I'm a bookworm and eversince I discovered E-books I started to read on my smartphone. It is easier, I can read even when the lights are off, I can read anywhere. But sometimes I just miss the smell of good old books. How about you? Which one do you prefer?

I'm pretty much disorganized and I traveled a lot in the past. It was more convenient to have ebooks on my smartphone than bring hardbound books with me. But when I am home I still would like to read from an actual book.

I prefer both of them. It is because there are also advantage and disadvantage of books and ebooks. I sometimes choose a book if my eyes is hurting for too much reading in front of a computer, but I am also use ebook if I was doing something online and I want something to read, I just turn it to ebook and read it.

Books :) I have nothing against e-books and in fact I like some of their features, like it's easy to download them and as you said, you can read them in the dark. But I still like books better. I grew up with books so naturally right now books for me cannot be replaced by e-books.

I used to prefer ebooks over traditional books. However, I find it exhausting to my eyes compared to reading real printed books. If you really want the portability of ebooks, I guess buying a kindle or barnes and nooble ebook reader is a good idea. Also, I just recently became aware that it's also illegal to download certain ebooks, unfortunately most ebooks that are being distributed online are being distributed without permission from the authors and publishers.

I prefer to read real books,but in fact I read E-books more.Because E-books got easier and didn't occupy space.It is the same feeling with me.E-books has many convenience,but we lose the smell of reading.

That is a tough choice. I love both of them. The easy access of ebooks. But there is nothing like curling up in front of a warm fire with a good book on your lap and a big cup of hot cocoa. Yeah.
