About me

What started out as a pastime soon turned into a hobby that turned into a passion until it eventually became a necessity. Reading is a need so beautiful that I feel I must write about it every day.

A dilemma!

Save a tree and read an eBook...

Or buy the good ol' paper book?

 I tried reading a novel on my iPhone once. It felt good reading in the dark with a small device in my palm...never mind the fact that my eyesight increased by two digits after finishing it. I'm on the fence about downloading some of the books I've been wanting to read on my laptop or just getting the printed ones.  
How do you prefer to read the written word?


  1. I prefer actual books. Real books that I can pile up and smell and skim through pages.
    I like the advantages ebooks give and their great but I still like paperbacks and still buy them aswell.

  2. I have an e-reader and I love it, because it's so much easier to bring books with me on vacation :) It's easy to handle and I take my e-reader everywhere with me.

    Still, I prefer the good old books. Nothing can compare to the smell and feeling of a paper book in your hands! If I liked an e-book, it goes on my list and I'll buy it as a paperback. That's what reading is all about for me: seeing the covers of all the books I love in my bookcase :D
