Paper Books, eBooks, or Audio Books?
For this week’s Monday Question, I thought I’d yet again dive into the controversial waters of ebooks versus traditional books, with a twist.
If you could only “read” books in one format for the rest of your life, would you choose paper books, ebooks, or audio books? Why?
I prefer the paper book. In fact, I’ve read all 75 novels from this list in a paper book format, so I’m totally fine continuing to do that for the rest of my life—as long as paper books don’t go the way of the eight track cassette.
I don’t mind ebooks, and I won’t hate on you for using them, but I just don’t enjoy reading in that format. As for audio books, I simply can’t. Just can’t. I’ve tried listening to audio books on several occasions and I just can’t do it. My ears hear the narrator but my mind is way off somewhere else—watching out for deer on the side of the road or thinking about the Georgia game this weekend.
So that’s where I stand. I’m paper books all the way.
What about you?
