Welcome to Fiction_TheNewReality's FIRST EVER Discussion Thursday!
So basically, every Thursday, I'll be talking about something new and I really want you guys to comment what you think! This week's topic is:
Physical Vs. Digital Books
I'm the type of girl who NEEDS a physical copy. Not only because it just feels a lot better to hold the book in my hands, but also because I also have eyesight problems. I've had glasses since I was four years old, and have very poor eyesight. My eyes get tired easily and reading on a tablet gives me headache and waves of nausea *EEEEK* In fact, I don't even own an e-reader because I've never felt the need to read e-books.
When I started blogging, I was super excited to get ARCs, but the first couple of weeks were disappointing, which I now know, is common. As a book blogger, Netgalley and Edelweiss are your best friends. So I began requesting and reading e-arcs from NG and EW. These past couple of months of blogging have been good to me, and I was lucky to be able to receive tons of physical ARCs from publishers and authors.
However, there are still some ARCs that I have no choice, but to read through Netgalley, such as WE WERE LIARS (so not complaining about this one!) and I'm trying to limit the amount of tablet reading I do.
I guess you could say that I'm a bit... old fashioned, and that I like physical copies MUCH MORE than digital copies. Being a book lover, yes, I do admit that I love the smell of books, the pretty covers that deserve to be stroked and the overall awesome bookishness of physical copies.
Also, a sweet little friend of mine decided to do a Discussion Thursday with me also! Hop on over and check out her blog here: http://lovingthelanguageofliteracy.blogspot.com/
Hope y'all have something to say:)
