Q: "Have you switched to reading mostly ebooks or do you still hanker for the feel of a bound book in your hands? How would you prefer to have your books published?"
But when I'm reading, I have a definite preference. I prefer books.
I understand the convenience of reading on a Kindle or Nook. I can only imagine the space it would free up in my suitcase when I travel. And, as I look over a pile of books I brought back from Bouchercon, I'm pretty sure switching to e-books would mean a lot more room in my house too. But I'm pretty stuck on printed books.
I like the soft ivory of the page behind the black ink. I like being able to easily see if I'm half way. I like the weight of a hardcover, and the feel of a paperback. I just like books.
Although if someone wants to perform for me an interpretative dance of Catriona McPherson's latest book, A Deadly Measure of Brimstone that would be fine too. (It's out now, so go and buy it!): http://catrionamcpherson.com/
