Follow Friday

For all aspiring writers, I'm teaching a blurb writing class starting Monday. It will also be a crash course in plot, and it's the method that got me a 50% full request rate.

Follow Friday is hosted by Alison and Parajunkee.

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

This is a hard one. I think I prefer pretty hardbacks, but ebooks are easier to read. I can hold the kindle w/ one hand while chasing ELF with the other, and I can make the font larger if I need to.


  1. eReaders are definitely more convenient. I like physical books better myself.

  2. I've never read on an e-reader, but I get why they're so popular- it's easy and accessible and all :) But I think nothing beats physical books! New follower :)

  3. Same here. Paper books are wonderful, but ebooks are a lot more convenient. :-)

    Your course sounds awesome.

  4. I agree. I just love a hardcover or paperback, but the Kindle is just so convenient! New GFC follower.


  5. Hi I'm new to blogging and following thru from Parajunkie's follow friday.
    You can follow me back at "SnowRavyn's Reviews"

  6. I do like being about to change the font size, especially when my eyes are tired.
    Here is my FF.

  7. It depends. If I'm sitting and reading, I like a hardcover. If I'm on the go, I want a paperback. And if I'm cooking or busy doing a ton of things I want my Kindle so it can read to me. So I need all three. :)

  8. I was against ebooks for the longest time. There's just something to be said about holding a hardcover book in your hand and feeling the pages as you turn them. But after Husband's continuous teasing that I would soon need one whole room for books alone, I decided to give the Kindle a chance. To my surprise, I like it. I agree with the lot of you that ebooks are more convenient, and easier to read when you are eating a messy sandwich that requires two hands. Also when I'm on vacation next week, I will be able to fit more clothes in my suitcase since it won't be loaded down with books. Although, I don't think I will ever stop buying books, especially for my favorite series, but I fear I will soon need multiple book shelves for my ebook cloud. -RB Austin
