Follow Friday #50

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

~This Week's Features:

~This Week's Question:
What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, eBooks, paperback etc? 

~My Answer:

My favorite format is hardcover. I am very aware how technology is taking over. Everything is at the touch of a screen. You can download any book in seconds...SECONDS! It's crazy! And even though I find it very convenient its just not the same as a hardcover copy! The joy of opening a brand new published book with its smell, touch and the awesome sound of the cover's turning. I know my apple devices have the page cover thing too but its just not the same and will never be. I like the kindle because you can read in the dark without light don't need to worry about your book running out of battery ;P

I like paperbacks too I just like hardcovers better because they are more durable therefore being more immortal. They last longer. I swear if they take away all physical copies and transfer everything to device I will start a rebellion! It would be one more step into the dystopia format going on today. *shivers* I may not be one kick ass girl with bad ass combat skills but I will die fighting that cause ;D

What about you?

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!! 


  1. I love the real thing too. The convenience of the Kindle is great (and so is the price), but I still love holding a real book in my hands. New GFC follower. Happy Friday!

  2. I can't decide which one I like better! They're so many pros and cons to both! I guess I lean more towards physical copies though because you get the full reading experience. You know what I mean?

  3. I agree, I love having physical copies, no matter how convenient eBooks may be.

  4. Hopping through. I certainly love the convenience of having books in an instant. No driving 20 minutes to the bookstore or waiting 2 days for Amazon.

  5. YAY!!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one to say I love the smell of a new hardcover book!!!! eBooks are great, but there is nothing like placing your brand new hardcover book on your bookshelf *sigh*

  6. I know what you mean - it's a pain when my Kindle dies when I'm in the middle of reading a book (rarely happens, but it has!). I still love the printed book despite my new addiction to ebooks!

  7. Couldn't agree more. Hardcovers are my favorite. And great for decor. Here is my FF Old follower.

  8. eReaders have been winning for me due to the multitude of books I can carry...

  9. I still refer to hardcovers and paper backs as the "real" books. Thought ebooks are the most convenient, physical copies always win me over.

  11. I totally get that - paperbacks are easier to carry around and acquire, but hardbacks are just more durable. Technology is kind of taking over the world, huh?

  12. I prefer hardcovers because I get so annoyed when a paperback comes in the mail dented. Even the smallest dent bothers me so much and I love how hardcovers are harder to damage. Old follower :)

  14. I totally agree, hardcovers are the way forward! eReaders are bound to break every now and then but if you treat your book right it will stay in tact forever :) New follower via GFC.
