To me, nothing beats an actual book. I love the smell, the feel of the pages, the perusing through bookstores looking for the perfect book. Nothing makes me happier than looking at my bookshelves and seeing them all lined up, my own personal library.
However, I also use an e-reader. While it doesn’t have the same feel, it makes it much easier to share and borrow books with friends who are far away and I also have better access to self-published titles. The only time I prefer my e-reader to a physical copy of a book is when I am traveling. I can have all of my books right in the same place and not take up half of my duffel bag or suitcase with books.
I have heard plenty of people (not book bloggers or booktubers) say that someday books and bookstores will become obsolete because of e-readers and sites like Amazon. I don’t think that will ever happen. Each platform (physical copy or digital copy) has it’s own appeal and while some prefer one over the other, most people I know use both.
I feel (and hope) that as long as people are reading, that both will thrive.
