    I love reading in all forms, but regular paper books are still my favourite.

    I have tried the digital formats, but for some reason I still just love what they now call the "old-fashioned" paper books too! :-)

    I really love audio books.  I like to listen at work and when I go to sleep at night.

    I prefer digital books but my mother reads paperbacks and then gives them to me so I read mostly paperbacks.  It seems foolish to pay for digital books when I have them given to me for free.  Of course, you can now get digital books from the library at no charge.  I am not a big fan of audiobooks as I find it hard to stay zoned in on them but I really have not tried too many of them so I would say I have not given them a fair chance.

    I enjoy all three in different circumstances, audio books are great for a long drive or commute to work but for me it needs to be 'easy reading' so I can follow it while somewhat concentrating on the road. I was giving a Nook for christmas two years ago and I enjoy the turn around time, downloading it and reading it within minutes but I ultimately prefer a physical copy. I hope digital doesn't completely wipe out actual books it would be a shame.

    Paperbacks, they don't hurt your face when you fall asleep reading in bed. A real book invites you into its pages a screen keeps you distant. I believe reading on screens is a fad.

    Vinyl records are making a comeback with music enthusiasts.

    I've never tried using an audio book so I don't know yet if I would prefer it or not. I love regular old books because I enjoy the feel of them and seeing them on display on my bookshelf. I like digital books just because I've almost run out of storage space for my real books but if I could choose only one I would say paper books.
