Do you prefer e-readers or physical copies of books?
Something every Booklr seems to have an opinion on is whether e-books or physical books are better. And I am no different. I have a very strong opinion on what type of books I want to read.
I absolutely love having the option to read books in print, and via my favorite e-reading device (which is usually my phone). My e-reader lets me take lots of books anywhere, and read in the dark. How could you say no to that? E-books are also amazing in their ability to allow me access to a book instantaneously. This is important for someone who lives just outside of a town that’s too small to have its post office anymore.
But print books will always hold a special place in my heart. I love the smell of them and the weight of a book in my hand. Plus, with the onset of e-readers, many book companies have started making more beautiful books. An e-book can never give me as much happiness as seeing a collection of leather-bound books on my shelves.
Then you get into issues of illustrated books, which should really only come in print. The affect of ink on a page is so different than seeing an illustration on screen. I like to be able to look at book illustrations for hours, finding the little details the artist has added.
Are you like me, preferring different books in different situations? Or do you like to stick to one type of book?
