I can’t seem to decide whether I should keep buying all my new books as eBooks and read them on my Kindle. It’s so easy to buy them. It’s cheap (I live in Norway, and it’s a lot cheaper to buy the books from Amazon), and I can start reading my new books within seconds after ordering them.
It took me a long time to discover sync, and how awesome it is to read a chapter on my iPhone/iPad, and continue to read from the exact page I left when I’m back on my kindle. I’m switching between various devices when I’m reading my eBooks.
But, there’s something missing.
It’s hard to explain, but I just love the feeling of holding a printed book. It’s something unique and great, about touching the paper, and turning the pages. I love putting the books I’ve read, in the bookshelf. I really enjoy looking at them, thinking about the time I read them. And, sometimes, when I’m looking at a cover, it reminds me of an important part of the book.
I still order a lot of print books, and at the same time, I keep reading eBooks. I don’t have a plan for when I’m ordering printed books or when I’m ordering an eBook, well, except for when I really want to start reading the book immediately. That’s the easy part.
What about you?
Do you still buy and read printed books, or are you all about eBooks by now?
