So the latest book I just finished was Weddings Can Be Murder by Christie Craig. I was reading it on my handy-dandy Nook Color. While I was reading that book and I had also started The Serpent’s Tale by Ariana Franklin which I have as an actual book. I noticed some serious differences between reading an actual book and an eBook. One really noticeable difference for me is the fact that I can’t read a normal book for long periods of time. I start reading and I get so sleepy. I don’t know if it is because I spend some serious time in front of my computer so the screen on a Nook helps keep me awake. But as soon as I start reading a normal book… the yawns start and my eyes get heavy. I normally don’t read a normal book unless I’m at work because I have to stay awake either way, but at work is the only time that I get to really enjoy a normal book read.
I love my Nook Color, but there is still something about holding an actual book that I just can’t get over. The sound of turning the page and on the look out for cute bookmarks. It brings me back to when I was a child and they would have book sales at the library of our school. We could buy books for the change that our parents gave us. It is one of those memories that will always be with me whenever I am reading. Which is why I am normally reading two books at a time. One on the eReader and the other just a normal book. Because sometimes you just need to get back to your roots. 😀
Which do you prefer?
