    I am old-school all the way, I love the feeling of a book in my hand and turning the pages...nothing beats it!  I always have a book in my bag to read when eating alone or sitting in a waiting room, but I notice that I am usually the only person reading from a book and not  a digital device.

      Book worm? That's great to keep up with or beat the reading culture that is fading. I read books likewise and digital. Thanks.

    Always physical books for me. I just can't get into digital e-books. The best part is you can now pick up bargains form second- hand shops. I always have a book on me whenever I go somewhere too. I like the smell of a real book too.

      Aah yes, the smell of a book! And yes, second-hand shops are great for bargains, thanks for your feedback Jodah.

    Physical books all the way. Not only is it good for your eyes but its gives out great aesthetic vibe. The smell of books are enough to send nostalgia down your nostrils. The pleasure of reading a physical book is far more than that of a mere gadget.

    I only read physical books. I think part of the reason is because I'm an old - fashioned type of person and I'm not a big fan of technological devices. It's nice to get away from technology for a while while reading a good book.
