Behind The Blog Monday #3: E-Book or Paperback

This feature was created by Holly from Bookish Musings to be able to learn more about the bloggers behind the blog, answer questions/this or thats/would you rather/etc, and just have fun!

This week’s Behind the Blog Monday topic is:

E-Book or Paperback?

ebook vs paperback

Reasons why I love e-books
1. I read them faster
2. I can make highlights and notes easier
3. I can bring a whole library of e-books when I travel
4. They are often cheaper

Reasons why I love paperback/physical copies
1. I can sniff them
2. I can bury my face in them
3. Shopping at the bookstore is so much fun
4. I like filling up my bookshelves
5. I can ravish the cover
6. I can hug the book when I cry

Though I think e-books are awesome, nothing compares to reading a paperback copy!

How about you? Would you go for an e-book or paperback? Let me know!




  1. I actually love reading both ebooks and hard copies. I get in moods where I prefer one or the other, but for the most part I choose based on what format I have the book I want to read. Right now I’m reading two ebooks and a hard copy. *shrugs*

    Also, I’m glad someone else has mentioned reading ebooks faster. I feel like I’m the same way, but I thought that was weird.

    1. Two ebooks and a hard copy? Damn, so badass! I don’t think I could juggle reading three books! Thanks for dropping by, Lisa. :)

  2. Yes, I absolutely love both formats. I read so fast on my nook. It amazes me sometimes because I find that I reach the end of a book and I had only started reading a couple of hours before. Overall, nothing beats holding a book in my hands. It just feels special and all mine. Great post!

  3. I totally agree with everything that you said! I love how in ebooks, you could easily highlight the text. I hate writing in books so ebooks would be perfect. Although getting a book through your Nook or Kindle etc., nothing beats physical copies. I just love having a physical book in front of me. THE FEELS, MAN!
