That’s the topic tackled in this post from Time. I’m an eReader person for much of my reading, but I use a physical notebook to take notes…so I’m sort of bridging the gap, at least that’s what I tell myself.

I certainly feel that I can’t physically orient myself in the content on an eReader like I can in a book. That was one of the notes in the article.

In general, I listen to audiobooks when I’m running (or podcasts) and I stick to fiction there. I rarely consume non-fiction in audio format.

I read on my Kindle most of the non-fiction I have. If it’s a stand out stellar book I get it in paper and put it on the list to read again.

Thanks to Lisa for pointing me to this article

    I’m discovering I love access to the same book in both paper and ereader. During the day I prefer the paper copy, but at night in bed or on travel, I prefer to read it on my Kindle. But only if I can do this with library books; I wouldn’t pay twice for the same book. Thankfully my public library offers many books in both versions.

      Unfortunately my public library doesn’t have most of the books I really want to read, in the non-fiction realm. I don’t purchase every book in paper, just the key ones that I keep coming back to.

      I’m also the opposite, eReader in the day and after dinner I am for paper and no devices.
