I’m curious to know how many people are old school like me and definitely prefer a physical copy of the book, or if I’m just a dying breed. Am I alone in my preference? Why do I like to read paper copies instead of ebooks? Well, I know they’re heavier and they take up more space, but I love holding the book. I love turning pages. (Am I weird? Please tell me someone else loves turning pages…) I like that I can flip back and reread sections or find my favorite quotes. I have yet to figure out a good way to do that on my Kindle. I have a Kindle because many of the books I review are only published as ebooks. However, if I have a choice, I always ask for the paper copy. Another reason I like paper copies is because I can share them. If I enjoy a book then I like to recommend it and loan it out to friends and family. I also like to read books and then hand them over to my kids to read. You can’t do that with ebooks, and it’s frustrating to me.
So, what do you think? What’s your preference and why? Please vote in the poll and tell us why you like that choice in the comments! I can’t wait to hear from all of you!
