Some chit chat.

The other night I had just finsihed reading a book and I glanced over to my nightstand to see which one I’d read next.

I had to laugh. There are two stacks there. One is books I’ve finished and need to write reviews for and one is the next books in line to be read.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned that I prefer to read print books over eBooks. Not to say I don’t read eBooks. I love my Kindle and wouldn’t have discovered so many amazing authors and books without using it.

It’s just that I find it easier to flip back and forth in a print book when I want to check back on something I’d read. Plus I love the smell of them. LOL

My kindle lets me highlight quotes I want to glance at when writing a review, but print books are a different story!

how i read books 006

That’s what some of them look like after I mark points in the book I want to reference in my reviews.

Something else interesting. Many times, when I’m writing my reviews, I don’t even end up using these tagged sections. I just get going on the review and don’t need them. But they are handy for adding quotes I liked.

So, which do you prefer. Print or Ebooks? And do you use highlights or bookmarks?

I’ll be hopping over to check out your Sunday posts so be sure to leave me your link!

I was a bit lighter on the amount of reviews this week. I’ve been averaging around seven a week and needed some brain down time. LOL
