It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

electronic or print?

So which side of the fence are you on concerning ebooks vs. print?

I have both. Some of my favorite books are available as ebooks so I've purchased them again. It is comforting for me to know that I can "pick one up" when I'm far from home just because it is in my purse.

On the other hand. I like to look at my shelves, take a book down and remember what it was about. Maybe flip through it and read a bit. I like to curl up on the couch and feel the book I'm reading.

Then again, there are titles I'd buy as ebooks that I wouldn't purchase as print.

I don't know if I'll ever give up all my print books for electronic but dang, I love carrying my library with me in a space lighter than my cell phone!

Notice that I didn't say what device I used or where I did my ebook reading. Let's just say that the couch works no matter what and leave the device debate for later.

I'm splat bang in the middle of the fence. I'd say about 50/50. I like yhem both and sometimes it can be really hard to choose what format to buy a book in.
