Hello. In fact, I like to read in the library. It is more relaxing to browse through the shelves in the library, get the book I like to read, and sit down at a comfortable place, read the book, relax, and enjoy ! That's how I would like spend a couple of hours over the weekends. I used to go to the library every weekend before, but these days, just once a month only.

I have just begun to explore the books on the internet. I have gone through some of them. It is quite fun.

I love library cos it is my foundation in my learning. And I'm a former student librarian. I visited many libraries in my life. My mother has a personal library and we have lots of book in our house. And appreciated by people passing by to our home. Now a days there are also electronic dictionaries or the internet is a big help, too. Have a great day.

I don't like going to the library to read or borrow the books. As I have to return it. Besides, the books in the library are old and dirty. I prefer to buy new books. I also like to read the Ebooks. I have a software in my mobile phone, I like to listen to txt format books from it as this software can speak for me. That's nice. I love China

I prefer books better..Now this may sound weird but books have more heart.I alsolove the smell of seasoned books it triggers good and sometimes powerful memories for me.You can hide stuff in them preserve stuff in the pages..etc.Where as an electronic book has none of that.Give me a musty book over that any day.

The public library in my city is quite far from where I live, so my sister and I just buy books and read them at home. Not that I'm against e-books, but I just prefer the 'real' thing more. Owning a book. I just don't see how pixels in a lighted box can be considered as a 'book.' Then again, it's actually environment friendly opposed to buying bound paper with ink in them.

I prefer books, not only because they're handy and you can take them with you everywhere, but also because reading electronic books is very damaging for my eyesight. My eyes get extremely tired soon, so I'm still a paper person.

Books have their own charm...nothing can replace them...even when you are a technology freak, i don't think anyone would prefer electronic books... when i don't get some books in the market or can't but it because of its price, and suddenly one day i find it in the net or somebody sends me the copy of the book via email... the first thing i do is take a print out of the whole thing... bind it properly and i get my own book... i have many books in my collection now which don't have a front page print...simply because they were all downloaded from some source...

I much prefer books. I don't like to be read to, like with books on tape or cd. It's my way of relaxing in the evenings when I get home from work and get the house things done in the evenings, such as cooking dinner and helping the kids with homework. Every night, after everything is done and the kids are in bed, you can bet that I'm reading, at least for a little while, before I go to sleep.
