Books vs. Blogs

    What medium do you prefer?  Blogs have the obvious advantage of being accessible anywhere, spread to anyone in an instant, the ability to edit, add media and encourage user comments, but if you're like me, you still enjoy the feeling of opening a brand new book.  Much like the dying art of buying physical music products, reading a "real" book is something to keep alive!

      I agree!  I love books, the feel, the look, even the smell.

        I so agree.  just posted a forum question about something similar.  I love the smell of books; they are my friends" that I can carry in my hand.  The soft turn of the pages.  You cannot get this type of personalization from a computer.

      Books, partly b/c of the feel, and partly b/c books, for all of the garbage that gets printed, nonetheless have a slightly higher range of quality than every little fart somebody wants to broadcast over the 'Net. smile

      For easy readings I would prefer blogs, for other I would prefer printed materials (books).

      There are some blogs I'd buy if they were repackaged in book form.

    Books and blogs fulfill different functions.  Personally, I read both.

    I love my books and collect my favorites smile A blog can be transformed into a ebook too and downloaded. I'm still not sure if I want a huge collection of ebooks (as I do now, lol) because of the space required even if using a external HD. tongue maybe I'm just being fussy, lol.

    I appreciate both but I am still in love with the sense of paper turning and a sloppy day with just coffee and a good book.
