Top 5 Reasons Why I Love Ebooks

Sooo I’ve had my Kindle for 8 years…and I absolutely LOVE it!ย ๐Ÿ˜ย If you know me, you’d know that I prefer ebooks over physical books.ย 

Here are my top 5 reasons why I love ebooks:

1. It’s efficient.giphy (1).gif

It’s not realistic for me to bring all my favorite books to college. ๐Ÿ“šย My suitcase and dorm simply don’t have enough space. With ebooks, I can carry multiple books at once!ย My entire digital library sits in the palm of my hand versus my actual physical library sits on my bookshelf 2,000 miles away.

2. Multiple Reading Positionsย gif (1)

I love laying in bed while I’m reading, but reading on your side with a physical book is so uncomfortable! You can’t flip pages easily, and it feels so restraining. Ebooks solve that problem 100%ย ๐Ÿ‘Œ

3. Access books instantly.ย giphy (2).gif

One of the worst feelings is finishing a great book and having to wait to get the sequel. ๐Ÿ˜ฑย With physical books, you have to go to the store or library or wait for it to be shipped to your home. Meanwhile, ebooks are instant access.ย ๐ŸŒŸ

4. There’s a built-in dictionary.ย giphy (1).gif

Let’s be real: there are a lot of words I don’t know. ๐Ÿ˜‚ย Sometimes I can get away with guessing its definition through context clues, but other times, it really breaks the flow in my reading. Ebooks let me know look up the definition in a quick, smooth manner.

5. I can annotate.ย giphy.gif

As a book blogger, it’s very important for me to keep track of my thoughts. โœ๏ธย Being able to highlight and annotate next to my favorite quotes has been so useful. When I write a review, I can reference my notes to speed the process along for a better review!

Do you prefer ebooks or physical books? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!ย ๐Ÿ’•

  1. I actually love both !!

    Though I prefer ebooks for night reading, I’ll agree it’s so much easier !! I love to plop on my side and casually read on my phone (kobo is kiinda too big) snuggled on my sleeping puppy. Also no need to get up and get to shut the darn light !!

  2. I love them both! As long as I’m reading, I honestly don’t care!

    For non-fiction, textbooks, or readings for class though, I prefer e-books. You’re right about it being easier to annotate! And of course I won’t develop bad posture from lugging around all those textbooks ๐Ÿ˜…

    1. so true! as long as i have a book, i shouldn’t be complaining haha

      and totally agree for school books! i keep all my college textbooks as PDFs on my laptop which is so much more convenient than breaking my back (and spending $$$)

  5. I used to always say that I prefer physical books… but I’ve slowly converted to loving ereaders! I also find it so simple and easy to access all of the books, including the eARCs I receive through Netgalley and Edelweiss!
    I haven’t tried the annotation function as of yet; for now, I just write notes in a little notebook, but it would definitely be advantageous to be able to use my ereader to make notes about a book!
    Great post!

  8. I’m a huge hoarder of physical books, but ebooks are my true loves. โ™ฅ I always get back pains, so it’s important that I can easily switch sitting positions, and ereaders help with that. ๐Ÿ˜‰ AND THEY’RE PORTABLE WOOT! No need to carry ginormous books to the mall all the time. xD

  9. I think I prefer physical books, always – that smell haha, the beautiful bookshelves, I am so superficial about these kind of things, but I love the feel of a book, too, haha. BUT YES your arguments are ON POINT here. I love how practical they are, I take my books everyday with me to work, to read on the commute etc, so ebooks are way more practical and less heavy than real, physical copies and YES for instant access to books, I love NOT having to wait, a couple clicks and the book is right here, it is THE VERY BEST FEELING EVER. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Lovely post! ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. I especially love ebooks for reviewing books. I love that you can just type down all your thoughts and flick to them when you’re writing your review, it’s honestly so helpful!
    I completely agree that having all your books in one place is really helpful, especially when I’m going on a holiday and don’t have the space (or the muscles) for a whole pile of books.

  11. Yessss, I’m exactly the same – I LOVE my kindle so much! I know a lot of people prefer real books and I guess they do look pretty on a bookshelf, but they take up so much space!!! Also, I love being able to make notes super easily while I’m reading. I just found your blog, and I love it – your design is so lovely! โค

  12. I definitely prefer ebooks because I can read it on the go, annotate as I wish and don’t have to worry about space or damaging it. Especially annotating, though. I never used to annotate and make notes but I started a few months back and I CANNOT GET ENOUGH. It also really helps when writing reviews. If I’m using a paperback, I’ve taking to using sticky notes and writing my thoughts on them. It worked out really well with Wonder Woman: Warbringer but ebooks are just so much easier.

  13. I prefer readings physical books but that may just be because I don’t have an actual ereader, just my phone. I love the feeling and smell of a physical book, but keeping track of notes is something that sadly doesn’t go that well._.

  14. I prefer ebooks as well especially with a battery that last months and charges in an hour. I don’t have much money so just bought an old Kobo with built light from ebay.
