Book Blogger Hop - 2/1/2019


Question of the Week:

Have you made the switch from print to e-books? Is either one exclusive? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

My Answer:

I have not made a complete switch, but I have been reading e-books more than I have in the past.

Neither has turned exclusive and probably won't.

I don't think I would ever go exclusively to e-books because I love holding books and sharing them with others.

  1. I'm the same! I loooove holding my book, turning the page, smelling the paper! Though I'm not so big on lending my precious books out! Lol! I'm more likely to buy the book for someone if they really want to read it!

    Here's my Book Blogger Hop

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. It is difficult when folks ask to borrow, but I lend it anyway to spread the love.

      I like your idea about buying them their own.

      I am choosy who I share it with. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Jessica.

  2. I almost exclusively read ebooks on my Kindle Oasis. The result of this is that I am frustrated when I touch a book on my real book and there is no definition.

  4. Same here. Ebooks are just more convenient.

    1. VERY convenient for traveling. That’s when I appreciate them the most. :)

  5. I love ebooks. Easier to read in bed and obviously don't have the storage constraints of physical copies. That said, I'd never surrender my favourites and don't think I could accept having no bookshelves in my house so there is always a space for both!

    Audiobooks I still struggle with but I'm listening in the car now so it's progress!

    1. I am with you on not liking to have NO bookshelves...that would be awful.

      I like audios for listening in the car too.

      Thanks for commenting, Nicci.

    1. It depends where you can get the book more easily. :)

      Some print books have a ridiculous waiting list.

      Thanks for commenting, Nicki.

  7. I do tend to read more e-books these days than physical books, however, I read both. I also listen to audiobooks from time to time.

  9. You know, I cherish the fond hope that printed books will NEVER disappear!! However if they ever do....(OMG, what a HORRIBLE thought!!), then I will be going back and forth between ebooks and audiobooks.

    I suppose you've been reading more ebooks lately because of their convenience, right? Yes, they are convenient, but, like you, I feel that holding a REAL book in one's hands is SHEER BLISS!! AS for sharing, I only do that through reviews and buddy reads online. I don't lend out my precious printed books anymore! Not since my first copy of "Jane Eyre" came back to me all tattered and worn.... Heck, the poor book looked like it had been through a WAR!! So, NEVER AGAIN. Lol.

    Now that's one advantage of ebooks -- you can share them with others, and they won't look as though they had seen combat action! Haha!!

    Thanks for sharing, as well as for cropping by and commenting!! HUGS!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

    1. I had one woman's dog take a chunk out of the corner of a book I lent her. Needless to say, she hasn't gotten any more books. :)

      Thanks for a terrific comment, Maria.
