Book vs. E-readers


I love books. I have for as long as I can remember.
I like how they smell and feel. I am attracted to pretty book covers, but I will read books with ugly or worn out covers just as well.

 To me books have only two downsides : 1. The price of books is going up, even for used ones. 2. Books can take up a lot of space.


I don't own or plan to buy an e-reader. I have had the privilege to use a family member's e-reader. All the books were organized and it kept track of what page you were on. 
Plus you can get some books on it for free or a couple of bucks. For that reason I can see why the e-reader is getting more and more popular.


I like books best ,but I am not against e - readers.

P.S. Please feel free to leave your opinion on this subject in the comments.


  1. I'm not a fan of e-readers generally speaking (although I'm judging from reading about them, not use), however I "get" the pros and cons. In all likelihood I'll someday get one, it's just... nothing can replace the fun-ness of getting a print book in the mail! :)

  2. Thanks for commenting Rissi!
    Your right, an e-book can't replace the fun of getting a physical of copy in the mail.

    I don't know if I"ll ever get one because I'm not planning on buying one; I would rather pay money for 'real' books.
