Q:  If you own an eBook, would you also purchase a print copy as well?
A: There was once a time when I wouldn't even read an ebook. Now it's pretty much all I read, and I'm not a fan of clutter, so I'm gonna say no. I once wanted a library and had one in my home. Then we downsized, and I learned what it was like to have to transport all of those books. To this day, most of them are in Rubbermaid bins in my basement. As I finish a bin, albeit slowly since I read more ebooks, I then give away the book to another wonderful reader.

  6. I'm the say way with digital reading. I have hundreds of books and sold them all. I realized that I can always just go to a library and never have to move a box of books again. Thank and living tiny...

    Here's mine for this week.

  15. I'm more of an ebook reader now too, Freda. All my old paperback are up in our loft! Lol! But the short answer to this week's BBH question is generally no. However, if I've read an ebook by a favourite author that I'd like to get signed one day then yes! 💜😊
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your week, stay safe and healthy.
    Here's my BBH Post

  16. I've heard such great things about One of Us Is Lying. I would like to read it someday.

    I still remember the boxes and boxes and boxes and boxes of books we had when we made our move 9 years ago. I donated over 1000 books on top of that. I still have a substantial number of books. I am not a huge fan of clutter, but I do like having full bookshelves and being surrounded by books. I am lucky that I have the space for them, but I do try to give away books I do not plan to re-visit. It's about time I go through my shelves again . . . Especially at times like these with libraries closed and money being tight, I am grateful I do have my books. I love my e-reader too though, and there are so many advantages to reading that way--which I do a lot of.

    Have a great week.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
