Seriously. Bath readers will never abandon the book. We are finnnee, at least for the moment. I mean, when they invent a waterproof eReader things will get interesting but until then! Stay safe!

Any other issues you’ve noticed with either type of reading platform? I find when reading in bed? If I drop a book on my face after accidentally dozing off it totally wakes me up whereas an eReader hits me and I just snooze away. Also, books are probably the only reason I have (a tiny amount of) upper body strength. Um.

    LOVE IT. As always. You are so awesome!

    The illustrations and the point made are wonderful. It happens. Maybe that is why I like showers.

  • Old Kitty

    Now these are EXACTLY the reasons why print books rule!! They are more waterproof, a cure for narcolepsy and great for upper muscle strength and toning! 🙂

    Beat these, e-readers! Hah! Yay!

    Take care

    A ray of hope. How am I expected to dog-ear a page I can't turn?

    Lol I almost broke my nose once when I fell asleep with a book.

    I was on my back, thinking that the tension of keeping the thick Math textbook in the air above my face would keep me awake for the time before I had to go write a math test.

    … BIG mistake.

    Sierra sent me here and OMG giggle fest!

    My issue with the e-readers is that I have a good place memory. In otherwords if I want to fin a specific scene in the book I'm reading I know around about where to find it in my paper book. trying to go back and forth on the e-reader (Yes I have a plain on with no touch screen) … yeah I just can't do it! *pout*

    Anyway Via paper books! (even if I don't read in the bath). :}

    OMG MIA. How did I miss this most excellent of blogposts?! I am going to be in suspense FOREVER about Twigs: what to do and where to find them.

    Also, I agree with the above comment re: flipping back and forth to find particular scenes. You cannot beat a physical book in that regard! That is why I WAY prefer doing my research and primary source reading with paper books instead of the computer or ereader. SO much easier to refer back to things without losing your place!
