Real Book vs. Electronic Book
The big news this past year in publishing has been the popularity of the e-reader. There’s the Amazon Kindle, the Sony Reader, and the Barnes and Noble Nook. Also, coming on strong is the e-book download. More and more publishers are catching on to this wave of the future and offering their books in some form of electronic format.
For me, personally, I hate reading off a screen. I can only sit in front of a computer for so long before my eyes get buggy and my hind end gets numb. I need a real book to hold and smell and real pages to turn and dog-ear. That’s just me. I’ll always prefer a “real” book over an electronic one (of course, I said I’d never get a cell phone too and now couldn’t do my job without one (I still don’t like it, though)).
So how about you? Do you prefer real pages to turn over digital ones? Or are you riding the electronic book wave?
