E-books or books?
Lorshi #questionnaire #e-book
Just read I say.
Why not both?♀️
Both! Books are my favorite, but I’ll read ebooks for convenience and saving money!
Hardcover books. Looks great on my bookshelves.
BOTH I love a real book, definitely prefer it, but ebooks are so nice to read at night without waking my husband
Exactly! Plus then I can read in the shower or if I’m tired and want the light off ♥️
E-books! The only way I can fit in so much reading is because of the convenience of an e-reader. I read while folding laundry, putting up the dishes, walking on the treadmill, in bed every night…no way could I do that with a physical book. Plus my toddler can’t ruin the pages of an e-reader like she can a physical book. ???
This is all that I wanted to say. I agree completely!
Both. But ebooks are cheaper and frankly I’m running out of room.
They are exactly the same.
My bookshelves say different ?
I have nearly 3,000 books and about the same number of ebooks. It’s the story that matters.
Books even though I have a kindle fire and the kindle app on my phone I still prefer the feel of a book in my hand
Love everything about a book: feel, smell, looking for books at the library or store. Electronics especially computer bothers my eyes and gives me a headache after awhile
Love my kindle.
eBooks are books. That said, I like both ebooks and physical books.
Physical books. I think it’s a great feeling holding them in your hands. Also, I don’t know what it is but something about looking at them makes me happy
I will always prefer a hardback, or paperback.
I vastly prefer books but I have a Kindle because I travel A LOT and I’ve been living abroad in various countries since 2015. Until I settle down in a city, I can’t buy more than several books a year.
STOP THIS BS! God I’m tired of this. How many times r we having this discussion??
Both more options that way , always got something to read
i agree with roxie whats the difference just read don;t think it to death it should be enjoyable
Is it a rule that someone must ask this question at least once a week in this group?
books — nothing beats the smell & feel of one!
Both depends on situations ?
Even though my novel is published as an ebook, I don’t personally consider an ebook to be a book. Emotionally it’s more of a Xerox of a book, a facsimile of a book. Yet that’s what so many people read today, so I felt it had to have it come out that way and my future pubs will come out that way too. Personally I have some that are for reference, and they’re great for travel guides or whatever—you can take a lot of info with you wherever you’re going without having to pack books in a suitcase—but for pleasure reading I must have paper.
A side note: Several years ago, when ereaders were relatively new, I saw everyone reading them. I see a lot of these same people now, in coffee shops, for example, and now they’re reading paper books again. I ask about their ereaders and they say they got tired of them, or didn’t enjoy books as much on them. That’s largely how I felt from day one.
It’s gotta be both. Kindles are great for travelling and night time reading. And when the real book is as big as a housebrick!
Ohhhhh Good grief :/
The physical book always win, but sometimes you dont have much choices, so my answer is whatever’s accessible
Both – large books easier for me on Kindle
Definitely e-books after watching the new Fahrenheit 451 movie
Books all the way. I have to be able to touch and smell the book.
I just finished an e-book on my tablet but I’ve got two more on there and four books on my coffee table at the moment. I’ll be listening to an audiobook on my tablet soon as well. I like to give my eyes a rest so I switch to the audiobook occasionally so my brain can continue to fire up my imagination. I prefer actual books but I love e-books and audiobooks as well.
Books books and books ?
Both….and that took me a long time to say lol…audio also
Both. And audiobooks.
Books even though ebooks are more convenient and easier to hold.
ebooks. I’ve read two paper books in 9 years. I love ebooks.
Books are books no matter the format.
There is no “OR” they are all books
Both prefer book
It depends. Sometimes if it’s a book there isn’t much info on or a new author I’ll buy the EBook since they are usually cheaper. If it a series that I love and an author that I like a lot, I’ll invest in hardcover or softcover.
Ebooks: the maximum of temptation (armchair library access and shopping online) and the minimum of others realizing just how many books you really have and declaring you insane.
You asked this question as if they are not the same thing. Why must you all be this way? Why ?
Books!! Only ebooks if I cant get the real thing
? ? ? BOOKS????? and more books ? ? ?
I like my ebooks
Words are words where ever they are …but I do like a good book.
