Paperbacks or eBooks?

Is it just me or am I a creature of habit to prefer reading paperback books? Like many readers, I upload eBooks on my Kindle app to my phone but I also order paperbacks. Boy, do I order paperbacks!

To me, they are treasures to enjoy again and again. Books on a device are out of sight and most of the time out of mind. And what do you think the future of books will be?

Do you have favorites? What about hardback verses paperback? My favorite collections are Agatha Christie mysteries and short stories, Dorothy Sayers mysteries and short stories, Murder She Wrote books by Donald Bain, The Hobbit and Trilogy of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien, and Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. For my birthday, my husband is giving me The Red Wall Series by Brian Jacques. It will coincide with my latest acquisition of The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter by Susan Whitig Albert. I adore Beatrix Potter and have all of her books, too.

Most of my books are paperback but the hardbacks, like Harry Potter and some classics, give my library a classy look. One thing's for sure, I'll never NOT have anything to do! I hope you'll try The Jillian Bradley Mystery Series. In them you'll find interesting settings, unusual plots, and an amateur sleuth who loves afternoon tea and her little Yorkie companion, Teddy, a sleuth in his own right. For the synopsis of each, you may check the book page: Books

By the way, the books come in paperback and eBook formats so the choice is up to you!

See you in my books!
