Books or Kindle?

  • Posted by Raphael_Fantasy_Writer on January 16, 2024 at 1:21 pm

    I have a question for you guys.

    I recently bought and Ereader (a Kobo Nia, if you want to know) and It’s been my best purchase in years (I’m young so don’t be surprised)

    It’s extremely handy to read on the go and instead of keeping checking how long is left in each chapter the Ereader shows you.

    Now my question: Books or Ereaders?

    For me, It would be books. Nothing can replicate the feel and especially the smell of books (If you don’t love the smell of books, then you are not a real reader) I spend a long time smelling new books I’ve purchased (making sure I’m alone of course, don’t want my family thinking I’m a weirdo)

    As efficient an Ereader is, I have to go for paper and ink over a screen.

    Share your feelings on this subject.

    Ereaders are useful but its annoying to search for places to download from. They are more efficient when travelling but books feel better.

    Kindleeeeee. I buy books just for second re-reads where I need to use them for research. Or to underline, add sticky notes etc.

    But to read for pleasure, only Kindle. I am the person who reads in odd and akward positions while in bed, with dim light.

    So 1, I couldn’t see a word as my bedside lamp is awfully weak. 2, heavy harcovers would be the death of me while trying to read them…

    Books for home read (nothing compare to this feeling) and e-reader for traveling.

    You know that you can stack min 5000 books in that thing.

    if an e-book is very nice, I also buy it in its normal form and have a double (lots of doubles)

    Depends, it’s all personal preference. I have both a NOOK and iPad that has Kindle and NOOK apps on it.

    If I’m at home on the couch or in my recliner, the book is the way to go.

    If I’m in bed, traveling, either flying or riding, the e-reader is the way to go.

    While I do prefer an actual book, I live in a small space so I have a kindle fire (and scribe) which I do use everyday. But If I get a chance – i.e. my public library or the books I do have left in my house – I’ll take the time to enjoy holding a book, smelling that book smell, & turning actual pages. 🙂
