I will always be a fan of physical books in that you get to grow a collection and it looks cool for decorating (and smarty pants show-off purposes), but you can’t deny the convenience of having an ebook reader. I am in love with my Kindle touch. The best part about it is the anti-glare so you can read your book outside and the next best part is the ease at getting a new book instantly. I tend to stick to buying ebooks that are under $8. Any higher and I’d rather just own the physical copy of the book. It makes me angry that some ebooks cost more than a paperback but I suppose it’s all about the convenience factor.
I try to buy the actual books of authors I love so I can grow my collection, but I am open to buying ebooks by unknown authors or free/super cheap ebooks from Amazon to read on my Kindle. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by a few of these. Just keep in mind that you often get what you pay for with free ebooks. I’ve had my fair share riddled with horrendous typos and grammatical errors which frustrated me so much that I asked for a refund on a $6 book. But don’t get me wrong, the majority are pretty good.
