Answers Please

I'm looking into reviewing a novel and passing a few on to my readers in a giveaway. My question is would you rather have the actual, physical book to hold in your hands or an e-book to read on your computer that I know you love so much?

And yes, another review and I know I said I hate reviews but I love to read and getting to read a new book for free, well, I'm nothing if not opportunistic!

Count me in!!! I read every day, love, love, love to read... And hard copy please... Love curling up with a good book, in a comfy chair, hot cup of tea.. "The Time Travelers Wife" is an awesome book, have you seen the movie? I have not, sort of afraid because the book was sooo amazing.

Totally an actual book. I collect books, take them with me in my purse, read them on the porch. I was just pitched to do a review/giveaway on a book, but he is offering e-book version. I told him I'd wait until he had more hard copies.

Actual book, definitely.

Real book for SURE.

And I better win one, darn it.

Ooooh, a real book in hand, for sure! I love to run a bubble bath, read, and ignore the shouts, groans, and howls coming from the rest of the house while I read a good book. On days like today the temptation to drop in the laptop might be too much!

I'm all for reading a real book in the bath as well! I'm in need of finding another good book, so tip me off to some of your good reads please!

Funny, this week someone emailed me about reviewing a book but told me he was out of hard copies and could only send me the e-version. And that was where he lost me.

I like a physical book. I don't have an ebook reader (and don't want one) because I have enough "equipment" to haul around. I don't want to sit with a laptop and have to read a screen.

So I guess, my answer...I like turning actual pages.

I'm more of a book in the hands kind of girl, I mean lets be honest, who doesn't enjoy filling the bath tub with bubbles and climbing in with a GREAT book :) I'm thinking my laptop may be in jeopardy if I were to climb into the bath with it! LOL

Real book. Kinder on the eyes and much easier to go back and figure out what you missed due to all the interruptions or just plain daydreaming ;)

Cassie said...

Real book no question. I considered getting that Kindle thing but with my luck the damn thing would crash with my book still inside and I'd have to kill someone.

actual book with paper pages.

Michelle said...

Book made out of paper mailed to me. I sit at the computer enough each day. I enjoy snuggling up in bed before sleeping and reading a good old fashioned book.

Debra said...

I refer the book, always. I like the tangible feel and frankly don't want to deal with charging something up, something breaking or just plain anything computerized.

I'm an Old Skool book in hand person.

So far, it looks like it's unanimous... definitely hands on real life book. I, too, like to lie in the tub with a good book and a nice glass of wine..... and promptly fall asleep!

I only read when my hubby is on the computer or I'm too lazy to go to the computer so I'm going with real book.

How are you feeling??
