Paper or Plastic?



Booking Through Thursday


Do you read e-Books?
If so, how? On your computer, or a PDA?
Or are you a paper purist? Why?

- I sometime win an e-books prizes from authors from a email yahoo group list that I joined in. That is the only times I do read them. I use the Adobe PDF format to read e-books. I couldn't afford PDA, although I think it would be wise to get one if I read e-books.

However - I do prefer papers print books. Something about a touch of a paper, it smell and having it near by you, give me the comfort of knowing the books is real. And display it on shelf for keep. :)

What about you? Paper or Plastic?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

Just about every blog I've seen prefers actual books. I suppose nothing beats holding it in your hand. I know I can get a reader or something, but it doesn't feel the same. :D

And since I read on the PC... I can't bring it to the john (pardon me for saying that hehe).

Hi Julia, I think we book lovers share the same thoughts. LOL. I totally agree with you... I even thought of quitting my day job so that I could work in a huge bookstore like Kinokuniya. Hmm...

Happy BTT!

Yup... paper is my favorite, too, though I occasionally read eBooks.

Mine's up, too!

I wouldn't mind e-books, if I didn't have to sit at the computer to read them. I really must put a little thingy on my Christmas list. :)

My answer is up here

Kat - LOL about the john comment LOL ! But I always prefer papers, does not mean I'm not open to e-books :)

Alice - We lovers need to be afraid if we have same thoughts LOL...I too would love to own bookstores someday. One of my dream

Marianne - Even though I prefer papers, I'm open to e-books. But if I didn't had to read it in front of the computers, I would have read e-books often. It give me headaches if I read from computer..

Darla - Agree with you what you said, and I too need to buy those thingy as well ;)

Meowminx - Thanks for the comment and posting a note at my "post it note" at my blog ;)

Thanks everyone for visiting my blog. Happy Booking Through Thursday, have good day!
