    Do you like to read from a regular hardcopy book or from an eBook like the Kindle?

    I still like hardcopy, especially paperbacks. They've made nthje Kindle, as far as I can see, pretty much like a paperback. you can bookmark them, turn pages, all that. But a Kindle is electronic and just like all electronics, they can break down. Plus, as far as I know, they still don't have the ability of full color pictures. And if you buy one and buy 20 books and one day you missplace it or someone steals it, you not only have lost the Kindle, a hundred dollar item, you've lost 20 books. With a paperback, you've just lost one book.

      What about the cost difference? At first all I did was buy off of my kindle, but lately I have been buying just the hard/paperback books.  I have noticed that the price is relatively cheaper with the kindle versions.

    I love hardcopies more. However, eBooks are normally cheaper so my kindle is well used.

    I like hardcovers even though I have to wait for special events that involve money to buy them. Sometimes reading off kindles, computers, electronic devices hurts my eyes giving me migraines. This is a reason why I cannot write on computers for a long time and have to switch to pen and paper. It's annoying, but it is why I prefer reading over writing.
