Books or eReaders?



So summer is finally approaching and I finally have some spare time to sit down and read. I'm a bit torn at the moment though. I'm not sure whether to purchase a book for my eReader or whether to read the book I bought ages before I had my eReader. 

To be more specific, I own a Kindle. I'll be honest, being a massive fan of books, I thought I'd hate it. Turns out it's actually quite a neat invention. Easy to carry around (especially on long journeys), e-books are cheaper, and it's a lot slimmer than holding a book in your hand. 

Then again, I do miss turning the pages of a book and the feel of turning that very first page and the very last. I've been wanting to read About Last Night by Adele Parks for a while now. But I absolutely hate putting books in my bag whilst travelling in case they get creased. I'm also sensing quite a few train journeys coming up this summer...

It would be a shame to waste my Kindle as I haven't had time to really use it since I've had it but, at the same time, you've got to love a good old fashion book with pages to turn. 

Do you prefer reading from an actual book or from your Kindle/Kobo?

  1. Ah! I know how you feel. I recently got a nook and feel quite torn about wether I prefer physical books over it. I must admit though, it's much easier to get your hands on hard to find books now!

    1. Yeah, it's much quicker and easier to purchase e-books! It's also much easier to end up buying too many e-books as it's just a click away haha!

    1. Yeah I don't think I could ever stop buying paper books completely. My Kindle is amazing for long journeys and holidays though :)
