I wanted a feature on my blog where I could discuss things with everyone, bookish and not. Feel free to join in and give your thoughts and opinions!
There’s always been a debate of whether eReaders are better than physical books. Which do you think is better? Which one do you find yourself reading more? Is there one brand of eReader you prefer?
I have to say that both books and eReaders have their pros and cons. Here’s my thoughts on both of them:
- Books are so pretty and look amazing on a shelf. I just love the feel of holding one, and of course that new book smell! There’s just something about buying or getting physical books in the mail that ebooks can’t top. The only problem is they take up a lot of space. I have a huge bookshelf but I still have to be conscious of space.
- eReaders are so lightweight and they can pretty much travel with you anywhere. If you’re going on vacation and don’t want to bring a pile of books it’s perfect, as long as you can recharge it. They do last wuite a while depending on the brand though. The ebooks can also be cheaper but if you’re like me, I don’t have colour on my device so I can’t appreciate the covers.
Even though eReaders are amazing, I still prefer reading from an actual book. Just the idea of holding it, flipping the pages and having in on my shelf make it the better way for me.
As for my favourite eReader? Definitely my Kindle. I’ve had too many problems with multiple Kobo’s over my blogging career. I’ve gone through 3 that have all crashed and broken down on me in a short amount of time. I even had one replaced and it did the same thing in less than a month.
