I'm guessing everyone has heard this argument or have had a discussion concerning Paperbacks VS Ebooks. Recently, I was asked which I preferred. It didn't take me long to answer the question~ I have no intention of choosing one over the other. I like both. At this point, I confused the person who asked the question.
To me, it's like choosing coffee over tea, beer over wine, a pen over a pencil, writing notes rather than typing them, as if one of them is wrong. Just because one person likes one over the other, doesn't mean I agree.
I'm not choosing and here's why:
Are easy, I just bought one fifteen minutes ago wearing a pair of PJ pants and a tank top.
When I travel I can take as many as I like (a little indecisive) and the airport isn't going to charge me for throwing someone's back out.
I can totally be sneaky reading on my tablet 'like I was checking my email'. Haha~ joking Boss Man
Don't require a cord or the internet.
Feels good in my hands.
Can easily be traded among friends.
They're all over my house, and better than some of my decorations.
Side note: Sadly, I have had a dog eat one of my favorites! The chewed up pieces were stuck to my carpet, it was a sad day.
If you have paperbacks where are they?
I have one in each of my cars, three on my nightstand, two on my desk, one on my dining room table, and one at work. I take paperbacks everywhere, but I take ebooks everywhere when I have my tablet or phone. It's all about books and the world they create, why choose one over the other?
Ok, I'm throwing book stores in here really quick~ I do enjoy shopping for books in my PJs, but when you're looking in your favorite aisle and you pick a book up in order to read the back, and a stranger comments 'that's a good one', it's a kindred spirit kind of thing.
So there you have it, the short and sweet~ simplest of simple reasons why I refuse to choose one over the other. You know, besides I don't have to.
How about you?
Do you enjoy both?
"I never feel lonely if I've got a book - they're like old friends. Even if you're not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they're part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life."
"The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who'll get me a book I ain't read."
