Lately I’m really into reading eBooks on my phone or Kindle. I work full-time, so it’s difficult for me to always keep a physical book with me when I’m out. Especially if I’m reading a huge 700 page book or something. My phone, however, is always with me. It usually takes me a week or under to read a physical book, but lately I’ve been reading eBooks within the course of a day.
When there is a lull in my work, I can just pull out my phone and read on the Kindle app for a bit. When I go on my lunch break, I can read a bit. By the time I get home I’ve usually read the majority of the book and then I can lay in bed and finish it off. Easy peasy and totally convenient.
I’m about to say a blasphemous thing…but, I think I’m starting to prefer eBooks. JUST talking about the actual act of reading though.
The only thing is that when I really like a book, I want to own the physical. And it’s kind of wasteful because you buy the Kindle book then you turn around and buy the physical book, as well. And a lot of the Kindle books on the Amazon store are not cheap! Many of them are only a dollar less than the hardcover, and if that’s the case, Imma buy the hardcover!
It would be so awesome if when you bought a physical book (paperback or hardcover) you get a complimentary copy of the ebook. Why isn’t that a thing? They should put some kind of unique indicator in the books and then you can go to some website and enter your unique ID and get the eBook. I would buy so many more books! I mean, I already buy a lot, but I’d buy even more, lol.
