eReaders vs Traditional Books - Which Is Better? (List!)

Image
Hello, everyone! I'm back, and I'm here to ask the age-old question: Is an eReader or a "real" book better to read? Well, let's list off the pros and cons of each and see if we can find a answer for this question. My future purchases may depend on the answer. Let's get onto the list, shall we?

eReader/Digital Books: Pros

An entire library in the palm on your hand
Lightweight
Adaptable in light (depending on device)
Options to change font style/sizes
Portable
Same book on multiple devices
Buy and own books instantly
Price for books (sometimes free)

Traditional Books: Pros

Old book smell
Libraries/bookstores (and their awesomeness)
Book covers
Book shelves
Sharable
Class notes/Page numbers
Turning pages (the feeling)
More likely to retain information

Alright, so we've got two substantial lists going on. To me it seems that the eReader is killing it in efficiency while traditional books are more aesthetically pleasing. This makes sense if you think about it. …

Cover Clothes #7: These Broken Stars by alexandramathews featuring clear crystal jewelry



Hello, everyone! I'm back, and I'm here to do a quick cover clothes. This time I'm doing These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. It has to be one of my favorite covers, and I'm really digging the dress that I found to match it. Everything is under $50, but the dress is only $16. It's kind of amazing. Most of the set is self-explanatory, but I had to add the gun charm for our charming Tarver. Ouch. That was really punny, even for me.

Paper Towns - Movie Review!

Image
Hello, everyone! I'm back, and I'm here to review Paper Towns the movie! As you may know, the movie is based on the book with the same title by the ever-so-wonderful John Green. I did a review on the book, which you can find here. However, my quick review is this: it wasn't my favorite. There were characters I didn't like, and overall I thought that it didn't flow the way I wanted it to. But does the movie have the same flaws? Will I ever like Margo? More importantly, did my mother like it? Well, let's get onto the review and find out!
First of all, I will say that I was surprised by the movie. Considering I didn't find the book all that and a bag of chips, I found myself really enjoying the movie. There were parts that had me chuckling to the point were my ribs started to hurt. Even after reading the book and knowing what was going to happen, it still felt like a surprise, and the funny parts were still funny. Then of course, there is mother who hadn'…

Update - Where I Am... And Where I Hope to Be

Image
Hello, everyone! I'm back, and this is going to be a quick update. I know I've done far too many of these lately, but I can't seem to get back into the groove of things. I feel like I'm pulling myself into seventy different directions, and other than being pulled apart, I find myself forgetting where I am and where I want to be. In case you haven't guessed yet, I've also been feeling a little moody. That led me to feeling less than motivated to where the blog was concerned. But I'm back, and I'm ready to get fired up.
I've been trying to update the blog this weekend. You may have noticed that there is now a Currently Reading widget on the right side of the blog under my Google+ About Me page. There you can see what I am currently reading, specially for fun and for any book clubs I happen to be a part of. As you can see, for now it has Off the Page by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer. That's right, I haven't quite finished it, but here'…
