I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading

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.
