If you want to use any of this material contact me and there is a very good chance I will say YES.
However, if you just cut and paste into your own blog or whatever and pass it off as your own then there's a very good chance I will find out. Don't fall into the trap of thinking the internet is so vast and expanding so fast (note the fancy internal rhyme)] that no one will know.
I have no choice Bridget, I had to get an eReader because my allergy to the dust and ink fumes from real books was giving me breathing issues – up until just over two years ago, I was a ‘real’ book reader…
What a nightmare allergy for a reader – you must bless ebooks.
Indeed I do Bridget, otherwise it would have been audio books for me and narrators are not always good enough to keep my interest 😀
We buy ebooks as we have run out of bookcase space – we have 7 filled to capacity. Plus the convenience is wonderful and for my migraines, background colour and font adaption are incredibly helpful.
Plenty of positive arguments for but does this mean that you no longer re-visit the books in all your bookcases…?
I would never reject a book, m’lady. That is simply incomprehensible! #happyaddict 🙂
Interesting you prefer ebooks for non-fiction and print books for fiction. I’m the opposite. Perhaps it’s because I have an old ereader, but I find I flip back and forth, plus skim read, in non-fiction so find the paper copy easier.
It’s an interesting issue, though, especially when we read so many opinions that the print book is dead.
I’m not sure why I do – but I don’t think I’m alone. I think print is far from dead – most people seem to use different formats for different purposes.
Nice post! I buy printed books after I read them on the e-reader and want them to sit pretty on my shelf. But I prefer e-reader because I’m faster at reading when am. And my absolute fave books I have to buy in person 🙂
You are a Reader with a capital R. Love the fact that you have to physically go to a bookshop to buy the books you love the most…
