You are reading...

Let’s face it, we’re in the digital age. There is no turning back. Technology is part of everything we touch, including our precious books. Enter e-books. I’m sure many of you are familiar with them. And there are probably many of you who have downloaded an e-book. There are distinct advantages in being able to download your next romance read.

1. They save space. Approximately 500 e-books can be stored on one CD. Imagine the amount of shelf space you’ll free up.

2. You can adjust the size of the type and read instead of searching for your glasses so you can see what’s on the page.

3. You don’t have to hold the pages open. No more hard to read words toward the interior of the pages, forcing you to pull the book at both ends to read the words.

4. You can hold it with one hand.

5. You are saving trees.

However, there are those of us who enjoy the book holding experience. Cuddling up in our favorite chair. Cracking open the spine. Digging in for a great read.

So what about you – plastic or paper?

    I use both plastic and paper. Some books can only be found in e-book form. And I’ve discovered many good authors through e-books.

    I need paper! I can’t sit at my computer to read a book. Plus I just love the feel of a book in my hands. There’s nothing like snuggling up on a cold day with an afgan, a puppy and a good book.

    Kim, if you had a handheld or ebook reader, you wouldn’t have to sit at the pc, and could snuggle up just fine, lol.
    Saving space is a real benefit, plus reading when the power goes out at night (no more reading by candle light for me). Don’t have to lug as many books in the suitcase anymore when I go away; don’t have to go through boxes (no more space around the place) to find the book, easily found in my PC books folder; if I want to go back and look up a certain scene or something to tell a friend about, can search real quick instead of re-reading, lol.

    I still read both, print and ebook, but there are many pros to ebooks, too. Once you start, you get used to it.

    Paper for me. I’ve tried e-books but I always end up with a headache.

    Paper. I like my books, and I love the romance novel covers. I don’t care who sees them.
