Today, we are in a fast-changing world. Thats why many of us are quiet accustomed to many other electronic devices and internet. For reading, we can also read the traditional book or newspaper, I means paper book, or the eletronic book with computer. Which method do you like? But still I like to read a paper book. I don't like to read using the computer. It hurts my eyes. How about you??Be free to post. Thanks!! Happy Mylotting!!

The idea seems so great.That there are all the materials the world can offer on the net and you just have to go online and read them.Or you can download and keep the materials on yur system and read them at your leisure.But for me nothing is more convenient than having the reading material in your hands and curling back and enjoying a read.For me this is more convenient and eyes-friendly too.And I don't have to bother about online bookmarking and keeping the link names in mind and stuff too.

I actually prefer the paper back books and everything to anything electronic. I just like being able to sit with a book and not have to squit at a screen or anything. That and I love how old books feel in my hands and love being able to find them easily.

I like to read real book and newspaper than read electronic media.I feel not interesting to read by electronic media.Maybe because it is too simple and not interested.

Reading is my maWhenever I travel I carry a paper book with me. I really find long journeys boring. At least I have something to do if I carry a book. I like reading paper books...Apart from it I have a very less time to spend with books nowadays as I have to work. So,I am much more addicted to electronic media just to maintain my habit of reading.

I can't afford a newspaper subscription so for now I get my news from the internet. But I like to read books, I just got Amazon's Kindle and I love it. Its so much easier to read anywhere, and I really mean anywhere. I think eventually books will be electronically. Because it is so conveniant, since you can find certain things much faster, taking notes is much organized and you can really save on paper.

Hi tuyakiki...I am with you. I would rather have the paperback book in my hand reading it then trying to read a book from the computer. The monitor also bothers my eyes sometimes if I try to read from it for to long a period and I would probably get upset if I got to a real interesting part in the book and then had to get up and walk away from it. Computers are good to talk and do searches and play games and that on, but as far as reading a book goes..I say I would rathr have the book in hand. flutterby

books - stack of books
I can read anything, but I don't read a lot of actual books, so I think the computer helps and I read some magazines. So basically I just do a little bit of every type of reading. I can never stay with a book(usually), unless it's extremely good.

I somehow have got addicted to electronic reading oflate! I understand that e-reading will not give you the comfort of lying down and reading or going to a quieter place. But when i read online i have access to many other websites or links too. i can quickly look for a review of an ebook i've just downloaded :)
