Printed Books Giveaway Hop (Ends 2/7) WW

I am one who has come to prefer e-books.  Mostly, it is because I have so many books, that I have run out of room.  However, there is still something special about having a hard copy.  And not everyone has access to an e-reader.  And there is nothing easier than sharing a printed book with someone.  When I am in a classroom and reading an e-book, I get the following response:  "Is that a kindle fire?"  Most don't really seem to ask what book I am reading.  However, if it is a printed book, all I have to do is show them the cover in order for them to know what I am reading.

Anyway, enough of that.  I am participating in this printed books giveaway hop, and I have decided to award two international readers their choice of a printed book $10 or less.  You are eligible to win if book depository or fishpond ships to you (of course, if you are U.S., I will probably use amazon).  All you need to do is enter the rafflecopter by 9 P.M. Pacific time on February 7, and you are in to win!  Don't forget to hop on for even more chances to win prizes.

  1. I never thought I'd say this but due to lack of space I come to appreciate eBooks more and more. Though nothing beats a beautiful hardcover volume on the shelf either! So, I can't really decide which I prefer as both have got something going for them.

  3. I used to prefer print books but then I had eye surgery and can only muster up the patience for ebooks.

  4. Maybe if I had an e-reader like a kindle I would say e-books because you can read every book on it but I don't have one so I'll say - print books.. somehow I pay more attention to what I read in a book rather than on the screen!

  18. Print! Partly because I don't actually have a tablet or a kindle so ebooks are wicked impractical, but also because they're so pretty, and being able to physically hold and collect them makes them so much more special.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love print because I feel like I really get into the book but I love the kindle for reading in bed and it holds so many books!

  24. I like both for different reasons. There is nothing that compare to the feel and scent of a print book in your hands. Plus I love to thumb through a book to reread my favorite scenes. But with ebooks, you can literally have your entire library in the palm of your hands. Ebooks also give you the privacy to read anything anytime.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Printed books. It's just a grand thing to have an actual book in your hands, be it a paperback or a hardback.

    ReplyDelete

  30. Printed = the smell and feel of adventure.

    Electronic = burning eyes and a cramping scroll finger. Not to mention words that can be taken away if Amazon so pleases.

    Books happily collect dust until I wish to read them again, and again, and again.

    I definitely prefer print, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like print books better, I think they are easier on my eyes.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. Print definitely :) I just love reading a physical book.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I prefer print. I love being able to hand over a book that I have loved, especially since I'm a preservice English teacher!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love to touch and turn the pages, I love to see my reading progression by watching the bookmark position while the book is closed.
    I love to collect books, to arrange them on my bookshelves, order them in my personal way and then just watch them everytime I want.
    I love the fact that my room smell and look like a library.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love print books, but ebooks can be very convenient. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Although I own a Kindle (and, honestly, LOVE it), I prefer printed books. The sight of having them on my shelves and the feeling of holding a new book between my hands and smell it, it’s simply, perfection.
    Thanks for the giveaway! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Print books! Just...because. Ebooks are more advantageous, yes. And as a reader from Europe who has to order her books online and wait at least a week for them to arrive in the mail, I see the appeal. But I'd take the hassle over ebooks any day. Nothing against ebooks! I think they're great and I even read one from time to time.

    Thanks for the giveaway and for making it international! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. So far, I still prefer print and read more in that format. Ebooks are great for travel, but difficult to refer back to.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love them both. I love my kindle & I love reading regular books too. it just depends on what mood I am in & if I am reading at night or during the day. I find during the day I tend to read more of a regular book where as at night i read on my kindle.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love, Love, LOVE my e-reader and is great to take on vacations and out and about town. But I think I will always prefer/miss paper books. There is just something about holding a book, smelling the crisp pages, physically turning a page....

    ReplyDelete
  99. I've mentioned on a few sites in the hop ... so far, I've never had a flight attendant come up to me and say, "Sir, we're about to land. You're going to have to shut your paperback." BUT I have been listening to Audiobooks over the past few years, and have enjoyed the addition to my "reading" tremendously.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I prefer print books because I simply love the feeling of them.

    ReplyDelete
  101. It depends, I love my Kindle. It makes reading easier. If the book has a really nice cover then I usually buy it. Or if I have the first book in paperback then I will keep buying the print books.

  113. I so love printed books~! I love to feel them in my hands as I read them and turn the pages. I feel more connected to them that way. But also to see them on my book shelf just makes them even more special. I do have a Kindle app on the laptop but sadly I haven't gotten to read the books on there as of yet, because I have to read my paperbacks first.

  118. E-books because it is just much simpler to travel with, but if I really enjoy a book I will go get a paper physical copy. It is much easier for me to thumb through or even simply find a paper book than it would be on my e-reader

    ReplyDelete
  119. I love "real" books. There is just a different connection between me as a reader and a printed book and the distance I feel toward words on a screen. Holding my favorite books makes me happy or comforted or brings back memories. I doubt I'll ever feel that way about a Kindle or iPad.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I prefer print book, because i really like when i receive physical book with my hand, to feel and see with my eyes. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I like them both equally. I have a soft spot for regular ol' print books so always love the feeling of holding them and turning pages and love spending hours in book stores, but it's also nice being able to curl up in the chair with the light weight kindlefire holding 40 books at a time. I guess I'm undecided but wouldn't like to have to live without either. I just really, really, really like books and reading!!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I prefer both but normally if I read a book on my kindle and really love it then I end up buying it in actual book form, mostly hardbacks.

  170. I Prefer Printed books because nothing beats the smell of a new book or the feel of your favorite book, the anticipation and excitement of turning the page, and letting someone borrow a book so the can enjoy the book just as much as you did. (I wouldn't loan anyone my kindle or tablet just saying)Printed books are going to be what stands the test of time. I actually just had this conversation with a friend of mine about a month ago who prefers digital to prints. A very debatable topic and fun to discuss if you ask me.

  171. I prefer print because after being on a computer all day, the last thing I want to do is stare at another electronic device. Reading is my escape.

  179. Print books! :) The smell, the way they feel, the ability to see them worn from being reread over and over again--all of that appeals to me. Ebooks could never quite match that for me.

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  180. Print~ because I love the weight of a book in my hand and turning the pages. Plus when I want to escape I want to breakaway from electronic devices in general. I'll always prefer a printed book but I still love my Kindle for when I go out of town and need something for the trip without packing a stack of books. :)

    Thank you for the lovely hop!

  181. Honestly I love having a physical book in my hands, but I'm buying more and more ebooks because they are a lot cheaper than paperbacks.

  182. It depends, I love print books, I like the smell of them, the way they look on my shelf, the feel of them in my hands but I love the convenience of ebooks, there's no strain to hold the book especially if it's a large book and I love that there's a built in dictionary. I think I would always prefer to own physical copies of my favourite books. Thank you. :)

  190. I like ebooks for their ease and convenience, but you just can't beat the smell and feel of really being able to get lost in a print book and it is the best way to model reading to my children so they pick up and read their own books.

  192. I like both. I actually listen to the majority of the books I read. I can listen while I work. :) but I also read in the physical and digital formats. I don't have a preference. All I care about is how I can get a hold of the book easiest.

  193. I prefer print books. I'm a tactile person, and I love the feel and weight and smell of a printed book. Plus, unlike ereaders, printed books can easily be resold once purchased, and at the end of their lives, they can be recycled. The only reason I even have an ereader is that it's easier to bring that along with me when I'm traveling than an entire suitcase of printed books.
