    I guess I am old-fashioned.  I like holding a book and flipping the "real" pages.  smile

    Honestly, I prefer whichever one is cheaper. There is absolutely no reason a digital copy of a book should be the same price or more expensive than a physical book!

    I prefer a real book that i can put on a shelf, the worry of me damaging it is at a minimum. I am horrible when it comes to keeping electronics safe and scratch/damage free.

    Oh I prefer real books. My eyes get tired easily on electronic devices. I love the old books. I love the smell of them. I love to run my fingers on its pages. I can underline my favorite lines and put color on them. I just love the presence of books. smile

    I'm fashioned too. I enjoy reading online regularly but I'll have a collection of physical books. There's just something appealing about packing an old paperback with you while going camping or hanging out at the beach. It's so relaxing to just take a moment, enjoy the sunshine, and get lost in the book's world as you flip the pages... I seem to read more mentally active material online, like "How To Do" articles.
