Traditional books. I really love having a physical book. I think that e-books are unfortunately the direction things are going, but I hope real books never go away. E-books hurt my eyes and give me headaches after a while.

I love my books! Much cheaper to replace than a nook, and more user friendly.

Once I started reading e-books I was hooked! You can fit so many in such a small device

Right now, traditional, because that is all that I have! I might like eBooks, but I would definitely be afraid to have them in the bath tub.

Gosh, I haven't read a traditional book since last May... !

I am an e-book convert. So happy that my library has gotten on board, and is bringing in more and more material in "e" format.

I read both. There is nothing like holding a book in your hands, manually turning the pages.

ebooks!! I share with my friends, so they are not too costly. With the Nook app on my phone, I get an hour of reading time while on the treadmill - exercise AND reading a good book at the same time, what could be better?? Good for the body and the mind

Reading ebooks of any kind on any screen gives me a wicked headache....so I stick with regular paperbacks. Plus I can trade paperbacks for FREE...so it's a lot cheaper to fuel my reading addiction with regular books than with the oh-so-expensive kindle versions! :)

Both.. I love the convenience of ebooks for travel and variety. But I prefer "real" traditional books for anything that has a lot of maps, charts, etc.

When we got our first kindle I was totally a traditionalist, thought I'd hate it. But I found it served many wonderful purposes.

E-books, let's save some trees.

I've had a kindle for over a year, but rarely use it. I don't like the feel of any e-readers and the font is really strange adjustment. Holding a real book is more comfortable.

I've been reading my books on my cell for over a year. It's weird reading a "real" book now. I would not want to go back to packing 3 or 4 books for vacations either.

I like both.
I have shelves and shelves of traditional books and will still get more in future. I read more e-books than traditional books these days though and there are major advantages to e-books if you read a lot.

I love holding a book and relaxing w/ a cup of tea. If I'm studying, I like to highlight certain passages. If I am reading at night in bed, I use Kindle so I don't disturb my husband :o)

I like ebooks. They are a lot cheaper and take up a lot less space.

I had Jury Duty back in June 2012. I took eleven books on my Kindle. I couldn't imagine carrying eleven paper or hardcover books.

I've always loved traditional books, but ebooks are becoming friends now too, I can travel easier with them and carry a variety of them with me. I love to write in my books, though and that's easier on traditional books--seems more personal too.

I don't have an e-reader, so I guess I prefer traditional books. I just love having a physical book to read...

What I love about ebooks is, it solves the bookshelf space problem but it tires my eyes though.

That said, I still like opening and reading a traditional book.

What about you?
