Do you prefer eBooks or print books and why?
Even though I have several eReaders, I still prefer print books. When I have a physical book on my nightstand, it’s a visual reminder that I need to read it! When it’s on my eReader, I forget it’s there, and the books just pile up. I also feel like I’m getting more value when I purchase or win a print book. I know that it costs the publisher a lot less to produce an eBook, so I don’t feel like I’ve really received anything of value when I just receive a book file. With a print book, I feel like I’ve received an item that’s worth something. And when I’m done with a print book, I can either use it for a giveaway on my blog or donate it to my local used bookstore, which raises money for our city’s libraries. You can’t donate an eBook! I will continue to read eBooks sometimes, but I hope that print books never go away!
