Do you still read hard copy versions of newspapers, magazines and books or do you only read online?
With digital media on the rise it seems that more people are doing their reading online. I read my magazines, newspapers and books on my iPad and E-reader, but I sometimes miss reading my magazines and books in hard copy.
The only thing I electronically read is the news paper online as I can't get the English newspaper I like to read here. Otherwise I like to have a real book in my hands. I can see that an ereader has it's uses, but I hope it will never totally replace books and papers.

Hard copy newspapers, books and magazines are just as popular as ever. The desire to have a real book or paper in your hands will never die. There are still thousands who do not use the internet. It seems at times that they are being left behind.
I agree with you Debbie on this one. I like to have a real book, newspaper, or magazine in my hands. It's just something I don't want to let go of all because the worlds technology is advancing at the speed of light. The ereader I'm sure has it's advantages as well as it's disadvantages. But I hope too that it never fully replaces hard copies of books or magazines.
I read several newspapers online, along with 2 daily hard copy newspapers and hard copy magazines and books. I'm still old school and like the feel and flexibility of holding my material in my hands.
I was a newspaper reporter--so you can probably guess my answer.
I like a newspaper. I like having a page of comics, an editorial page and the news pages. I like the ads at the bottom of the page, with nothing popping up at me.
My eyes get tired, so I do not read a lot of books. My wife always has a book with her. The last gift I would ever by for her would be a Kindle or similar device. There is an old made for TV movie call 84 Charring Cross Road about a female writer who buys rare books from an English book store. She talks about the feel of the paper, how the book is bound, the note a previous owner wrote inside. She gives each book its own personality. I have a collection of books, mostly collections of short stories, that I read from time to time. Computers are great and i get a lot of information from them, but the printed word is hard to beat.
I am becoming terribly frustrated as i want to subscribe to a hard copy of a newspaper here in SA they want me to subscribe to on an on line edition I like to have a newspaper to be by my chair so i can relax with a drink and read what i want when i want I cant be bothered flicking through pages on line

Hard copy or Kindle Books?When compiling your Amazon listing on a new hub, do you typically include Kindle books for their popularity or do you only list hard/soft cover books in hopes of increasing your revenue from Amazon?
