Why I love ebooks:
  • They never get brown pages.
  • The covers stay pristine.
  • They never carry germs or get dusty.
  • No spine creases!
  • They take up no physical space.
  • I can change the font size or even the font.
  • I can highlight, make notes and not damage the book.
  • I can search through a book by word or phrases.
  • I can use a popup dictionary for word definitions.
  • It's easier to hold as it weighs the weight of an eReader.
  • Instant Gratification. (I want, I buy, I download and read.)
  • Privacy: No one knows what racey book I am reading.
  • The pages can't be torn out or go missing because my cat can't eat it.

Why I love physical Books.
  • They look pretty on my shelf.
  • Having them on my shelf makes me look smart.
  • I can navigate quickly to a page I need
That's all I can think of.

I still buy paperbacks. I am currently reading one but if I can get the book in ebook form I prefer it unless it's overpriced then it's a gently used book for me. I try to read one PB a month but I prefer ebooks so it's hard for me.
