I like real books, but I also don’t mind reading e-books every now and then. I definitely will never give up my bookshelves full of books. I just love being able to grab a book from my shelves, grab a hot drink and read away. Turning real pages and smelling the paper (books smell good!)

I can definitly say I love having both Paperbook and eBook . Simply because I'm just a little too clumsy depending on the situation. For instance when it comes to things where I am in an environment that doesn't allow me to ruin a good paper book so that i can sit to feel, smell and hear each page as I turn definity calls for it. As to oppose an environment where there are items to spill all over my book or somewhere which requires me to be super busy and I'm stuffing my book into my bag due to me running here and there is not my ideal situation for a Paperbook, so my other trusty book, eBook comes into place. But whats mainly important is that while reading you can diving head first into a story that takes you somewhere else. Where you can revisit or go on to another journey and its not because of the differences between paper or digital, but because of the Authors that draws you in. 📖📖📖📖 📚📚📚📚

In the modern era, most people are of the opinion that e-books are the best. For me, I love both the e-books and the paper books but if I were to choose I would pick on paper book because at the end of the day after reading the book I can always fill my shelves. Whoever wants to read it will easily access it with or without a smart phone or any other device that one needs to read an e-book.

Paper book is the best to read . It is the way you can touch every page of book besides reading . I’m sure , every bookworm love to take smell of pages . When we read books , we just dive in it and we escape from reality . So , paperbook is the nice way of reading . Turning the pages over is like we are turning a new episode . Touch does matter . Touching the letters of books is kinda touchy and it’s like we are fixing every words of the story . As I’m a booklover I’ll must go for a paperbook . E-book is not that much cool . And paperbook is the amazing way of continue our bookstagram . Make a cool bookish photography , go for a paperbook .

I know that I'm probably going to be bashed for this but I prefer and e-reader to a traditional book. I have run out of room for real books in my home. An e-reader is so much easier to handle. No page turning, no need for bookmarks that may fall out and easy to pack and store.

I've always said I prefer actual books, but I am starting to see the benefits of the e-book. Especially now I've discovered this site.

As I have been reading and collecting paper books over the past 10 years, I have to say, storage system is a nightmare. When my bookshelves became full, I resorted to boxes. When my boxes became full I resorted to a neat file under my bed. When that was full, I made a shelf beside my bed (coz who dislikes having a nice bedtime story?) But I hope you get my point. Paper books honestly take a LOT of space (hard bound, soft bound, trilogies and series!)
Ebooks on the other hand, admittedly are compact and handy. But that's only up until the battery lasts. Not to mention the blue light and radiation gives me a killer headache in the long run.
So I'd say, ebook is the good choice for a storage and budget friendly collection (my student years). But if you're in the process of building and maintaining a library, nothing beats the satisfaction of running your fingers against the spines of paper books <3
