Do you prefer ebooks or old-fashioned books?

How do you like to read?

I prefer to read books the old-fashioned way personally! I just love holding a book, being able to see how long it is, the smell, and the look of having a full bookshelf. Nerd

I know many other prefer to read books as ebooks, either for environmentalism, to save money, or for its practicality. 

What about you?

I definitely prefer any kind of ebook over paper ones. I read on iPad. There are several things I don’t like about paper book. It consumes paper (trees), it consumes physical space, it’s difficult to hold comfortably and delivery times are longer than with ebooks.

The paper book as an invention is fantastic though.

When it comes to reading text books I agree with Niklas, e-books are the way forward, it not only helps the environment but I find they are often cheaper to buy. However when it comes to reading for pleasure I agree with Tammy and Emo, nothing beats the feel and smell of real book. 

All the best, Leia

I agree Tammie and Emo. I don't have the best eyes and that combined with migraines do not mix well with screens. Scared But the environment is very important!

Paperbooks look, feel and smell wonderful but I prefer to read ebooks on my kindle.
