Total Points

Ebooks: -2

Physical: 8

So in the end Physical are the WINNER!!!!!!

In my thoughts I believe that Hardback books are better than Paperback for every signal reason except for one. THE PRICES. But in the end Hardback book are always better.

Audiobooks are really great. You can multitask easily, while listing to your book.

For many people audiobooks are the best but for me I need to have it in my hand and read it. Its always been like that for me, but I do understand that for many people that they have busy lives and it is easier to listen to books. Maybe one day later in life I can enjoy audiobooks but today is not the day.

  1. Your points are totally right. I tried listening to audio books too but they aren’t for me. I can have the earpiece in my ears and then forget all about the story I’m listening to while I’m doing something else but they’re a really good alterative to ebooks for those that like them.

    1. That same things happens to me. For me thought it’s I need to see the words to process it. Yeah it’s kinda weird, but hey, that’s me.

      1. Same here. Or I could be reading another book at the same time and then all of a sudden I am into the book I am reading and not the book I am listing to.
