I definitely prefer having a physical copy of the book I’m reading but I’m also not against ebooks either. I have an assortment of both.

When I started running out of physical space for my books I started appreciating ebooks.

There is nothing as sweet as reclining in your seat with a good book. Paperback is better and more friendly to the eyes but i also love the convenience technology brings.

I prefer e-books because there are more options for taking notes, and they do not waste space in a library. It is also easier to review books if they are e-books in my opinion.

I most definitely prefer paperback.

eBooks are manageable and easier to use but paperback feels good to the eyes and nothing can replace the smell of papers.
