Do you prefer now E-books to physical books

I find that I am being more and more drawn to e-books these days. I used to be one of those people who refused to read anything but physical. After all, you couldn't feel the weight of the book in digital form, couldn't experience the smell of the paper or the progression through the pages. Plus for ebooks you had to keep charging the device you were reading on. And there were other concerns about the technology... But then my eyesight started causing me problems and I was struggling to read any of my books. The words just kind of blurred and I had to keep squinting at the pages until I started getting a headache. I downloaded some books for my phone because I wanted to read SOMETHING, and I found that I could resize the text to my liking which made reading so much easier. These days I keep a collection of books on my phone for reading whenever I feel the need or find the time. And it has worked out well for nights when I could not sleep. the phone produces enough light for me to read with and I don't have to bother my husband when he is trying to sleep. So I have to admit despite my love for physical books, ebooks have turned out to be a great deal more convenient for me.
