I own both a collection of books and a Kindle Fire. My book shelf has both paperback and hardback copies, most being Dystopia novels or Fantasy. They do take up a lot of space but I love my collection(and adding to it). All of the books with their perfect spines and covers lined up just the way I like them. With Kindle's, they're light, can hold so many books and it just stays the same weight and you don't have to worry about folding a page or ruining the spine because you simply just hold it in your hand.

I think that there are great things about e-readers though. I love my Kindle, it's definitely a whole new way of reading. I enjoy the fact I can highlight things and the swift one movement of a finger to turn the page. The lightweight and the amount of books one small tablet can hold. I think they introduce reading to so many more people-one being my sister. Seeing the jump In technology makes people want to buy one and I think it's so important for people to read(Or they are missing out)I love books and my e-reader but find that nothing can really beat a book. It may seem old-fashioned but that is the way it should stay! A good old book! Wondering around bookshops.
So, what do you prefer?
Books or E-reader or do you like both?
And how about the library opening with no books in?
Here, there are supposed to be 12cm's of Snow tonight so I'm probably going to be snowed in! Loads of time to read then!
