Readers which do YOU prefer?

Go to Toni’s blog and tell her 😀

ebook-vs-printI used to work with a girl who never bought books–NEVER bought books.

Before you light your torches and sharpen your pitchforks I should probably mention she does READ books–she reads all the time; however, she only reads e-books, and only if they are free.

I’ve known people on both sides of the spectrum: those who only read e-books (old coworker) and those who only read paperbacks (my mother).

But life changes… I can now pack virtually all of my worldly possessions in my car (I have no ‘home’ anymore and live with my daughter’s family) and I carry my library on my Kindle.
