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!
