Which do you like better, reading the old fashioned way from a book or on an e-reader?
I prefer to read the old fashioned way. I think it's the smell. I love the smell of a book!
I don't have an e-reader so I can't say for certain, but I'd think still an old-fashioned book. I'll read books on my computer sometimes just because that's the easiest available format for me, but given my choice I'll take an honest-to-goodness paper book. I'm already staring at a screen way too long every day, and I would be very nervous taking an e-reader with me into a bubble bath.
Book, despite the convenience of e-readers, you cannot beat the the sensory delights of holding a book and turning the page, and you never have a battery die in the middle of a sentence.
I love reading the old fashioned way. I adore books, I love holding them in my hands and turning the pages, it feels more real
Books are great & I think the e-reader is handy for travel. Being able to store many books on it, that's useful.
I like the convenience of the e-reader, but I think I will always love the book.
I am all for old-fashion! I love the feel and the smell of the book.
wow!! i see i am outnumbered!! i love reading on my e-reader!! and the nook colour is awesome!! especially the colour childrens books for my daughter...she loves it!! thanks for sharing your thoughts...awesome!!
I love to hold a good hard back book, however, my Kindle is the greatest thing since sliced bread to me. I love how light weight it is, especially since it spends a lot of time in my purse. I have floor to ceiling book shelves on 2 different walls in my house & they are filled to capacity. The Kindle is a much better alternative.
I love the smell of books, but my Kindle is so easy to read. I don't have to worry about holding a sturdy spine open with both hands. I can conveniently lay in my bed and read a book with one hand...also, i never psych myself out by examining how many remaining pages i have to read to finish the book, or even the chapter for that matter. But alas, there is something enchanting about old-fashioned books. I still buy them, even though i could get them on my Kindle for cheaper or free.
I'm an old-fashioned one who enjoys the smell and feel of bound paper. The convenience of an e-reader is undeniable:.I could be persuaded to get one for travel, but would still want my bookcases full of my fave reads and reference material. Anyway you look at it, the most important thing is the reading! .
Old fashioned way. I can't stand scrolling down or pretending to flip the page on an electronic device because pretty soon the words become a blur to me. And I already use the computer and electronics enough so it hurts my eyes to read books on electronics.
Carrying books is difficult,but reading ebooks on ebook reader don't suits me.I feel pain in my eyes whenever i read ebooks.So i prefer books over ebooks.
Old fashioned BOOKS.
But these kindle and e-reading things are superb as they are portable. But .... BOOKS rox.
Call me old fahsioned, but I would love to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea anytime.
And I cannot imagine reading to my kids from a machine!
I am not sure as i don't own a e-reader, but i do love curling up with a good book
I prefer the real thing! The e-reader just doesn't have that nice homey feeling of paper that I love so much.
I agree with Rusty C. Adore. I love the smell of a good book. Sounds weird, doesn't it?
I am a book lover and was very reluctant to buy an e-reader. But I did. I bought a kindle and I absolutely love it. It's easy to set up and operate, and it's made so that the screen looks like paper, there is absolutely no glare so you can read anywhere. Also, it's not backlit, so you need a lamp, just like with a book. It also holds 3000 books, so I can change my mind when I get to the doctor's office, airport, etc. and read what I feel like reading.
The old-fashioned way. An e-book is convenient for travel, but I always love the experience of reading a hardcover book the best.
I am a paperback fan. I love to read in the bathtub (the only quiet, peaceful place in my house is often the bathroom) and I just know that I would destroy an e-reader with the humidity and the water.
I love reading, and will always love the old way, but my ereader is wonderful. It is more convenient not having to carry multiple books around. Plus, there are many other extras on an ereader.

For those with ebook readers: Did it replace physical books or just increase how much you read?There's all this talk about how there won't be physical books anymore and that everything is going digital. As a writer, I hope that's not true. I have an ebook reader and I found I just read more because...
