Even though I do a lot of reading on my kindle or audible app, I still collect print books. For books I love I prefer to have them in every format! How do you choose what format to buy your books in?
One of my favorite New Adult authors is Colleen Hoover. I do own several of her books in paperback that I had signed by her at a New Adult book event earlier this year. Colleen’s latest book Losing Hope just hit shelves in paperback.
Here’s five reasons why Colleen Hoover loves printed books:
- I love having them on display because they’re pretty.
- I love being able to have them signed by my favorite authors.
- I like to be able to let people borrow them.
- I love the smell of real paper.
- The ones that suck make good coasters (:))
All good reasons! I think print books come in handy for plane travel when you have to turn off your digital devices for ascent and descent, they are easier to flip through for reference, they hold your favorite bookmarks, you can appreciate the typography and inside cover, and of course no batteries required.
Colleen Hoover is the New York Times bestselling author of Slammed, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, This Girl, and Losing Hope. Colleen lives in Texas with her husband and their three boys. Colleen is out on the Atria Indie Author tour right now – catch her, Jamie McGuire, and Abbi Glines at one of the tour stops if you can:
