Feature and Follow Friday - January 30th, 2015

So, I went from not doing this meme at all the last half of 2014, to now I started my first Friday of 2015, and now the last Friday of January 2015 doing a meme I used to be pretty regular with.  But I am definitely open to new followers, so this will be a fun time to join in again. And once again, I'm in between reviews.

Feature and Follow Friday is sponsored by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  The purpose of this event is to learn about the two featured bloggers each week, as well as to increase your own blog following by joining in on the fun! This week's question/activity is:

Hard print (real thing) or Kindle/Nook, which is your favorite?

This is an easy, but detailed answer for me.  I prefer to own an actual book.  I want to put it on my shelf and be able to look at it.  However, what I love about my Nook is that I can get so many more advanced e-galleys that way than I ever did as actual physical ARCs.  Plus, I've gotten a lot of free e-books, ones that I've been excited to hear about, as well as once in awhile ones that I've wanted to read but just haven't had the money to buy.  So, give me a real book first, but don't take away my Nook!  

What about you?  Which do you prefer?  And if you don't mind, if you're not already following me, I've listed my preferred methods of being followed below.

  1. I feel the same way! :D I also have a lot more ebooks than physical copies of my books, so it's convenient to carry my ipad with me and have more than one option of books to read.

    1. I only have a couple books that I have both ebook and physical. Most of my ebooks are egalleys. I do like that I can have the apps on my phone to read in case I don't have my Nook with me.

  2. Yes, because the physical books are so beautiful when they're all lined up and grouped together on your bookshelves, whether by color/series/author/genre or all of them together. lol. Now, that would be a feat, a right good challenge for a book lover. Can you organize them all by color/series/author/genre combined and make it work to the rainbow effect?! lol.

    Happy Reading and Hopping Through! :)

    1. Yeah, I would think that would be impossible since a lot of times all three books in a trilogy are a different color. If you do it, share a picture!

  3. I feel exactly the same way! I love having hard copies but Nooks make things so much easier at times!

  4. I definitely love having a physical book to read! They're fun to look at and I love the smell of a new book! The only thing is, if I had a physical copy of every book I've read, I would be swimming in books at home! That's why I prefer my Kindle! (:

  10. Hi Lisa! Following you back on Bloglovin'.
    I like Kindle/Nook because of the easy access to e-galleys, but I'll take an actual copy any day!
