Hello everyone ! It has been a long time since I posted a discussion post, I know ! And here I come back, with a way too seen topic. I know, I know. But lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the pros and cons of the different forms of a book.
Let’s start with the ones I own the most : the paperbacks. I love them because they’re pretty, not too heavy and they’re cheaper than their big brothers. But they get damaged pretty easily… And that’s an issue.
The hardbacks now. I really love my hardbacks. They are so gorgeous on my shelves ! They’re a bit pricey but they’re worth it ! It’s just that they’re really heavy so it can’t be difficult to read them, you know ? You’ve got to find a suitable position so your arms are not hurting from holding it.
Now for the e books. I own a kindle but I’m not a huge fan of e books. The reason is simple : I’m a book hoarder and I can’t put my e books on my shelves and that’s SO frustrating ! But have to admit that it can be practical : when traveling you don’t have to suffer from a back pain because you’re bringing too many books ! (or, other case, you don’t have to bring an extra suitcase JUST for your books !). And they’re way cheaper ! Let’s be honest, I bought some e books I wasn’t sure I would like. And, most of the time, when I love an e book, I always end up buying a physical copy of it !
