E-books are very popular today and they are replacing the traditional books regularly.But i like paper-book better because i like the feeling of real book.Another reason is that i hate reading before computer because my eyes hurt.Which do you like better,e-book or paper-book?

I prefer both e-books and paper books. I think both have their unique advantages. In case of e-books, they are very easy to transfer and access. But reading e-books on the PC is very tiring and you can't sit more than an hour. Speaking of paper books, I would say old is gold. You can't replace the pleasure of reading the paper books.

I prefer paper books. I like to be able to read anywhere, and you can't do that on a computer. I also love the smell of books, which you don't get from a computer.

I still prefer paper-book. Maybe because I'm more used to it than to e-book. And I can't bring my e-book everywhere I go, unless I buy myself a nice laptop.

I love to read but I never done it on the internet. I love to read paper book and if I am going to try reading over the net I do not think I would enjoy it. I aerson who love to curl up and read and I do not think I would be able to do that with the computer.

Hi I like to read paper book. Actually I can't read more than one page of e-book at a stretch. It will be strenuous to my eyes. The feel of reading paper books can not be replaced by reading e-books.

I always prefer paper book because they are the ones my eyes never get tired of.It is quite tiresome to read monotonously an e-book gazing on the monitor screen for long. But what I like about e-books is that we can get it easily from internet saving bucks when we don't need to read the entire book & only a portion of the book's content is significant for me.That solves both problems bucks & eyes...!!
