Question of the Day

Which do you prefer, ebook or print?

Print books are better as I can go back and check what characters said or look at maps more easily but the size of an ebook is easier to fit in a purse.

I like both print and ebooks! I tend to buy print books for those that I know I will really enjoy. I also prefer print books for those I will use at work. I also don’t care for hardback books, so I almost exclusively buy ebooks for titles that come out in hardback, but that I want to read without having to wait for 6 months+ for a paperback.

Print! Books never need recharging.

Amista Phillips

I like to read ebooks and display print books.


  on October 25, 2017 :

I love both, but nothing beats holding a paperback in my hands.

Definitely print. The feel and smell of a book is a big part of the experience. Plus, I can quickly go back to my favorite parts.

If I have to use an eBook it’s because I couldn’t get the print version at the library. I do like that I can make the text larger. And thankfully, an eBook once downloaded on a eReader, doesn’t require Internet. Just batteries, haha.

Didn’t we already do this question? I don’t mind answering it twice … maybe I’m dreaming… I prefer to read ebooks at night as then I don’t have to worry about a light… During the day, I’ll read either print or ebook… I still like holding a real book… it brings back wonderful memories. AND, it’s not part of the question, but I have become a huge fan of audiobooks over the last 5 years. They allow me to read when I normally couldn’t. AND, when paired with a great narrator, audiobooks actually enhance my reading experience!


  on October 25, 2017 :

I like books when at home. When on the go and traveling e-books are the way to go.

Nichole B

  on October 25, 2017 :

I like both. I usually HAVE to own my books in print, then get them in ebook when they go on sale. 🙂

Melissa Esser

  on October 25, 2017 :

Give me a good book any way I can have it!!

Erindel Conner

I still prefer print but do most of my purchasing in ebook format lately till I get more bookshelves lol 🙂

LeeAnn De La Cruz

As a mom of a toddler and a baby i say ebook. Before having kids i loved the feeling of a book in my hands but everything changes with motherhood!

Dawn Roberto

  on October 25, 2017 :

I actually read both formats.

Jill C

  on October 25, 2017 :

I prefer Print books (not that I don’t have a lot of both)

Gina D

  on October 25, 2017 :

Both! But I hate traveling with my Kindle. I’m always afraid I’ll leave it somewhere. But you can’t beat the smell of a good book 🙂

Jessica Jones

  on October 25, 2017 :

I prefer print, but if it’s a book I fall in love with I get it on both.


  on October 25, 2017 :

I prefer Print! But I’ll take Ebook when needed.

Deanna nagle

  on October 25, 2017 :

I always prefer to go with a print book.

Amanda Warner

This question is about the same as yesterday’s. Idk if its a mistake or suppose to be this way? LOL! But, ebook for sure!
