Thursday Thoughts || eReaders
Now, one question that I posed in the prompt this week was "Do you prefer eReaders or physical books?" For me, that's an incredibly easy question. I, by far, prefer physical books. Although, I can see the good in each medium of reading, I will choose physical books each and every time. There are a few different reasons for that. I think a lot of people say they prefer physical books because they like holding a book, feeling the book and even smelling the book. I can see why people would say that and I do agree, but those things aren't as important to me. That is to say, I think I could probably live without them. But, I prefer physical books because it's just what I enjoy reading more! I think reading on an eReader frustrates me sometimes. I like being able to see how many pages I've read and how many I have left rather than reading a percentage. Not to mention that when you read on an eReader you don't even really know how many pages you've actually read.
However, as much as I prefer physical books, there are some amazing things about eReaders. eReaders have definitely changed the face of reading. You can carry around an entire library with you to the coffee shop and not have to worry about having too much to hold. At the click of a button, you can have drastically cheap copies of any book you could imagine right at your finger tips. There's no denying the awesomeness that are eReaders. Because of all those infinitely good things that eReaders can do for the avid reader, I feel like anyone who wants one should definitely invest in purchasing one. They will make a major change in your reading habits and I am positive you will not regret it if you purchase one.
I know this was a short Thursday Thoughts, but I've been totally wrapped up in Bout of Books. If you don't know what the Bout of Books read-a-thon is, I highly suggest you check the most recent post (before this one) on my blog. It'll tell you everything you need to know. Thanks for joining us for this week of Thursday Thoughts! If you didn't make your own post, feel free to comment and let everyone know what you think! eReaders? Love 'em or lose 'em? Let me know!
