Personally I prefer printed books, but my place gotten so full of printed books I can only buy so many more before the weight of the books fall through the floor. The vast majority of my books purchased these days are ebooks. I belong to numerous book lists where I get free or great deals on ebooks. These ebooks include Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Google, and other website ebooks.

I have over 2,000 ebooks on Kindle alone. With the other platforms, I have 500+ ebooks that aren’t part of my Kindle collection.

    • You are welcome. I prefer print books, but I am afraid one day my print book collection would fall through the fall which is why usually go eBook route. I do make exceptions. Years ago, I found a book where the eBook was only $5 less than the print version. In that case, I purchased the print copy. After a few years, I checked the price again and the eBook was more reasonably priced so I purchased it and gave my print copy to a friend.

      • Good coffee-table books, as well as books as gifts, are always great purchases too. I have a pictorial book about England, a poetry and art book created by a local poet and a visual artist, and a field guide of the Birds of Newfoundland as coffee-table books. I love them and never tire of flipping through them.
