I like books. A lot. I always have one with me when I am out and about. You'll find one or two on my nightstand and an emergency book or three for when I am out of reading material.
My preference is for paperback books, as they are easier to hold and carry than the heavier, hard-covered versions.
If I own the book, I'll ask my husband to crack the spine so that I don't have to work so hard to keep the book open on the page that I'm reading.
Do you have an electronic book? Please take a moment and share your thoughts about the pros and cons of using that technology.
Addendum: I saw an amusing sign in the window of Black Bond Books that read "A.R.D.s sold here (Ancient Reading Devices)"!
