Wednesdays W’s ?!?

Jul 20, 2011

wednesdays w
 So this week we are hearing more and more about Borders and the closing of all the stores ?!? (so sad)  Is this due to more and more people buying e-books verses print, or is it people are buying more and more online verses in-store? Is it in part that you can now read books on so many devices such as phones, e-readers, tablets, etc? Do you still buy print, or have you gone to more e-books than anything?

So today’s Wednesday W’s is:
What format do you prefer when book buying / reading?

~E-Book ?!?
 ~Paperback ?!?
~Hardback ?!?
~Online ?!?
~In-Store ?!?

For me I do read e-books, but honestly I have yet to actually buy an ebook. What e-books I have, I have received for review. But if I’m spending my hard earned money, I want something physically in my hands. And don’t get me started on pricing! I saw someone yesterday say that one place sells new e-books for $18 - $20 each! That I just don’t understand.

And my shelves. Oh man! I love love LOVE setting out my books on all my millions of shelves (ok not that many, but a lot) so everyone can see them! They are just so pretty! Yes I am one of those that thinks a bunch of books lined up on a shelf so everyone can see them , is Wonderful!!! I love to share my love of reading. And very few people come into my house, see all my books and not start up a conversation about them and what I like to read!

So for me, even though e-books take up no space on my shelves, are easier to take with you in quantity if you are going somewhere, I am and always will have a place in my home for physical print books! *winks* especially if they have a HAWT Highlander on the front! *snickers*

So what about you?
What format do you prefer when book buying / reading?

I like a book in hand the most but won't pass up an e-book for my Kindle.

I love the feel of a print book in my hand. But I live in a small condo and we don't have a lot of space for bookshelves. We have 3 really pretty glass door shelves we picked up from IKEA (and I plan to pick more up when we buy a house - we're looking now and we're planning on including space for an office/library for me) but I only have so much space for my books. So, the majority of books I buy these days are eBook so that I can cart them around with me on my Kindle and I don't have to worry about having enough room in my house.

I'm really sad to see the end of Borders. It's like the end of a part of my childhood. I want to say "At least we still have B&N" but realistically, how much longer do we have B&N? If Borders shut down because people aren't buying as many print books, doesn't that mean other bookstores are next? :( god, I hope not. I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't walk into a bookstore and get my hands on a book any time I wanted.

Please excuse any typos. I'm on my iPhone and you know how that goes...
