Hi guys, how are you all? Since I haven’t done a discussion post for a while, I thought it was about time to I did another one. I wanted to chat with you guys about physical books and e-books. Which one do you guys prefer? I have always preferred physical books, but over the years I’ve definitely come to see the use of e-books.
For me, I just love the feel of a physical book – I like reading from them. When I was younger e-readers weren’t a thing, so physical books were what we had, if that makes sense. I think it’s also important to support local book shops and that means buying physical books :). I’m pretty sure I will always prefer physical books – they are just nicer. Having said that there are some perks to e-books. I remember the days going on holiday before having a kindle and my bag would be heavy with books. I remember taking Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling and it took up most of my bag – I still finished all of my books and we had to find a English book shop to find some more. Basically the kindle or any e-reader is fantastic when you are going away as it means you can take plenty of reading material in a small tablet. It can also be quite good when you have a very heavy/long book as big books can be quite awkward to read. Another use I’ve found is the ability to get books through Negalley on my kindle. As a book blogger, I basically read alot and to make sure I’ve got new content it’s important to me to read new books and releases. Netgalley allows me to do that, without completely breaking my bank account. So my kindle is really useful in that way. There are definitely pros and cons for both.
Overall I will always choose physical books over e-books, but as I’ve mentioned I can definitely see the pros and cons of both. I’m interested to know what you guys think – do you prefer physical books or e-books? Do you have particular reasons for that preference? Let’s discuss :). I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
