Super

ProStores loads of books and is light

ConsNo page numbering and the books are pricey.

My reasons for having one Well, as many of you may know I am a book nut. I read on average around 2-3 books a week so reading is where I spend my money. My reading maybe comes from my family as most of them are avid readers. Reading to me is so relaxing and is what I like to do to unwind. There...

Excellent

ProBoth the book and the Kindle have both

ConsMissing the smell of books

Book worm alert I am an avid book reader. Ever since I was a child I have loved to sit and read, it was and still is the best way to escape from the world. In an average month I can get through 3 or 4 books depending on how much they have me absorbed into the storyline and even when I am at my...

ProYou can still read it

ConsNone really

Traditional Tree books have been around for so long, it would be very sad to see them totally disappear but with the age of the EBook now upon us, what chance does the traditional book have? I personally like both of them, they both have good and bad points. I have shelves full of books but I...

Satisfactory

ProSaves the rain forest.

ConsNot for me

When Ealing Broadway was looted one shop remained untouched, that of the Waterstones book store, the angry young underclass boys missing out on the chance to get as much Harry Potter they could handle and, of course, the school books they used to get with their now defunct EMA. That is not only...

Today we’re plagued with technology, are we not? It doesn’t even take a particularly observant person to notice. You can’t turn on your television or read a magazine without being told how the iPad is going to revolutionise everything or how the Amazon Kindle is going to deeply enhance your...

Without books, how would we get some idea of someone's personality? If I get invited over to someone's house, and I get a moment alone why they nip to the toilet or check on the dinner, I'm right over to their bookcase. Right there, you have an instant insight into a persons views, tastes and...

“Book vs eBook!”

ConsSee review

It has to be said I love to read and I have done since I was young. My bookshelf is crammed with classics, non-fiction ghost stories, romance, horror and evey catagory under the sun - even children books, but there not mine! (Although I do enjoy reading them with my daughter) and now technology...

Consbulky to carry when traveling

Books are still the best, in my opinion, but use e-books when you travel or when you're away from home especially for longer periods of time. With books, it is alright if you spill something on it, like the coffee or juice you are sipping while reading. You can dry it after that. Having that...
