Do you do more reading of traditional books or more on an ereader or Kindle?

I will on occasion read a physical book, but these days I do almost all my reading on the Kindle. It is simply so easy to download alot of the books I want to read, that I don't bother to do anything else. Some books though I want to read, and are not available online for free, I will go to the library for a real book.

@snowy22315 Library is always a good option for it. Don't you think?

@TheInvisibleMan It depends how new the book is, for popular books there is often a wait. I waited like six months or something once for a book, but actually I think I missed their call or email the first time..

I like real books, I just find it more convenient to read on a tablet.

I don't have a Kindle so all my reading is of 'real' books. I know many people swear by their Kindles.

I think alot of people like their Nooks too. I just consider the Kindle to be one of my best purchases ever, that and my riding lawnmower, both great purchases.

@JudyEv You should try it. Kindle is pretty good.

I thought I'd get used to reading ebooks, but I still prefer holding an actual book to read.

I don't miss holding a book, and I really don't miss having to find storage space for it, or remembering when I have to take it back to the library.

@AmbiePam @snowy22315 I feel the same way. I have to get the book in my hands.

Truthfully, I am not a big reader of books in general, I used to be quite a bit when I was younger, and I would like to get much more in to books again! Anyways, if given the choice (I guess I only have the one choice) I go with physical books, as I do not have a Kindle or ereader, though I do have an iPad Mini, does that count? Haha.. But either way, I would prefer traditional books for sure :)

I do all my activity on here and most other online stuff on a NOOK ereader but I never use it for reading books - I prefer them in traditional hard copy format.

Somebody was selling a Nook online for 30 bucks..I really wanted it..but I didn't have the extra cash. I am not sure how it differs from a Kindle anyway.

@snowy22315 I'm not familiar with Kindle features but I use the Nook for emails, posting here, surfing, YouTube, etc. Some apps aren't compatible with it and I can't do documents but overall I find it indispensable.

@asfarasiknow I think I might like the Nook just for variety, although I really like the Kindle.

I prefer real books. You can drop them and they don't break. They can't get totally wrecked from water. No one wants to steal a paperback. I can make notes on the sides. Easier to hold.

I read more on my Kindle nowadays but still like to read a physical book on occasions. I use the library too.

Yes, I will do both especially if a book on Kindle is more than I want to pay, or is not available from the elibrary app.

I like reading before bed, and they say that you shouldn't look at a screen before sleeping, so I'm still reading mostly real books. Plus, the library doesn't have as many ebooks
