And because she’s awesome, Parajunkee also made new pictures to show what way we’d most like people to follow us, so here’s mine (although, I’m not going to be upset if you choose another way!):
Today’s blog to follow is Got Fiction?. And the question for this week is:
Q: What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, eBooks, paperback etc?
A. I really don’t have a preference! I love them all but I guess it depends on the book. When I first got my Kindle a couple of years ago I was obsessed with reading books on it, but then last year I started attending things like BEA and book signings, so I’ve read less on the e-reader and more off my physical shelves. I’m also very much into audiobooks, but whether I buy a book on audio relies heavily on the narrator. When it comes to paperback vs. hardback, I guess I have to give the slight edge to paperbacks. They’re lighter, I don’t have to take off the covers to transport them around (I am forever messing up slip covers on books if I carry them around in my bag, it’s so sad because I read so carefully so as not to break spines and damage stuff, but I still have this horrible track record with slip covers on hardback books. A great tragedy to a book lover… and then I have to find the discarded slip covers… which doesn’t always happen.), they’re lighter, and more can fit in my tote bag. However, in defense of hardcover books, there is nothing more thrilling than holding a newly bought hardcover in your hands and petting it a bit before flipping it open.
What? You don’t do that? 😉
Let me know if you give me a follow, and I’ll follow you back!
