This is a question I had to think about for a while. I love my books, love to be surrounded by them. I love meandering around in bookstores looking at the cover art, buying a few that appeal to me and other books that sound interesting to me. I would miss all of that if I only read my books from an e-reader.With the advent (and growing popularity) of eBooks, I’m seeing more and more articles about how much “better” they can be, because they have the option to be interactive … videos, music, glossaries … all sorts of little extra goodies to help “enhance” your reading experience, rather like listening to the Director’s commentary on a DVD of your favorite movie.How do you feel about that possibility? Does it excite you in a cutting-edge kind of way? Or does it chill you to the bone because that’s not what reading is ABOUT?
Will I ever buy an e-reader? It isn't something that is in my immediate future. I love reading the books, holding them, turning the pages, and looking on my bookshelves to decide which one I will read next.
Which do you prefer, eReaders, or Books?
