Reading... Real books or ereaders

Postby Storiestoshare » Thu Feb 13, 2014 9:42 am

Having spent the whole day on Monday sorting out my books and building new bookcases to hold them it made me wonder if other people still enjoy actually reading a book as opposed to reading on an ereader.

I have hundreds of books, aswell as loads of ebooks on by phone and iPad, and can see the appeal with ereaders for example I can read in bed at night without disturbing my husband with my bedside lamp, but I still prefer reading pro per books and seem to not be able to stop myself from buying more despite the fact that my bookcases are already full to bursting!

I like the variety of ebooks I can get on my ipad, but I'm filling it up too quickly with my TBR list.
Then again I have shelves of actual books waiting to be read too!

I tend to try a book as an ebook, and then end up buying it too in paperback as I want the physical book for my collection!

It's funny every time I pick u a real book, I end up dozing off pretty quickly. Probably the schedule is a little too hectic, plus the reading material is usually dry, technical manuals and how to books. Ebooks are nice because I can read at work without lugging books around that may get damaged. I just pop the ebook open on my breaks and read away.

Definitely helps me keep consistent on reading too.
