Alison Can Read Feature & Follow
It’s Feature & Follow Friday! This is a weekly meme
hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.
Every week, we post our answers to a weekly question,
and get to meet & follow other book bloggers!

This week’s question is…

What is your preferred reading format?

Hardcover, eBooks, paperback, etc.?

For the most part, I don’t really have a preferred format. I guess I prefer to buy books in paperback or eBook, just because it’s easier on the wallet. But I still like reading hardbacks, unless they are truly massive. Ebooks are nice especially when traveling, because people like me (who can’t make up their minds what to read on a trip) can take tons of books with them and not add any weight to the suitcase. ;) One situation where I’d need to have a print book as opposed to an ebook, though, is with books like The Knife of Never Letting Go – where the fonts play a role in the experience of the book (if you haven’t read/seen it, check out the “Look Inside” on Amazon). I’m really picky about my eBooks needing to be perfectly formatted on my Nook, and that book is just weird on it, because of all the cool stuff the fonts do… in the print book. Which is why it’s currently waiting for me at my library, lol.

  1. I too have no reading preference. I usually take a TON of ebooks with me on vacation, so I’ll have an infinite supply of books without weighing down my suitcase!

  2. I love ebooks because you can take them with you anywhere with an ereader device. But sometimes paperbook/hardcover are cheaper, or books are best read on printed paper. I personally prefer physical books to ebooks even though I own a ton of books on my Kindle. I think it’s great to actually read the real thing and you can share it with anyone without any restrictions or limitations. I agree with everything you said, nice FF :)

  3. I don’t go anywhere without my Kindle! I only converted earlier this year. I’ve always loved the feel of holding a book in my hands and the smell of a new book. But I reached a point where my husband and I have enough books to need a separate room to store them making my office look like a used book store! I love discovering all the self published writers, and some tend to publish in ebook format only.

  4. Yes, we are very alike! I read The Knife of Never Letting Go on my eReader (a Nook at the time) and it was kind of weird and made me wish I had read a hard copy.

    Thanks for visiting my FF and following! I followed you back on Bloglovin’!

  5. Hmm I prefer hardcover and ebooks myself. I think paperbacks are too flimsy and is always OCD about whether I’m breaking them or not. I’m a new follower on bloglovin’!

  6. Thanks for the heads up on The Knife of Never Letting Go. The series is pretty high up on my TBR. I purchased the Kindle books when they were on sale last year, but I may have to borrow them from the library instead.

  7. Aaah yes, the decisions that our budgets make for us. :) I’d rather have two paperbacks than one hardcover any day. And I am so on your team with regards to travelling – I always insist on taking a pile of books with me whenever I go anywhere for a few days and my Kindle makes packing so much easier!

    Have a great weekend Nikki!

  8. I agree with the ease of bringing multiple books around with you. I tend to read more then one book at a time so when I am away from home me ereader helps a lot.

    I’m actually surprised at the number of people saying they prefer hard cover books but that could just be because I prefer soft cover. I always found the dust jacket to be annoying and then I tend to either squash it or lose it if take them off to read. lol.

    Anyways I am a new follower via blog lovin’ :)

  9. Ebooks are great for travel trips. I refuse to pay luggage costs when flying so it all has to fit in the carry-on. My kindle is perfect for this. Otherwise trying to fit 3-5 books or so can take up a lot of space needed for clothes, gifts, etc that I may have with me.
