Paperback please. But since we're dealing with ebooks here, do I really have a choice?

While I prefer being able to read a physical copy of a book, I think I like the fact that i can read ebooks in the dark/at any possible moment. (I use my phone so as long as it's not dead, I'm good!

I know there is this hype around ebooks and readers, but honestly speaking I just don't get it! curling up with a good book, especially after a long day is my favourite thing and you just don't get the same feel with the readers. And who doesn't love a full book shlef anyway? What are your thoughts ebook or the real thing?
If you have a smartphone, download free ereader Prestigio app on Google Play Store and tell me your experience. It works great on smartphone. It's what I'm using because it's free. 😄

I love, love, love, paper books. That being said I mainly get ebooks because I've lost my paper books to many times due to unforseen circumstances and so I'm scared of losing them again.

I like both paper and e-books. E-books are great for reading in the dark and on the go. Paper books are good for when you want to sit and relax.

I understand the appeal of ereaders or kobos, especially if you’re travelling and you don’t want to carry multiple books with you. But there’s nothing like the feeling of picking up a real book and feeling the pages beneath your fingers; constantly turning pages in anticipation and dreading when you turn the inevitable last page, but then feeling instant joy knowing you can pick up another real book.
