#BookBloggerHop | Tapping Book Pages

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 you read a print book after reading a few e-books, do you find yourself tapping the bottom of the page so it will turn?

The short answer is no.

I do however find myself frustrated for not being able to highlight names and pertinent sections that I might want to go back to before writing my review. And wishing it was lighted at night 🙂

Do you have any attributes from an e-book that you wish print books had or do you finding yourself tapping pages of print books like you do e-books?

  1. That’s such a fascinating question! I never find myself doing that, mostly because I don’t get to read print books often. When I do, though, I relish turning those pages because it beats furiously and angrily tapping my Kindle to try to turn the page.

  2. I have been known to tap the page of a paperback, wondering why it wouldn’t turn, then realising and laughing at myself 🙈😂 When I’m reading on paper, I usually also have an ebook on the go for all those instances where reading digitally is just so much easier, like in bed.

    1. I used to be that way too. I finally embraced an ebook when I realized I could take a whole series of books with me on vacation in just one little device. That was a game changer for me. ❤️

    1. I used to be solely a print book person and even had one of those little lights you can hang on books 😊. My husband finally sold me on ebooks when I realized how many books I could take on vacation with me in such a little package.

  3. I’ve borrowed a few ebooks from the library and it drove me mad that I couldn’t highlight passages or look up words. I think physical books just feel too different for me to confuse them.

  4. I can honestly say that I have never done this haha! I read more print books than ebooks typically but even when I have gone through a period of reading a lot on the kindle and then going back to a paper book it has never happened… yet anyway!

    1. Me either. I think it’s because I hold them differently. The ebook I hold with one hand and my thumb at the ready whereas print books, I hold with both hands with my index finger near the top corner ready to flip the page.

  5. I finally read a print book after reading over 100 ebooks, and while I didn’t tap the bottom of the book like a kindle, I did have trouble with the print. I’m so used to being able to enlarge the print on the Kindle, that I kept trying to enlarge the print in the physical book! But, I dug out my old book light, and that helped a lot and I really enjoyed reading the print book.

    1. Oh, I agree about not being able to adjust the size. But there is something magical about print books. I’ve had the opportunity to read and review two lately and I loved it. Though the note taking was a bit problematic.

  6. I don’t read a lot of print books anymore and the main reason is print size. I love that I can make the print bigger on my tablet. When I get a print book from the library, I really try to get large print if possible. I do not tap the corner to flip the page in actual books though.
