eBooks vs. paper books

I started reading eBooks around 12 years ago. There was no Kindle yet. I had a Blackberry which had an eBook reading app. But the screen was too small, and I seldom read more than a few minutes. Then came Kindle, and I began building an eBook library.

But I still love reading paper books. There’s something about holding a book in your hands while sipping a cup of coffee and jotting notes on the side. The feel of paper feels good on my hands. And maybe I could add: the smell of paper.

So which do I prefer? I would still read paper books when I can. It’s not all the time, however, that I have a paper book on hand. I do bring two or three paper books with me in my truck. But most of the time, I forget to bring them with me when I get down to have coffee.

On this point, the eBook wins it!img_20190921_0601031903627806768887232.jpg
