eBooks vs. Real Books

One of the questions readers are usually asked is: “eBooks or real books?” Hence the title. Some people prefer real books, because you can actually feel the pages underneath your fingers. Others prefer eBooks because they’re more efficient, and you can take them just about anywhere, turning the pages with a quick flick.

I actually prefer real books, because I have so much more fun shopping for them. I just feel so satisfied whenever I go to Barnes and Noble, or log onto my Amazon account, because I know that I’ll have actual books to hold in my hands, and to smell, and to caress. (Of course I caress my books, what else is there to do, read them? 😉 )

Anyway, I do love ordering books online, because I find great satisfaction in getting a package in the mail. I mean, it’s rare that I get mail, but when I do? Oh, yes.

But there’s also the fact that I do have eBooks on my Kindle. I read the first three books of The Selection series by Kiera Cass, and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell on my Kindle, and I absolutely loved them. The only thing about reading eBooks is that I do end  up actually buying the real books later, which is a great example of wasting your money! If you read my Impromptu Book Haul, you’d know that I did just buy the first three books of The Selection series on Tuesday.

Thank you so much for reading! Comment below which you prefer!

Until next time,

  1. I prefer physical books too- there’s just something so comforting about having the actual book in your hands. I also find that books a lot more sentimental, I love being able to just take a book off my shelf and think about the happy memories it’s given me! I recently bought a Kindle and I’m definitely seeing why so many people love having one. Although, if a book has a beautiful cover or it’s a one from my favourite author or series then buying the actual physical copy is a must!

    1. I do completely agree. How attractive a book is weighs in as a factor for whether or not I will purchase the eBook or a physical copy.
