If you start talking to someone about reading an ebook versus a hardcover/paperback, you will find that a spirited conversation has started. People have very strong feelings about their preferences. I rarely go anywhere without my Kindle which is my reading delivery method of choice. However, I have a great love of books and still enjoy holding a book in my hands when reading.
There are certainly reasons for both delivery methods. I have favorite authors; I've been buying their books for years. Since I started with hardcover or paperbacks, I still buy those to add to my collection. I have a great affection for those authors and thoroughly enjoy holding the books, viewing the cover, examining the binding if it's hardcover, and savoring the experience. Those are the books I want to immerse myself in so I can draw it out to make it last longer while also racing to the end because it's so good. They're also books that I will read more than once so I treasure them as I add them to my library.
However, my Kindle is almost an extension of me. I am a voracious, fast reader! I use my Kindle every single day, because I am always reading a book. I buy books that are reduced in price on BookBub to try new authors and love when I stumble on a new series or author. I'll read through the series before going to new material if I've fallen in love with the writing, characters, or premise. I also love the fact that I can read my Kindle in the dark. It's such a great bonus!
Since reading is such an important part of what I do on a daily basis, you will probably be hearing more about books in this blog.
