I agree it doesn't have to be an either/or situation. I have both and they both serve a purpose. Right now I live in a small house and the kindle saves space. I love a good book sale and will buy paperback and hard cover too. I like the portability of a kindle and that I can switch what I am reading as I am usually in the middle of a few books and will read based on my mood.

Exactly! And I've found myself reading so much more because an e-reader is so convenient! And there are so many books to choose from. I've started reading new books on Kindle and then buying a paperback of the ones I love! Works for me..

I agree! I love the convenience of e-readers, but I just love the feeling of a paperback book in my hand. They're both good, and I use both. I have an e-reader and multiple physical books. The method doesn't matter to me so long as I can read a story I like!

For me, if a book is longer or is fantasy where I may want to reference a map/family tree/glossary, I will always prefer the paper version. Nonfiction as well. I tend to use ebooks only for contemporary books that I would want to read "on the go" like between classes at school or when waiting for someone.

Ebooks are generally cheaper but I can find second-hand paper books that sometimes are very cheap so for me it depends a lot on price.
