Much prefer the feel of the printed books in my hand, and turning the pages, a book can be taken anywhere for however long. If you are reading a PDA or laptop you have a certain amount of flexibility but need a power source.

internet is helpful in terms of updates on the topics on sciences while printed materials are good for literature

I prefer buying books. I am a fan of bookstores. I can spend most of my time there going through every shelves and sections that they have. I still prefer the traditional way. I guess this won't change no matter how accessible online stories are.

I prefer print reader as reading online is very tiring. My eyes will feel tired and stressed out after reading online.

I definitely prefer to read regular printed books. I don't think I'd like having to sit at the computer to read books all the time. I like having an actual book in my hands so that I can carry it with me to read whenever I have free time. That way I can just put it in my bag, or I can read it in bed or even while I take a bubble bath sometimes! hehe :)

I am both. I really love reading and I read in any way I could. :) I have a wide collection of books but I tend to read more online. Reading is required, as always, right?

Hi hailsferrer, tt depends on situation. If I couldn’t find the book which I want to read I then will read the ebook. In case I need to make any note on the pages while reading, I have to get a book from the book shop. It is handy and more convenient to read a book than an ebook. Moreover it is friendly to our eyes while reading.

I prefer to have a book in hand when I read. It's more convenient because I can take it anywhere and it won't get in the way like a laptop might (if I HAD laptop). Also, I can always lay it down and take a nap, only to wake up and go immediately back to the book. It's just nice to have something handy, ready to transplant you to another place.

I still prefer to read books in print. You can take them anywhere, they are easily accessable and it's easy to see how much you've read and how much you've got to go.

I enjoy reading articles on the computer. But when it comes to looooong literature pieces, I prefer reading it on printed pages like books. I really find it hard to read long texts on the computer.

I don't reject to read paper-books, but I'm very interested in reading e-books on computers or pocket Pc's because it is less tiring. It is a question of light. Moreover it is also a question of space at home. In a PC or even a Pocket Pc can be stored hundreds of books.

I prefer reading books to digital documents. Online reading can get really tiring for my eyes.

I prefer reading the traditional books. That way, i can relax on my chair while reading it, while having coffee and chocolate chip cookies. When I am reading online, I kinda get distracted with the internet. My tendency is to browse and reply IM's... And I cannot eat nor drink near my computer too.

I'm here at the computer for pretty much every waking hour of the day, but that's for research and 'playing'. I could never read an online book. I mostly read in bed, and since I don't have a laptop, I don't think that would be an option, LOL ...

For fiction I only read the printed form, but I spend hours each day reading online for research and information, and internet discussions of course.
