The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
If I buy both, it is usually the other way around – I have a physical book and then buy the eBook. It’s not unusual for me to get frustrated with having to have light with a physical book – something that is not needed with my iPad – and not to be able to highlight passages and include notes. I mean, I could highlight and take notes in a physical book but I never would and having a notebook nearby for notes is not always convenient.
So, no, I probably wouldn’t buy a print copy of a book if I already own an eBook edition (the only exception would be if I had an opportunity to get it signed by the author) but, yes, I would buy an eBook edition after purchasing a physical copy.
How about you? Would you buy both formats of books?
