Yes, indeed, there are many new gadgets coming up in the market. The inventions are really so amazing. For reading, I still prefer reading printed books. I am still a bit old-timer in that sense. I like to relax on a couch while reading my preferred books.

I love the smell of a brand new book & it's printed page. Call me old fashioned but I prefer a good book to any electronic ebook no matter how convenient. I love turning one page after another & being able to see just how much I've read so far. I hope we never come to the point in this world where we lose appreciation for a good book over yet another electronic gadget.

I prefer to read printed books. My husband thinks I am terribly oldfashioned but I like to hold a book in my hand instead of reading ebooks. I have read a few ebooks, because I wanted to read some books that hadn't been translated to Danish. and it was much easier to find them online and read them as ebooks. I get a little tired if I read ebooks for many hours and I find it more relaxing to read printed books. When I read in the bed or in the garden it is also easier for me to read a printed book instead of using my laptop (I am not able to read ebooks on my mobile phone)

If iam reading for an exam, I always read book. I wouldn't read internet for something that I need to concentrate on. I prefer reading internet for news or other reading that I am not serious about.

Ritzz, it is depending on my time. If i am spending more time online, then i will surely spend some time reading those e-books. If i was on traveling and the place that i am going don't have any internet connection, then i prefer to bring along a few books for reading purposes. I like reading books, so won't be feeling bored during traveling. So far, i don't really like reading books through mobile phone since the wording is very small. But, i like reading through my laptop or even my computer.

I love to read paper books. When I finish, I can add the book to my personal library. But, not all books are worth saving.

I have never used a gadget for reading a book actually, but I like printed books a lot. First of all, I like collecting the books that I have read, I love turning the pages and feeling the book in my hands. Sometimes I note quotes that I like in the book and if it is a wonderful and enjoying book, I might give it to my friends to read it as well. For all those reasons, I vote for printed books!

I still prefer paperback and hardback books, but more and more I've noticed that ebooks are cheaper, so I'm torn as to getting an ereader. I'll probably get an amazon kindle, as they're only 75 dollars, but I'm going to wait a while longer before I jump on the ereader bandwagon, lol.

I prefer to read printed books. That too, i like sydney sheldon novels. In net i don't think we can access all novels or books freely. The better place for reading according to me is library, which is meant only for that purpose and also where we can read a thing more than once if we don't understand without any distraction.

Hi, I love to read but not much into hard covered thick books. My reading spectrum extents from daily newspapers to magazines and narrows down to comics. Reading online articles are another way of mine to gain knowledge but I'm not in favor of reading e-books especially on my mobile.My vote goes for printed materials. I feel that having one with me at all times just make my life a bit easier.

I prefer to read printed books because I'm a fan of oldschool reading, and my eyes are not tortured by monitor. However, most of books that interest me are hard to find in stores so I'm forced to read e-books. Both ways are useful but if it,s a matter of wishes and desire, reading printed books have more satisfaction for me.

With the advent of technology, We can't deny the fact that even books are also replaced with new gadgets. I admit I am one of those who read ebooks. The reason why I love to read ebooks is that I can save enough money, all I have to do is download the book for free and I can read the book using my netbook.

I am not fond of reading ebooks on computer or else reading books on mobile. I prefer the paperback books where I can read whenever I want to. I do not have a huge collection of books now but will buy a few this month.

I prefer reading printed books rather than ebooks. ebooks I can read if it is only one or two pages. I get typing work done and take a print out for many pages, i read the script and correct. It is convenient.

I doesn't like to reed books much but I like to write something. I mostly used to read the articles or news paper which is available to me. I love those things very much. I read each and every articles which are related to computers. I love articles much and more and I used to read printed books if nothing is there.
