Printed Books Giveaway

This giveaway hop is hosted by I Am A Reader Not A Writer


Hi all! Welcome to the Printed Books Giveaway. So, I’d just like to say that even though I used to loathe reading books in e-book format, I’ve (slowly and steadily) grown to like (still not love) reading e-books. That said, I still have a very special place in my heart for printed books. There’s something about having a physical book in your hands. Maybe it’s the fact that you can smell it. Or maybe it’s that you can feel the crisp (or sometimes worn and yellowed) pages between your fingers. Either way, reading printed books is more personal for me. Thus my eager participation in this fabulous giveaway. *grin*

  1. I prefer print over e-books. It just feels right having the book in my hand but e-books are convenient at times. :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Definitely print books. I like the feel of them in my hands and I like to see them pile up after I' finished reading. It gives me a sense of accomplishment.

  3. It depends! I love the portability of e-books when I travel, but when I'm home I love visiting the library and bringing home piles of books and stacking them next to me as I dive in.

  6. Printed = the smell and feel of adventure.

    Electronic = burning eyes and a cramping scroll finger. Not to mention words that can be taken away if Amazon so pleases.

    Books happily collect dust until I wish to read them again, and again, and again.

  10. Print books, because I love the feel of the physical book in my hands. And personally, I think the covers look much prettier in print. :)

  11. I love both printed and e-books, the only time I really have a preference is when it comes to favorites I must have a copy on my shelf. If it's a book I'm unsure of, I go for the cheapest route, which is usually e-books.

  12. Printed, because (this is really weird) I like to be able to see how far through I am, not just a page number.

  13. I love, love, love books of verse. Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. I like both for different reasons. There is nothing that compare to the feel and scent of a print book in your hands. Plus I love to thumb through a book to reread my favorite scenes. But with ebooks, you can literally have your entire library in the palm of your hands. Ebooks also give you the privacy to read anything anytime.

  24. Printed books – there's just something about holding something in your hand and feeling the pages as you turn them. And then of course, spending hours just gaping at the gorgeous cover and texture :P Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  25. I like both but would rather a physical book.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like both. I actually listen to most of the books I read because I can do that at work.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I really don't prefer one over the other for the most part. Sometimes I like my ebooks, and sometimes I like my print books. I will admit though if a book is a favorite I will always "need" to have it in a print copy so it's possible that I might still have a bit of a love for print copies. It is nice to be able to hold so many on the kindle though for space reasons. I think I just like to read so much I am just glad to get books!

  28. I like both, but I do have a slight preference for print. When I like an ebook enough, I'll buy it in print.

  30. Print because you can hold them in you hands and actually turn the pages!

  31. This looks like an awesome book!

  32. I love prints because nothing beats the smell of a new book or the feel of your favorite book. They will be what stands the test of time. And I just don't feel the same excited anticipation of turning the page with a e-reader. And if you really love a book your not going to hand your kindle/nook/tablet etc. over to someone to borrow so they can experience the enjoyment you had with the book. Lets face it prints are better than digital. Period.

  42. Combo, it depends…
    Love my paperbound books. Nothing like turning pages, holding a real book. Can get cheaper books on sale, @ second-hand bookstore-as well as older books there too- & nothing beats $1 hardback or $0.50 paperback books at Goodwill or Salvation Army stores.
    But I’m running out of room in my house, so ebooks are great. Love how easy it is to put my kindle in my purse & have several books in one small space. Many ebooks are cheaper than their paperbound versions. (But the famous authors often cost full price. Would love to have that explained to me.)
    The one thing better than second-hand bookstore- FREE books!! Either publisher specials or things like amazon deals where first released books are free are just great. I won’t even admit to how many of those I have on my kindle account, lol.
    So I will never be all one type of reader…
