Ebook Debate

I have a really bad headache right now, but I wanted to get this entry in. Not sure why as I have no followers. Guess this is yet another blog for me.

There's a lot of talk these days about ebooks versus real books. Personally, I still like real books. I have an iPhone, and I have several ereader apps on it. I don't favor one over the other, but it's very hard for me to read on that tiny screen. However, I can't justify spending another couple hundred bucks on a Kindle or Nook or whatever. I would rather spend that money on books! Doesn't that make sense? Because you have to buy the device and then buy the ebooks that seem to cost the same as the regular book. If they were cheaper, then I might consider it. But, for now, I prefer to have the actual printed book in my hands.

The other thing is that I have the habit of downloading the ebook and forgetting it's there. This could be said about my ever-expanding library of real books too. I've been trying to use my Good Reads lists to keep track of what I have. It's hard, though. I'm not the most organized person in the world, either.

So, give me an actual printed copy of a book any day.
