Hello happybear, Based on your number of post, you are new here so Welcome to myLot! Does papery reading means reading books, newspaper, magazine, etc, right? Well I still prefer that kind of reading. If I find an interesting article or story online, I would find an option to print it and before I read it. Happy mylotting!

To be honest, I prefer papery reading. I have a difficult time reading things online and I've always preferred reading from books and being able to carry them around, and such. I guess that it's just the way that I'm used to doing things and the way that my body does things and such.

I like paper better even though it's easier for me to carry around an Ipod (with audio books) than a physical book with my mobility impairment. However, I have yet to come up with a way to curl up with an Ipod the way I can curl up with a book. When, and if, I figure that out my answer may be different.

I hate electronic reading. Paper all the way. That being said I am trying to be more environmentally friendly and am considering a Kindle (?). I don't know if I can do it though. I try to stick to used books. There is just something so nice about turning the pages and seeing how far you have come in your journey.

Paper reading. My eyes get tired and starts to hurt when I read on the computer for a couple of hours. Paper reading is much better, your risk of getting radiation is definitely very low.

hi,in my view all depends upon on comfortableness with electronic or paper reading.if you are reading a lot on paper then its easy for you to be book friendly but if you are a gadget freak person then you go with electronic reading.it also goes like if your interested articles are on book or on electronic...today every newspaper and magazines comes both paper and electronic.again it's all up to you

I love reading or atleast I like to believe that I love reading as long as it is not a reading comprehension passage in some exam :p Its easier to handle paper material as I can read while lying on the bed, turning sides etc. And also sitting long hours in front of the desktop or laptop can be harmful if proper measures are not taken.I even kinda feel an anxiety while reading online. I feel more comfortable when it is in my hand. When I know for sure I can preserve it. Especially while reading articles online I kind of have this feeling that maybe I will never find it again, in the process I end up desperately bookmarking lots of pages. But these days I am getting used to reading online, reading e-books and also I m taking my laptop to the bed and reading it like I would from a book. So the ratio has become 50/50 almost :)

Paper. I cannot read off the computer and I still cannot bring myself to spending that much money on a Kindle.

I prefer the the paper way, because that's what books are. I like to keep it traditional, and I like the feeling of leafing through pages after pages. It gives me a sense of accomplishment. Electronic reading is really tiring to the eye, and I don't like staring at one screen for a long time. It gets quite boring. That's why I don't really read electronic books, or even long paragraphs. I'm ok with lengthy paragraphs on papers, but on a computer screen, I just can't take it XD
