ok so the title says it all, which one do you think is better? eBooks or hard copy books? (and reffering to eBooks as reading a book on your computer, an eBook reader, or your phone)

be creative into backing up which one is better.

have fun!!

I like hard copy books because if your computer gets hacked, they won't be deleted.

I prefer Hardcovers because they are of more value and you're actuattly getting the print rather than some 10110110 code.

I definately like hardcovers for all the reasons that have been said, and if you stare at a screen for hours on end, it really hurts your eyes.

Although, my friend has a kindle, and it's actually quite nice. It has a protective screen so it's like reading a book, not reading off a screen. It runs on batteries, so it'll still be there when the electricity goes out, books are only up to $3, you don't have to take up a bunch of room when going on trips, and you can put notes in the text to remind you of something later, and then erase them if you don't need/want it anymore. You can take you're whole library with you; it stores up to about 1,500 books, I think.

Plus we're going to Colorado next month, so we've been saving up for that. Oh, well. I still love my books!! eBooks vs. hard copy books Icon_biggrin
