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.
I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.
I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!

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.

It's a new dawn.... It's a new day.... It's a new life for me... And I'm feeling good...
I will be overweight for a little bit longer ...but starting TODAY, I will be a little less overweight than I was yesterday! (Borrowed from another Sparkfriend)

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! :)
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)

Nothing like the feel of a good, solid book in my hands!
Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

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.
My weight is day by day becoming more dependent upon Whose I am than on my circumstances and feelings.
Life here is a one-time deal. I want to live it well.

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a secondís encounter with God and with eternity" -Paulo Coelho Alchemist

I like both!
Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.
A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.
Which do you prefer? The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?
