BTT: Paper Or Plastic? (May 31, 2007)

This week's question

Do you read e-Books?
Yes, I do and usually in PDF format.

If so, how? On your computer, or a PDA?
I read on my computer. I don't really like doing this though as I prefer to thumb through pages. Smell the paper... Nothing beats that experience of holding a physical book...

I used to own a PDA and at that point of time, downloaded lots of e-Books including the Bible into the device. About 2 years later, I sold my PDA and stopped using such device anymore. Besides e-Books, I 'read' audio books too.

Or are you a paper purist? Why?
I'm not sure I am a paper purist but I love shopping for, and reading actual books. Nothing, in my humble opinion, beats a physical book -- paper and all. I'd go for paper anytime. I would love to hear the opinion of others too.

Happy BTT, everyone!

Book Quote:

"For books are more than books, they are the life
The very heart and core of ages past,
The reason why men lived and worked and died,
The essence and quintessence of their lives."
