um, is this the same question as yesterday? I prefer print, but ebook is all I can read right now with a baby in hand.

Ebooks so I can read comfortably into the wee hours of the night, and always have my book with me. I do miss the smell of print books though.

I like ebooks but prefer print. If i really enjoyed the ebook I will get it in print but most of my books are ebooks to save the trees and my bookshelf space

I love books! But have a kindle anyway☺️

Ya, ebooks are so much easier to travel with than regular books and you can have your whole library on there. AMy sister loves audiobooks but it’s just so easy for the aduidobook reader to mess it up that I really don’t them.

Aly P

Both, ebooks for most books and print to reread my favorite books 🙂

Kim Marie

nonfiction = paper mostly
fiction = ebook or paper


  on October 25, 2017 :

Definitely Print!


  on October 25, 2017 :

I prefer print but I also read ebooks and listen to audio books. I’ll take them anyway I can get them, whichever is most convenient at the time! I have most of my very favorites in print, ebook and audio so I can read them whenever and wherever I want!


  on October 25, 2017 :

I prefer my ebook. I can carry 100 book at one time or read it without the lights on😀

Lisa Ayers

  on October 25, 2017 :

I prefer print books. There is just something about holding it in my hand and it never runs out of batteries. That being said – Cheryl is one of only a few authors that I have all of her books in ebook format as well. Since both my husband and I read her books it ensures that we can both read at our leisure without being pressured to hurry up!

Jennifer Hubbard

Exclusively read ebook

Heather Foster

I love both and have quite a bit of both, but I do have a soft spot for print books.

Terry LePage

  on October 25, 2017 :

Print, hands down.

Kim Ann H.

  on October 25, 2017 :

I love my ereader. And huge archive.

Mathilda S

Some books that I have wanted to read I have been unable to find in print but I have been able to read them as e-books. If I like them and find them as prints by chance I buy them later. I enjoy having my bookcases filled with the books I really enjoyed reading. And some books I love to read again, and again. E-books can disappear if you have to re-install the e-bookreader app one time to many. Print is for keeps. ❤️
