Books. Books. Books.
Physical Books. Ebooks.
What’s the difference? Does it matter? Is one better than the other?
This is a really hard topic I think because I like books of all kinds. I have a Kindle and an iPad. I also have reading apps on my phone. However, I can guarantee there is at least one book in my car right now and a book on my nightstand too. Each type of book has its advantages and its drawbacks.
They smell amazing! I mean what is better than the smell of a new books (or an old book)! Going to a library or a bookstore and smelling the paper is one of the most relaxing things in the world.
Turning the pages! There is nothing more satisfying than turning the pages in a book. Being able to look at the book and see how far you have come and just how much you have left.
Convenient! Having them with you where ever you go is really convenient. Sometimes carrying a big Books around just isn’t feasible. However, pulling on up on your phone is easy and you don’t have to carry anything extra with you. Plus you can read it on multiple devices!
Cheaper! When you are a bookaholic like me, you tend to spend a lot of money on books. Getting Ebooks on the kindle app tends to be quite a bit cheaper than buying the physical book.
I honestly don’t care what type of book I have as long as I have a book. I think that I actually have more Ebooks than traditional books, but it’s because I am cheap and I also don’t like to wait for my books to arrive.
Which do you prefer? Are physical books better than Ebooks? Are Ebooks better than physical books?
