Let’s talk bookish is a weekly meme, created and hosted by J.R. @Eternity Books, here different topics will be discussed.
This weeks topic is ‘Favourite way of reading books’, I don’t really think I have a favourite way.. I mean all formats (physical, e-book, audio) have something good about them if you ask me!
Physical books are just the best, I love seeing the progress I’m making. And there is just something to holding a book in your hands! Also the smell of real books are the best! I guess the idea of reading a ‘real’ book sipping some tea under a blanket is just the best! It is just different with e-books haha!
I don’t have a preference between paperbacks and hardcovers, paperbacks are often a bit easier to take with you and less heavy, while hardcovers often lay open on their own which makes reading them a bit easier! But for in my shelves, I kinda love the mix between both haha!
E-books are mainly just very convenient! I love that my e-reader contains a lot of books and it weighs barely anything! Also if I just want to take my little bag with me, a physical books won’t fit, but my e-reader does 🙂 But what I do not really like about e-books is that you can not see the progress you’re making. My e-reader does give the percentage and page numbers and all, but it just doesn’t feel the same as seeing your bookmark slowly moving to the end of the book!
And for the
last format, audiobooks! I absolutely love audiobooks, I think since I
started listening to audiobooks my reading almost doubled! I listen to them all
the time, when I bike to and from school, in the gym, doing groceries, cooking,
when I’m scheduling posts! There are of course moments when I can’t stand
audiobooks for a couple of days and I just want to listen to music or watch
some Netflix, depending on what I’m doing. And then after a couple of days I
miss listening to a book and I will pick up another audiobook again haha!
But if I would have to choose between listening to a book or reading with my eyes, I would for sure choose reading with my eyes. I think reading with my eyes just gives me (even more) joy!
So conclusion, to me there is not really a favourite way, I enjoy all of them!
