Ebooks vs Paper Books


One book (Hilary Mantell’s Bring Up The Bodies) an inch and a half thick, chunky, heavy, fills my bag;

982 books, less than a centimetre thick, slim, lightweight slips into a jacket pocket.

That is why I love my ebook.

But having the same book in paper and electronic format, I’d still always prefer the paper. The weight, the smell, the feel of the paper under the fingertips. A lovely immersive sensuous experience. And one I can take to the bath with me! However I wrap my ebook up in food bags and freezer bags, it just doesn’t like it!
