Feature & Follow #14

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read.

Q: What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, eBooks, paperback etc?

My absolute favorite is Hardcover. There's just something about reading a printed book that beats an eBook every time. The weight of the book, the feel of the pages... Heaven! If it's available in hardcover then that is the format I buy. Thank goodness for the book club I belong to, and their twice a year buy one get one free sales, and my Barnes & Noble membership or I would be completely broke! What can I say? I'm a cheap snob. My snobbish side gets the hardcover books and my cheap side pays full price for nothing. photo smiley.png

If my only options are paperback or an eBook, then I pick an eBook. Their are couple of reasons why. Space is an issue. I already have stacks of hardcovers, I do not need to be swimming in a sea of paperbacks too. I like to read paperbacks the proper way, with complete disregard to the spines. Bending the pages back so you're only looking at half the book. Needless to say durability is an issue. I love my Nook though. I have almost 200 books on it and couldn't be happier. 

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
    • (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
    • (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
    • Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
    • Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.
    • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
    • Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI”
    • If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers
    • If you’re new to the follow Friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

  2. Nice! I love hardcovers too! They're just so elegant and pretty! MM paperbacks are always a fave since they can fit into my purses! That way I have a book no matter where I am!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Old Follower :)

  3. I totally agree. Hardcovers are also so much more durable!

    New follower, check out my FF. it's #25

  4. While I love print, and beautiful covers, ebooks are currently winning just due to the amount of books I can carry around with me. I may be a book hoarder.

    1. I'm definitely a book hoarder. :)

  5. I love the beautiful covers on a hardback. Ebooks can't replace that, but I do like the convenience of them. New bloglovin follower (old GFC though) Happy Friday!
