#eBooksOrPhysicalBooks

discussion

Today’s discussion is all about eBooks and physical books and what I prefer.  Some of you may ask about audiobooks but seeing as I haven’t had the greatest experience with them they will not be included in this discussion.  If you would like to know about my experience with audiobooks you can private message me on twitter or email me!

For the longest time, I was against eReaders and reading digitally.  However, last year I decided that I wanted to buy an eReader.  I researched and decided on getting a Nook over a Kindle.  My preferred retailer for books has always been Barnes and Noble, and they offer free lifetime in-store support.  I absolutely love my Nook, and I’m so happy that I finally bought an eReader.

If you were to ask me if I prefer eBooks to physical books, I would say it is a 50/50 split and I love them both equally.  There is something special about holding a book in my hand and turning the pages.  I know this is gonna sound weird, but I love the way books smell, especially if they are older books.  The thing that I love about my Nook, is the fact that it is more portable and weighs less than regular books.  I also love the fact that if I have WiFi access, I can browse the eBook catalogs of my libraries and put books on hold or borrow them, and lately, I have been borrowing more books than buying them!

What is your take on eBooks and physical books? I would love to hear your thoughts?
