Q: What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, eBooks, paperback etc?
If I plan on re-reading the book, I want it in either hardcover or paperback. I find that I can connect to a book better when its in my hands. I also prefer my library to be on my bookshelf instead of on a computer file. I can find any book I want on my bookshelf in seconds, even if I can’t remember who wrote it or what it’s called. I remember it instantly from the cover. When I have to flip through files on my Kindle, it takes me forever to find the exact book. Plus, since it is in black and white, I don’t even know what the covers look like for the majority of books on my Kindle. And I like picking up signed copies of books. Having a signed ecopy version just isn’t the same.
If I’m reading a book for review purposes, I prefer using my Kindle. Firstly, I don’t want to waste an author’s time or money on a book I might not like and will probably never read again. Secondly, I like making notes. I don’t mind writing notes on my Kindle books, but I would freak if anyone wrote notes on my paperbacks/hardcover books, especially the signed ones.
Then, depending on the situation, I will bring either my Kindle or a paperback. If I’m anywhere around water, I bring a paperback. If I’m planning on going to the library or eating, I bring my Kindle. If I’m going to be outside and in the heat, I bring a paperback. In a car, I bring either or both.
What format do you prefer to read your books?
