What medium do you prefer? Blogs have the obvious advantage of being accessible anywhere, spread to anyone in an instant, the ability to edit, add media and encourage user comments, but if you're like me, you still enjoy the feeling of opening a brand new book. Much like the dying art of buying physical music products, reading a "real" book is something to keep alive!
I agree! I love books, the feel, the look, even the smell.
I so agree. just posted a forum question about something similar. I love the smell of books; they are my friends" that I can carry in my hand. The soft turn of the pages. You cannot get this type of personalization from a computer.
Books, partly b/c of the feel, and partly b/c books, for all of the garbage that gets printed, nonetheless have a slightly higher range of quality than every little fart somebody wants to broadcast over the 'Net.
For easy readings I would prefer blogs, for other I would prefer printed materials (books).
i love books but admit that they ease of reading online makes it
Books and blogs fulfill different functions. Personally, I read both.
I love my books and collect my favorites A blog can be transformed into a ebook too and downloaded. I'm still not sure if I want a huge collection of ebooks (as I do now, lol) because of the space required even if using a external HD. maybe I'm just being fussy, lol.
I appreciate both but I am still in love with the sense of paper turning and a sloppy day with just coffee and a good book.

Paper books or kindle? Which do you prefer and why?I personally prefer kindle as it is more convenient and 1 kindle(or any other e-book reader) = several books. Besides, it saves trees.

Do people still buy books any more?With many bookstores going out of business, do you still buy books anymore? If so, do you buy the traditional books, audio-books, or eBooks?
