Each week, two blogs are featured, one at AlisonCanRead and one at Parajunkee's View. So make sure to hop over to those blogs to check out this week's Features.
This week's Features are:
This week's question is: What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, paperback, ebook??
I have to say that I read more ebook format than anything else lately. However, I actually LOVE physical books. I love the feel of the paper, the smell...it all enhances the experience for me. :) I do prefer hardcover or trade paper format over mass market but that's mostly to do with the fact that I require reading glasses - I actually have no-line bifocals!! So I like a bigger book because it generally has bigger font! *giggles*
So what about y'all? Which format do y'all prefer??

Happy Friday! I prefer reading paperbacks. I love the feel of real pages in my hand. I read eBooks sometimes, though. I think they're always faster to finish and you can easily highlight the passages you like.ReplyDelete
My FF @ The Creative Forum
Happy Reading! :)
Happy Friday to you too, Kaykay! I'm glad you're still reading physical books too. Although I agree with you about the reading faster and easier highlighting. You should see my hardcovers with sticky tabs hanging out with all my notes! ;)Delete
I resisted for a long time, but once I finally made the move to e-books I fell in love. You can take an entire library with you, buy straight from the device, and change the font size! Happy Friday Brandee!ReplyDelete
Traci @ Mad Hatter Reads
I fell faster but probably because I worked at a bookstore that was selling them. :) It is nice to be able to carry hundreds of books on vacation, Traci! ;) Have a great weekend!Delete
I used to love mass market the best, but I've become more of a trade paper these days. Hardcover is nice for sitting on the shelf, but not so easy to read.ReplyDelete

I used to read MM too but had to give them up because of the font size. Wearing glasses helps but it's still hard! LOL :) Thanks for hopping by!Delete
Haha! Nice! I love me the real books too. But I actually love Mass Market the best because those can so easily fit into my purses and are not heavy! That way, no matter where I am, I can have a book! I still carry one with me on occasion! hardcovers and trades are a little heavier and require a bigger purse, but it can still be done! Just with difficulties!ReplyDelete
Here's my Follow Friday

Old Follower :)
I'm glad to hear that physical books aren't going away...there's too many of us that love 'em! Thanks for stopping by, Jessica! Have a great weekend!Delete
Thanks so much for hopping by, Shane! I hope you enjoy your weekend!Delete
Thanks for the follow, favor returned via GFC.ReplyDelete
There is just something so enticing about an actual physical book in ones hands - that will never change. But readers are convenient, I must admit!
Have a great weekend!
Julie @Full Moon Dreaming
I agree. Thanks, Julie!Delete
I prefer a physical copy in my hands, but my wallet seems to prefer the ebook :) New bloglovin follower. Happy Friday!ReplyDelete
There is that! ;) Thanks for hopping by, Meredith.Delete
I remember your haul after going to the book/author convention. You do love your books! I love any way I can get my hands on a great read. My library has an excellent ebook selection, but you can also request purchase a book and it goes straight to your wait list! Oh so awesome. I'm just a book whore, let's face it. Have a great weekend, Brandee!!ReplyDelete
Yeah, you got me there, Robyn! Oh, and I love my local library as well. I haven't even checked out their ebook selection but I can't go in there without leaving with several books. It's an addiction...I freely admit it. Oh, okay, I'm a book whore too! ;) Hope your weekend was splendid!Delete
Thanks for stopping by my FF. Followed back via GFC and BloglovinReplyDelete

Elena @ Book Lady's Reviews
Thanks so much, Elena!Delete
I really don't like the trade paperback I feel like their too big and I actually wasn't aware that the printing of the actual words were much bigger on those LOLReplyDelete
My Friday Meme
So, just so you know I'm a total book geek...the font is a bit larger and the paper is a bit whiter which helps as well. :) I do agree that MM size is very portable though. I used to read them all the time. My eyes are just a lot older now. LOLDelete
Thanks for hopping by!
I love physical books, but I read mostly ebooks since that's the format 90% of my review books come in. Thanks for stopping by my FF! :DReplyDelete
Yeah, that's exactly why I read so many ebooks too. Thank you for hopping by. I appreciate it! Happy Monday!Delete
