power thingie for charging. Grrrr. It was eaten by my closet.
