Hey everyone! I'm Sinning Trashcan and I am gathering data for a research project I'm conducting for my college Journalism class. I am studying whether people prefer eBooks or Hardbound books, and I would love to hear your feedback.

If you want to, please comment why you chose what you did. It is optional, but it would be great data to add to my research. It would be much appreciated!

I'm officially free!!!! I can start getting more posts out regularly, but now I have a job, so replies might still take a while. I can definitely post more though~

physical copy, bc i mostly read manga, and i only have my iPad now, which i dislike having to install apps on (id probably need an app to get books on there), and plus i just really like the feel of an actual book in my hands, and the new book smell and everything

i'd personally rather have a physical book because I'm scared of somehow losing all my ebooks or my account or whatever. Irrational, i know, especially considering how many actual books ive lost in the past, but that's my thought process for ya.

while ebooks are more convenient for obvious reasons, I don't think it'll ever stop me from preferring physical copies. although I do prefer to save my physical book money for stories I actually know and love.

definitely physical copies. I mean, ebooks are indeed more convenient because you can take loads of books with you and do not need much space, but I just love to hold a book in my hands and read it. Like the paper and the smell of a new or old book, you will never get that with an ebook. Also, no blue light that exhausts your eyes.
Plus, some series have these nice spines that sometimes give you a whole picture of something, again something you won't get with an ebook.

    • For me, this totally varies. Overall, though, I would say physical copies. I'd prefer physical copies because I find it easier to highlight and makes notes, as well as to navigate as compared to eBooks.

      This being said, for non-class related things, I prefer eBooks. It's just easier and if I'm reading for pleasure / not for class, then I don't really need the physical copy c:

You're a drive real slow,
Down a no lane road
To a house on a hill
Where the wild things grow
You're wake up in pajamas,
Not a trace of makeup on ya
You're a help her fix it,
Having breakfast with my momma
You're a take back home, home, home girl
Home, home, home girl
Take back home, home, home girl
Home, home, home girl
You're the kind I wanna take a ride with
Sit by on a Friday night
In the stadium lights, side by side
All the ladies like,
"Yeah, she's doing just fine"
Everybody in the bleachers,
They all gon' want to meet ya
From my teachers to my preacher,
My little crowd pleaser
Parading with you
Feeling homecoming cool, yeah

I'm a hardcore manga reader, and since most manga I read are still in the right to left format of Japanese books, it's really hard for me to read manga as ebooks, so I definitely prefer physical copies.
