EReader Vs. Paperback.

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?

Teaser Tuesday: Down London Road – Samantha Young

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser

“Guess who was at the bar last night?”
I’ve always been crap at guessing games. “Who?”
“Hot guy from the shitty art show.”

And that, ladies and gentlemen is all I can share so far!!

In my mailbox #1

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, in which book bloggers post about the books they’ve bought, borrowed or received in the past week.

It’s my first time doing this meme, so here it goes.

This week I received:

Down London Road – Samantha Young (paperback)
Was waaay too excited to see this in my postbox and to flick through the pages. Can’t wait to start reading it.

Holding On – Emma Hart (EArc)
I love Emma and I love her books. Was sooo excited to recieve Holding on (#1.5 memories). More Lexi, Alec, Bing and Jen to tide me over until Always Remember is out!

I’ve bought:

Damaged – H.M Ward.LOVE teacher/student relatioships. Just had to download it.

Twisted Summer – Lucy Morgan.
It just sounded so good even though she gets it on with her step-uncle. I’m a bit weird.

Picture Perfect – Alessandara Thomas
I loved the synopsis!
