Follow Friday (69)

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read!

Q. What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, e-books, paperback, etc?

A. As much as I love my kindle, nothing beats the feel of reading from an actual book for me. While I used to be strictly a paperback fan I've grown to love the hardbacks. There's just something about curling up with a book, holding the weight in your hands. And come on, who can resist that new book smell?
Whether it be on my iPhone, my iPod touch, or one of my kindles, I prefer to read books on my kindle application lately. Only because it makes it easier to take books everywhere and with it, and I can read in bed with the lights off, snuggled under the covers. But I still buy a lot of physical books, especially when I love a book I've read on my kindle. I love to own my favorites in physical form so if I every want to read a certain part I can just flip to the page, or reread the entire thing.
What format do you prefer?


  1. I am definitely a fan of a "real" book, but I've grown to love my Kindle. One place I've discovered the Kindle will never compare...the beach :) New GFC follower. Happy Friday!

  2. I really am all about the physical. I do prefer a book in hand, even a paperback to a hardcover. A paperback fits more easily in my hands. :) I do cherish my ereaders, though.

  3. Kindle is the best for night-time reading. I got the new paperwhite and it's perfect for being able to read without disturbing anyone else.

  4. I read ebooks now since my nine bookcases are overflowing. I also like reading self published writers and many don't have a print copy available.

  5. I just bought a new Nook and love it! I can also have Kindle books on it as well, so I get the best of both worlds.

  6. I love the smell and feel of brand new books! I like being the first person to open one. Unfortunately, I haven't got a new book in a long time.

  7. I love having a book actually in my hands, but I do also love to read my ebooks, because that's my main form of review book. So I agree with both Jenn and Emily! :) I'm an old follower passing through again.

    My FF:

  8. I love physical books more than everything. Ebooks are convenient and handy but like jenn said, it's great to just feel the weight of the book in your hands.
