@letranknight2015 There is also the app for amazon you can get on your tablet or smartphone and just go to the Kindle store and get the free app and then look in the Kindle store and there ae some free books or you can pay for the books but new ones are a lot cheaper than buying the new book in paper form!

I love reading books, I now have a small library of books with different genres. As much as possible, after I finish a book, I read another. As of now, due to the hype of my booknerd friends of the movie Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, I started reading the book and it is insightful and imaginative. During my free time, instead of doing nothing and just blankly stare at a computer screen, I read books as it contributes to more knowledge and principles I can apply in real life. I prefer books to e-books because reading from a screen for too long strains the eye. Plus, when there is no electricity or during hiking, books are your best friends.

@iridion9 Well, it has its advantages and disadvantages, but for me, I weighed them and researched about them and found out that paperback books have more advantages than e-books subconsciously and consciously. Regarding the environmental issues, I don't think they just illegally cut off trees to create books 'just like that', as I read that there is a specific reservoir of natural resources that are culminated for books and paper, so it kind of like loops around. Anyway, books are still books and as long as we enjoy them it does not matter if its ebook or paperback books.
I used to read books back when I was in high school then i stopped when I got to college. But a year ago when I had my second child, I realized the only thing I can do is whatever my phone can handle. So I found online where i could get up to date ebooks for cheap and I never stopped reading until now.
