Many of you probably know by now that I don’t read ebooks. It’s not that I don’t want to read ebooks, it’s more like it’s really complicated for me to. I don’t have an eReader and I know that you can read ebooks on the computer, but reading on the computer for a long time just hurts my eyes. The only way I can read ebooks is on my iTouch app, which makes reading ebooks uncomfortable since my iTouch screen is just so small. If I read ebooks on my iTouch, the only ebooks I read are adult romance books since they are usually shorter than a full length novel and a few new adult books that I borrowed from the library.
I’ve been reading ebooks on my iTouch for about four months and noticed this particular trend: I don’t read ebooks as carefully as I do when I read physical books. While reading ebooks, I don’t read things carefully, I don’t take any notes, and I just continue reading the book without really registering what’s going on in my brain and then analyzing it. When I read ebooks, I just read them to enjoy them and am very lenient when I read and review them.
However, when I read physical books, I pay attention to what I read and analyze every little thing as I read. I think about all the possibilities (how else can I predict all the plot twists way before they were revealed?) and read things a lot more carefully. I also take notes when I read physical books, something I can’t bring myself to do while I read ebooks. I tend to write longer and more detailed reviews when I read a physical book instead of reading an ebook.
Do you guys have this same issue when you read physical books and ebooks or is it only just me? Does reading an ebook or a physical boos make any difference to you when you write your reviews? I want to know!
