So I have these internal talks about ebooks versus real books. I have an IPad and have heard how wonderful it is to have ebooks uploaded. They are great for traveling I have been told. They are less expensive a lot of the time.
So this past weekend, at the SCBWI-OR Spring Conference, I found a great new tool, The Emotion Thesaurus. When I looked on Amazon, it was $4.99 for the Kindle version. So I purchased it. I quickly discovered that while it will be handy for when I am traveling, I will be getting a paperback version soon.
Not only did I discover that I love the smell of the pages and the mere act of holding a book, I track across the page better with a real book. I find it hard to concentrate reading on a screen. It’s fine for emails and short reading.
So I will continue to support real books. I need them in my hands. What about you, ebooks or real books?
