I prefer paper book than E-book.
First, reading a book does not hurt my eyes because of the light and radiation from gadgets. Also, it is much easier to find the parts you wanted to look back on. Readine books is way too different from reading on E-books.

I would prefer paper books. turning the pages, writing down my favorite quotes - I love doing these by looking into the paper books, not a screen. It hurts my eye when I look at it too long.
Well for people who do not have this problem, anything will be fine I say, On the screen or on paper, the story is the same......... :P

Paper book because my eyes get tired faster when reading from an Ebook.

I agree! I find that reading an ebook on the computer, tablet or Kindle tires out my eyes a lot faster than a regular book. It may be more convenient to read and carry with me, but a real book I can read a lot longer.

E-book for most of my reading, but If I happen to find a favorite piece of literature and even beautiful cover work then paperback.

I love my kindle. It's great for me when I'm on the go and it's light and convenient to have so many books with me. But I love the feel of the paper and getting to turn the pages of a book while reading even more. When I'm out I usually just use my kindle but other than that I'm usually with an actual book.

E-books have definitely become popular at this day in age, they are more convenient in terms of space, and can allow you to have thousands of books with you at all times. Although E-books and readers are great, nothing beats a hard copy book. It’s been proven that people tend to retain more information when reading something in print, than online. I’m sure we read books to remember the stories, not for them to get lost in our heads. Also have an actual book in your hand just has a certain appeal to. Hard copy books are definitely the way to go!
