Which one do you prefer? eBooks are obviously WAY easier to obtain. If I’m not really sure if I’ll like a book, I’ll buy the eBook version so that it doesn’t have to take up space in my house. eBooks are also just way more convenient, since you can buy them in the comfort of your home, and you don’t have to wait for them to get delivered to you.
That being said, I think many people are still in love with holding and looking at a PHYSICAL book…or at least I am. This generation still isn’t internet/technologically friendly enough to respect reading on a computer, tablet, etc. I’ve never really minded reading books on my devices, but there’s something special about reading a book in print.
For instance, I think it’s easier to be proud of a physical book that you’re reading; you can take it anywhere and look like an intellectual boss (if that exists)! I also think that, for promotional reasons, having books in print is better, because other people can actually SEE that you’re reading a book written by so-and-so. If you’re just reading an eBook on your phone or tablet, it’s harder for people to see that and become aroused by what you’re reading.
Which one do you guys prefer though? As an author, hearing what you have to say is important to me! eBooks are convenient, print is classy. Any thoughts?
