i prefer to read a book than online because my eyes cant take to read millions of words in a computer.. i would end up having teary eyes. And i think reading books is much comfy and handy because you can just do all positions you want without taking your eyes from the book and without any fear that you might break it or something, because of moving it as you change positions.

When it comes to me,i do prefer to read books.Now most of the books all can be found on line.but it is really uncomfortable to read on line for eyes.The feeling you hold a book on your hand lying on the bed and reading the books you like.It is enjoyable. It is expensive to buy all of the books you want to read.and i can't borrow whatever books i like from the library.so nowadays i read many books on the internet.I can find nearly whatever i want to read.

I prefer to read a book in print. I can't stand reading it on the internet. The computer screen is too bright, and well I can't carry it around with me when I relax on the porch swing or something.

Definitely prefer having a book, but if it's poetry or a short story that I can't find in the shops or in the library, I'm happy to read it on the screen. Longer texts need to be hard copy though, or else I just end up hurting my eyes.

I prefer a book for sure for different reasons . First U can hold it in ur hands ,make me feel closer to the author :) Then I can brink back anywhere ,don't need electricity ... And the main is that it wouldn't break my eyes .

I prefer to read a book. I can't read on the computer for very long. It gives me a headache.

well, as for me, I prefer to read book in printed than online. In that way, I can read it anytime,anywhere I want. It's not tedious to read it than on the computer. And for me its more comfortable and relaxing to read it on book.

I prefer reading a book. If I have a large document in electronic format that I want to read, I usually print it out first. The positioning of the computer screen just isn't set for comfortable reading.

I quite prefer reading an actual printed book than stare at the monitor for a long time. I am more convenient on reading a book since I can sit how I want and even lay on the couch to be more comfortable. If I could only print all the things I read online.. but, inks not that cheap..

I do prefer read online because there are links to other website and reading books is somehow makes you bored and sleepy especially if you are not used to read books in your life whereas, if I am going to read online there are lots of website which could vanish my boredsome and away from feeling asleep.

Definitely a real book,there is more to it and it doesn't tire my eyes the way computer does. Unfortunately,some books are only available online such as e-books...

I prefer reading books rather than online. This is because I can carry and read the book while moving somewhere. Unlike those on the computer where you need to stay put on it. It is also stressful to the eye in a long reading. So I believe that reading a book is better than reading it's content online. Won't you agree?
