eBooks or Hardcover?

Posted September 14, 2015 - 8:28pm

What is your pick? Do you still want to physically turn the pages of a good book or do you prefer reading eBooks?

I was a diehard book person until I received a kindle as a gift. I am hooked! Electronic is lighter and can hold so much. I am sold!


I do both.  I like using the Kindle reader on my phone because I can read in bed even if my hubby is sleeping.  I've read digital books to my kids too and it's nice to always have it handy but I haven't giving up physical books yet!


I usually prefer regular books, but due to a lot of moving around, the Kindle's been a God send. Nothing I hate worse than having to keep hauling books around.

I read so many Kindle books that when I switch to a regular book I find myself swiping the page with my finger to try to get it to turn.  Have to laugh at myself on that one.  I do like an actual book for instense studies, but love the access to Free Kindle Books.

Hardcover all the way. Alhtough, admittedly, I have never read anything on a kindle.


Both!! I love books! But, now because books take up more space..prefer Kindle.

I was a die hard book person until I got my iPad and Kindle app a few years ago. My daughter held out longer than me, but she made the switch too. I love that I can just bring my iPad anywhere and I have a library of books on it.


I love an old-fashioned book. I love the feel of the pages, the smell of the ink and the experience. When we read as a family, I love sharing the book. I also read on the kindle when i'm traveling because it's light weight and easy to put in and out of my purse. But I'm for the old school ways of reading.

I have to agree if I'm reading with the kids I prefer an actual book.


I love love love my Kindle Paperwhite. It allows me to read in stituations I might not otherwise due to size/weight of books, light available, etc. Sometime I opt for a real book, though. I don't always feel like I really own an ebook.


so true! I love my Kindle but really don't feel like I own those books either. :)
