Over the past few
I had noticed an ongoing dispute amongst many people on twitter recently, what is better, a real book or an electronic copy. Many saying that an electronic copy of a book is nothing compared to the original. So… To book or to E-read that is the question!?
well, it got me thinking since there is there’s pretty much 2 ways of reading a story, which one is better? or are they just as good as each other? personally, I feel that they both have pros and cons equally.
Why I love Paper books…
honestly, what is there not to love about a good quality book. Whether it is a brand new copy or a much loved preowned, there is nothing quite like the feel of sitting cozy, flicking through the pages and that book smell, alongside a cup of coffee, sounds lush right? exactly, I honestly believe you cant actually beat a true copy of a book.
I love being able to keep my eye out in a charity shop for a few more books every now and then, And who can complain when
Why I love E-books…
Ok, so they may be lacking in the same warm feeling as the physical book, and admittedly they don’t have the loving book smell that every book seems to have, but I actually think that E-books have so many pros to them as well.
How can you honestly fault the ability to be able to hold thousands of books to read all in one place?
I don’t have a lot of space in our room for hundreds of physical books so for me having lots of books on my tablet gives me so much freedom on being able to download
E-books to me, are very convenient, I can carry a book with me 24/7 for an emergency just by having the app on my tablet and phone! great!
I will admit one thing! If I love a book that I have read electronically, so much. I will most likely by the physical book
I mean e-Readers are still relatively new and they are never really gonna have the same feel to the real thing. As a reader you should be focusing of the quality of the experience as well, are you able to loose yourself in the tablet reading as much as you can loose yourself flicking through the pages of a book.
It’s an equal draw for me…
That’s right, I could probably argue with myself all day on what is the best format but I choose to love both formats! Both have there own pros and cons, but it is personal to me, which is what a book should really be. Even though an E-reader does not have the same feel,
What do you guys think? Do you prefer a physical book to read, or are you happy to read electronically?
