Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: If you own an ebook, would you also purchase a print copy as well?
So I guess the answer to this is…not applicable? The thing of it is, I never buy an ebook first, because I still have pretty thoroughly resisted reading ebooks. The very rare times have been when a paper version just doesn’t exist – that’s come up a few times with self-published books I wanted to read.
To look at this in a larger sense, I do occasionally buy more than one form of a book – though mostly print and audiobook. I have bought audio editions of some books I already owned in paper because…I wanted to listen to the audio. I have a few audiobooks I may eventually buy in paper. I have to really like a book though – I’ve done a number of audiobooks from the library where I owned a paper copy, but I think I’ve really only purchased L. M. Montgomery books, a complete Sherlock Holmes, and a couple Jane Austen books for a book club I’m in.
I’ve bought one or two ebooks that I already had in print to make them more portable, on the theory that it would be nice to have some particularly beloved books on my phone that I could just dip into. I don’t actually do that though, so that was more theory…
How about you? Do you buy books in multiple formats? Digital then paper, or the other way around?
