I love both formats for different reasons. I travel a lot for work (read that as waiting in airports). The Kindle is great for this. But paper still rules at home. There are a number of books I’ve considered good enough to have in both formats: I’ve read many times “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” and “With the Old Breed” by Eugene Sledge. Two of my favorites. The former is real quick and I’ve read it several times purposefully when having a bad day full of First World Problems, which are then cured.
I was also started early in grade school on the Hardy Boys. Discovered Lord of the Rings in 6th grade and that REALLY made me take off in reading.
Love history; some of the best days in elementary school were when my school had the annual book fair when there was tons of stuff to buy. In terms of when this was, I’m 52 so there wasn’t any electronics at play...I had to work HARD in our little library to find out stuff like how to make a crossbow with a leaf spring...😬😈
