Feature and Follow Friday #7 2013

Posted June 28, 2013 by Lisa Mandina in / 14 Comments

Feature and Follow Friday is sponsored by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  The purpose of this event is to learn about the two featured bloggers each week, as well as to increase your own blog following by joining in on the fun! This week’s question/activity is:

Q: What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, eBooks, paperback etc?

Honestly, I still love actual, physical books.  Up to this point, I’ve mostly used my Nook e-reader for reading e-galleys.  I am beginning, with having overflowing bookshelves, to see that honestly, it might be just as good to get some books as e-books.  But so far, I really hate to spend on an e-book what it costs for a paperback.  So mostly I only buy e-books if they are on sale, or the little in between stories that only cost from $1-3.  I used to only enter giveaways that were for specific books too.  But now I’ve begun to see that if it is a GC for Barnes and Noble, so that I can order for my Nook, I will enter for it.  I also figure from now on, I may not buy actual books unless it is an author that I always buy for, or if I know I’ll get a chance to meet them and get it autographed.  I say that, but we’ll see how long that lasts.
How about you?  What kind of books do you prefer?
As for what type of follow I prefer, probably GFC.  But if you want to do something else, I like Networked Blogs and Bloglovin.

  1. 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.

    Happy Reading! 🙂

    • I was looking today and found a book I'd wanted to read for $2.99 as an e-book, so I'll have to buy it. I feel like publishers should make e-books at least a dollar or two cheaper than the paperback price just because you aren't getting an actual product to hold in your hands. Thanks for stopping by.
