Sunday Confessions April 3, 2011
This is a weekly meme started by yours truly as a way to get to share a bit about myself and also learning more about you. Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate.
This week's question:
Which do you prefer, a physical book or an e-reader ?
When the e-readers first came out I remember thinking to myself 'who would want to read a book on that?' It's true, I prejudged the e-readers. As time went on, I heard a lot of positive things about them. Then my brother-in-law bought one. I asked him a bunch of questions and played around with the e-reader and realized it was not as bad as I originally thought. This is when I decided that I wanted one for myself. I did some research and found the one that was best for me. Then I did what any person would do and put it on my Christmas list. I love my Kindle. I named it 'The Precious' and I say it in a Gollum type voice. I love that you can store lots of books on it. It's lightweight and easy to use. However as much as I love my Kindle it does not compare to an actual book. There is something so magical about opening a book and getting lost in the pages. I love turning pages! I also love looking at book covers. I know with the e-readers you can view the covers but it's not the same as an actual book cover. There are many advantages to an e-reader but for me I prefer an actual book to the e-book. So what about you? Do you have a preference?
