I pose this question, EReader or Paperback?
I know its a simple question but I’m intrigued as to how many people prefer their EReader, or how many people still enjoy their paperbacks?
I used to spend so much money on Paperbacks. All my money went on them and when I used to go to supermarkets and see ‘3 books for £7’ and other book offers, well, i would spend at least half an hour going through every book and reading the synopsis until i picked the right three and even then the following week i would pick up the next three that i didn’t buy the week before.
But then when I received a Kindle for Christmas a few years ago, it was like the most amazing present ever. I could now download books at the click of a button, have them all in one place, spend less on them as Ebooks are considerably cheaper which in turn meant i could buy more and of course, meant i could buy so many at one time and buy at least like 20 ebooks for £10 instead of 3 paperbacks.
My kindle is my baby. I don’t go anywhere without it, and if i have to leave it behind, I have the Kindle App on my phone.
I hardly ever buy paperback books anymore. The only reason I do is if I fell completely and hopelessly in love with the Ebook so much so that i need it in paperback form.
The last paperback I bought was Walking Disaster – Jamie McGuire so it was with its companion Beautiful Disaster. The next paperback books I hope to buy are Hopeless – Colleen Hoover and The Edge Of Never – J.A Redmerski when they come out in the UK.
I also have On Dublin Street and Down London Road – Samantha Young and Down To You and Up To Me – M. Leighton.
I ADORE these books and so i had to have them in paperback form, but that’s it.
My nan also buys me books for Christmas and that’s the only other time i receive paperbacks.
My Kindle is a godsend. It’s given me new authors and books to love and new friends because of these authors. Indie authors dominate the kindle world and i am so freaking glad because they are the best. Hands down the best.
So now i pose the questions again – Ebooks or Paperback?
