Kindle or Physical Books

Kindle or Physical Book? Ah, that question that always crosses the mind of book lovers, who are left wondering whether it is time to accept change or keep smelling books. Digital books and physical books have their own benefits and their own merits. If you use both formats, you will have a satisfactory reading experience for most situations.

But when should you pick up a digital book and when is the right time for you to read a physical book? Let’s find out.

When to Buy a Kindle Book?

Kindle, among other digital reading platforms, offers a unique experience with some great benefits. Every day, Amazon’s Kindle Store is filled with different deals and sales, offering great discounts on various genres of books. On the left side, under Popular on Kindle, you should see a section called Kindle Book Deals.

Here, you can scroll through the hundreds of deals available, with limited daily deals, $0.99 deals, special offers, and more. What’s great is that you can also subscribe to these deals, with new daily offers being sent to your inbox. Oh, and it’s full of free digital books too, on Amazon.

What is Kindle Unlimited?

Kindle Unlimited is a subscription book service that gives you access to over 2 million titles and thousands of audiobooks for one monthly price. And the cool thing. You can try this feature for free, for 30 days.

While the quality of the books on Kindle Unlimited may vary, the sheer quantity of books means that you will always find something that catches your attention. And with millions of books available, it doesn’t seem like you can run out of things to read.

Kindle books are a great way to save space and allow you to have access to all your books no matter where you are.

This is perfect if you are traveling, as you can free up luggage space without leaving any books behind. You can even put your Kindle in your jacket pocket to access it. A Kindle is a great device to take with you on your travels – you don’t have to leave any books at home.

Editor’s note: My favorite thing about the Kindle is that I can have several books when I travel, without weighing down my suitcase. Also, when I’m on the bus or about to board the plane, I can buy new books in a matter of seconds without leaving my seat.

When to Buy a Physical Book?

While Kindle books are great, physical books should also have their place in your reading library.

Physical books come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and materials. This variety can lead to some unique and beautiful books that make a wonderful collector’s edition.

Kindle books are not so special in that regard because they are essentially all the same, in terms of format and presentation. With Kindle books, you’ll miss vibrant illustrations, beautiful covers, and other details that an e-book simply can’t replicate.

Beautifully bound and crafted versions of your favorite books can make reading much more engaging and special, and it’s an attribute that physical books will never lose. There is something special and unique about reading a physical book, and reading one often involves multiple senses.

Unlike reading an e-book, you are feeling the material of the covers and pages, hearing each satisfying page turn, taking in the words visually, but also the materials, illustrations, progress, colors, and craftsmanship of a physical book.

You are also completely interested in the reading and not looking at another screen. Despite its cool features and stats, you may still be constantly checking things while reading your Kindle, even if they’re not exactly your emails or WhatsApp messages. With a physical book, however, it’s all about the book-in every respect.

Every physical book you read will leave some kind of lasting impression in a way that an e-book may not achieve.

Kindle Books and Physical Books: Which to Choose?

While there are times when one may seem better than the other, both Kindle and physical books should have a place in your reading library. Each offers unique plus points, and if you use both formats, you’ll find that they complement each other wonderfully.

So whether you decide to download a Kindle daily deal or lay your eyes on a beautiful hardcover, make sure you use both Kindle and physical books.

While not available in every book, the Kindle’s X-Ray feature is a free addition that gives you more information about the characters, places, and events in that book, which is perfect if you want to make the most of your reading experience.

Kindle’s extra features are unobtrusive and intuitive; you can ignore them if you want, but they’re just a tap away whenever you want to get a deeper insight into your book.

Loaning a physical book is much less difficult. You simply give your book to the other person. There is no one-time license when you buy a book, which means that what you buy is yours to do with as you wish, and you can sell your book, something you can’t do with e-books.
