permalink of course a book, because i like sitting on my bed under the blanket, with a book in my one hand and a tea in my second. i love a smell of pages, especially old books' ones... i love just reading, it's my life.

permalink Book forever and for always! I'm so worried that the coming generations will never hold a book in their hands because of e-books and audio books!

permalink I prefer the book as well, but there are times when I have to get an e-book because of availability of the books I want to read. I can't always find them in stores and they may be on back order online when I order them.

permalink Depends, at home I prefer a normal book, but when I have to go somewhere the e-book is easier since that isn't as heavy... Most books I read have at least 500 pages, and I just started on the LOTR trilogy (that's about 1200 pages)... X3

permalink definitely books! I don't like how ebooks are taking over, and I personally think they are taking away a lot of jobs... I ended up getting my dad a kindle for Christmas though ^.^' He really likes it, and it's very useful... but I still like books

permalink I like regular books and I believe I always will, I love the feel of them and it's easier for me to get into the book that way. But its hard to carry them around when you are going somewhere especially traveling which is why I have a kindle. Plus they are cheaper and it's hard to find some of the books in stores. It is convenient but I think I will still buy books as well.

permalink Recently I really like audiobooks because I don't always have the patience to read, especially if it's from the screen ( I read ebooks only when there's no other option). But this way you can do a few things at the same time while you listen to an audiobook. I think it often also stays in your memory better. Although that depends on the book of course. Besides it can be a lot cheaper than buying real books and takes less physical space, lol. But I'm not saying it's a replacemment because then we will forget how to read. So I say it's gotta be a combination of both.

Audiobooks and ebooks are more enviroment-friendly btw.

permalink Book, I prefer to hold it in my hands, I like having something physical

But I also buy Ebooks too, for shorter books & authors that I'm not very familiar with. Also sometimes authors I like may produce work that they only make available in Ebooks form.

Another thing about Ebooks is that authors can sell themselves, sometimes when an author produces work that is very popular, sometimes they may feel constrained by what the publisher wants then to produce. I can think of one instance of this where I learned that an author whose books I had been reading, was going to make his next novel Ebook only precisely because he did not agree with the direction that the publisher wanted to take novel in. So it may be that Ebook may be a way for authors to produce what they want, bypassing publishers.

I've tried to listen to audio books but didn't like it. But obviously it is invaluable for those who otherwise can not read

permalink I mostly choose 'books' or currently, 'e-books' cause we can carry more than hundreds books in one device. And also, I prefer e-books when I had to read it in poor light condition.
