Paper, electronic, audio... How do you read?
AUDIOBOOKS = LOVE
I would never have started listening to audiobooks if it hadn't been for blogging, and I am super grateful to you fellow audio lovers. It has become my first love.
Paper. Hey, I am old school and I love the feel of a book in my hands. I want to look at them, look at them on my shelves and have two pages open at the same time,
Electronic is last.I will always choose paper over it. It is faster for me, my e'reader is not the best. It is not a joy reading on it and I always forget faster what I have read.

I'll always prefer a physical book but audio and e-book is so much easier and I'm loving audiobooks right now. I don't think I would have read anything this year without them lolReplyDelete

Audio is life now.Delete
I feel the same way about audiobooks and I am so grateful to fellow book lovers for introducing me to audiobooks. I actually discovered them from a group of readers on Shelfari (before goodreads and before I blogged) and have never looked back!ReplyDelete
I discovered them pretty late, but I blame it all on not having the option for a higher speed thenDelete
I love all of them. And yesss my blogger friends gave me the love of audio!ReplyDelete
I never looked back :DDelete
Physical books are my favorite but I use my Kindle a lot too.ReplyDelete
Yay real booksDelete
Mostly audiobooks too these days. It used to be my side format, but I've come to listen to them almost exclusively now!ReplyDelete
I noticed I have not finish a print for 2 weeksDelete
Totally with you on all three and the placement of order.ReplyDelete
For me it's paper first, ebook and audio.ReplyDelete
Oh, sadness for audio last ;)Delete
Like you, I've gotta have physical books in hand, and love seeing them on my bookshelves. Audio and electronic don't work for me, but I fear that 30-40 years from now that may be the way to go for everyone. Hope you're doing well! Hugs, ROReplyDelete
Audio is the way :DDelete
And I guess one day I will like ebooks more
I'm the opposite since ebooks are what I read most, then audio, and then paper. I can't read mass market at all since my eye sight started going or I would probably read more paper books. :)ReplyDelete
I do understand thatDelete
My top preference is paper, most of my reading is done at night and I like being able to prop a book up on my lap while my husband watches a show. But audiobooks are perfect when I'm doing a project like painting or washing windows, so handy!ReplyDelete
Yes my audio time is always when I would not readDelete
I just read it took someone a decade to get used to audio books and I might also take that long to me to try them again because I really don't seem to like them.ReplyDelete
I love paper books and there wil never be a replacement for them but sometimes it's easier to get an ebook. It's pretty much what I read these days.
Have a lovely day.
I did not like them at all first, but then I realised that I could listen at 1.8 and boom :DDelete
I don't have the patience for audiobooks. lolReplyDelete
I like print books the best but have no more room for the books on my bookshelves. So I read ebooks more these days.
Audio is good for those moments when they just work :DDelete
I am the same about audiobooks - I love it. But I can't listen when I'm just "sitting on the sofa" and then I prefer ebooks. Love my Kindle.ReplyDelete
I can't either, that is just weird ;)Delete
