FIR '10: Reading Question #2

FIR is hosted by Katrina at Callapidderdays.

Every Tuesday this fall, Katrina will be posting a question about reading.

Today's question: What do you think about e-books? Do you engage in e-reading or do you prefer to stick to good ol’ physical books?
I do not have an e-reader and am 50/50 about getting one. I love the feel and smell of new books and even older ones for that matter. Plus, I love having books fill all the shelves in my house. I can see that at times, it might be easier to have an e-reader, especially when traveling - load a bunch of books on it and you are good to go without taking up valuable space in your luggage for books. But, for now, I am quite content with my physical book in hand!

What about you? Are you an e-reader fan or a fan of the physical books?


  1. I was anti-ereader until my hubby bought me a Nook. And I love it! But I'm like you, I love the feel and smell of books too much to totally give them up. I read about 50/50....

  2. I agree with Julie. I didn't think I'd like it because I detested reading eBook son the PC but since my Nook...

  3. Interesting read. I am also 50/50 about getting on. I really LOVE my books and I can't imagine not having the actual book in my hand...

  4. I prefer a physical book above a e-book.
