So how do you like to read?
Would you rather read digitally or by holding the paper of a book/magazine?
I have come to the decision for me it depends on if I buy it or borrow it from the library (or if it is free!).
Back in 2012, we went to San Diego and I bought a digital version of the Frommer's San Diego. I thought we would have the guide at our finger tips on our phones and the iPad without the bulkiness of carrying it around. I hated it! There was no way to just flip around the guide. I like to flip :) And as a keepsake keeper, I like to see the used travel guides on the shelf to remind me of our trips.
Then, last year, PaperCrafts announced they were going digitally and had an amazing deal of $10 for the year. I fell for it and got the subscription, even though I had seized all my subscriptions a couple of years before. Again, I wasn't enthused about reading it digitally each month. I would "flip" through it once and forget about it.
BUT...and there is a big but...if I am reading library books, I would rather read them on my iPad. Once, I happily read during a whole baseball game (the high school coach was a jerk...but that is a different subject) on my smartphone--it was awesome.
Another BUT, if I am buying a book, I want to physically see it on my shelf...I paid for it, so I want to touch it.
So for me, I like reading both ways...depending on what it costs me :)
I am hoping to have reviews of the Mollie Makes magazines soon!
