Feature & Follow Friday - Book Formats

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow
Happy Friday and welcome to Feature & Follow, hosted by Alison & Parajunkee. I hope you had a great week and are ready for the weekend.

Here's this week's question to ponder:

Hard print (real thing) or Kindle/Nook, which is your favorite? - Suggested by The Realm of Books.

I love to read. Any format. However I can get a book the quickest, that's what I'll do. Even audiobooks. I think each format has its advantages and drawbacks, so I work with what I have. Here's my rundown:

Hard Copy Books: It's easy to flip back to read something again or consult maps, etc. They can be heavy, especially when laying in bed reading. They take up more space. You don't have to worry about a battery running out, but you do have to worry about a light for reading in the dark. Most important feature to me: They smell good!

EBooks: They can  hurt your eyes if you don't have a really nice reading device. They are lightweight and compact. I can get many more ARCs in ebook form than print. You can pick out a book and start reading instantly -- no driving to the store or library. You can take notes without "writing" in the book. Also, no one can tell what you are reading. Most important feature to me: There's a dictionary!

If it were up to me, I'd never have a world without both of these formats being available. What do you think? Leave me a link. Thanks for visiting and come back soon!

  2. Awesome books smell awesome! *g*

    I find myself gravitating more to my Kindle, than my physical books (only at the moment), because I discovered something about myself within the last couple of months that surprised me. I'm willing to take a few more changes with my Kindle reads, because it's a bit cheaper and I don't mind branching out in my reading and finding new-to-me author's/books that I normally wouldn't give a second glance if I were to see them in physical. Does that sound awful, I hope no because I don't want to be a book snob.

    Happy Reading and Hopping Through! :)

  3. I've come to the conclusion that I need them both in my world. I'll never give up the emotional attachment to a physical book. I need them like I need air. And my Kindle is so convenient for all of the reasons you mentioned.
