  • I prefer a paperback 9 times out of 10, but I'm considering getting a kindle for traveling and stuff.

  • Paper books!

    Electronic books can be great for textbooks that you only need to reference for a few pages here and there, but for more dedicated page-by-page reading, there's no comparison to a physical book.

    And when we're talking about reading novels, then physical books just blow away electronic ones, lol. The feel of it in your hands, the smell of the pages, the flipping of the pages, etc. PLUS, if you don't abuse your physical books, a beloved copy of a book can last a lifetime with you. Can't say the same about electronic, especially considering that file technology, hardware, and platforms change all the time.

  • I prefer paper books. I love the smell and the physical turning of pages. Also, I've noticed that my eyes sometimes hurt when I read off of kindles/computers. E-books are way more convenient though!

  • I have plenty of e books of 10 I have read 6 but I get distracted a lot. I often miss the feel of turning the paper and the smell of a new book. I'm a weirdo

  • I don't mind either... I got used to using my tablet to read but a real book just feels better.

  • I love ebooks. Soon as i done with one book i can instantly buy the next one... But there is just something about flipping each page by hand that makes it more meaningful. I like regular books more, i just don't have time for them :(

  • Ebooks because they're free.
    There's no feeling in the world like holding a book in your hands but when the budget is tight especially for school and most of the assigned books are pure bs, ebooks are the way to go.

  • I prefer to read paper books because my eyes hurt if I read on my PC too long. I also want a physical copy that way I know I actually own it forever.

  • I prefer paper books. You can even put them under your pillow. Or you can keep it on your eyes when you sleep.
