I personally enjoy books. However, I am sick so ebooks are wonderful because I can access them from home and not get anyone else infected. :)

I like both haha, but I often read at late of the night, so for me, it's better an ebook

I’m one of those who love paper books and have a large collection of those and growing. I still browse the store for them, there’s just something about the feel of a paper book in hands and physically turning the pages. I can, however, appreciate an e-reader or program that allows me to read on my desktop and mobile. I can reach texts I otherwise would not have access to.

I confess that I used to read books only if I could smell and feel them. But times change, the rhythm of life, etc. For a while now pdf, ebook, kindle, have been my most loyal friends.

I love paper books, and I do love curling up and reading them and I have more books than bookshelf space, but when I'm on the go or traveling and visiting friends or relatives, its just so convenient to have my nook or iPad with me. Even when Im laying down in bed, its easier to read on my phone sometimes. Its just one of those things, each one has a pro and con.

It took me a while, but now I appreciate ebooks, especially when I’m reading library books. I still have paper books that I like to get for my personal library.

Definitely paper. I love the feel of the pages as I read. It's also easier (For me at least) to find my place in a book.

I used to think that the idea of digital reading was ridiculous. But it has become so much more convenient. So..ebook!

From my point of view Ebooks will be more preferable because it's saves our lot of money and we can read any types books according to our choices...Google is also having so many different apps where we can get number of books .Now comes the main part here now the user interface of the apps is so much
friendly we can handle the brightness of the book and it will not affect our eyes also...can give the example of kindle.

Ebook or Paper book

I used to prefer paper book because I can feel and touch them and I don't have to stare so long at a screen. But when I think of the burden in moving books around when relocating or traveling or if ones books get stolen or lost, what then happens?
So presently, I prefer E-books.

I definitely love real paper books. Ebooks are just not comparable. It’s the feel, the smell, and being able to physically touch them. That being said I love the convenience of ebooks as in if I find a book I want to read I can read it right away no waiting for shipping or driving to the bookstore. That has its advantages in certain situations. I love to go into physical book stores and shop and look at all of the beautiful covers. As a book lover on a budget though ebooks also are nice because the price is usually low. I’m still Team Books though!

I love paper books, it's easier to read than ebooks and I don't have to worry about my battery
