This Week’s Question:
And now, for question #2…
What do you think about e-books? Do you engage in e-reading or do you prefer to stick to good ol’ physical books?
I had wanted an EReader for awhile, even before finding this neighborhood of book blogging/reviewing. And around November/December we found out that I needed another back surgery, hubby felt so bad that he bought me one. He is a Sony fan so he ordered the Sony EReader. At first it was a little hard getting used to but I learned quickly. It was so much easier and less cumbersome taking it where I went compared to a PB/HC, easier holding it while reading in bed. Other pluses, in my opinion, are the prices of EBooks and the fact that we live in a world of “instant” technology. If I see great reviews from many bloggers, I just open the EReader and within seconds, have the book. The only thing I don’t like, if I am reading a really good can’t put down book, the battery needs to be recharged often. However, I do like the smell of a new book, the noise of turning a page, the look of books in a bookcase. So as of today I would have to say that I am a 50/50.
