Over the past six months to a year, I've started reading a lot more e-books. And to my surprise, I prefer them. Don't get me wrong - I love the feeling of holding a book in my hands; I love walking into a room and seeing shelves lined with books; I like being able to easily flip back and forth between pages; I love having books signed by authors. But e-books are so convenient. It made me wonder whether other people's feelings toward e-books has changed as they've become more prevalent.
Are you using e-books more? Do you like them better than you used to?
I still don't have a dedicated e-reader. I have both an iPad and an iPhone, but I read nearly everything on my phone. I like reading on an iPad better in theory due to the larger size, but the iPhone is much more convenient. That's what I like about e-books the most: the convenience. I can read a book no matter where I am. I could and sometimes do pull a print book out of my purse and read it while I'm in line at the grocery store or in a doctor's office, but it's bulky and sometimes people look at you funny.
