Would you consider a book reader like Amazon's "Kindle" and Barnes and Noble's "Nook" replace your traditional reading books? The launched of both devices in book industry definitely will affect the lifestyle our future, and we might embrace it as convenience. You won't need to store boxful of books or a shelfful of books. You simply press a few buttons, you could view millions of book available, and you can even purchase your favorite books through this device. What is your take on it?

I love when I read it with my own eyes. Feels better and I can understand easily than someone or something read it for me.

I'm kinda old school. I prefer to actually hold the book in my hands. I like turning the pages! You don't have to recharge it! The batteries won't run down and I don't have to sit near a plug in!

Nothing beats reading an actual book in the end. I just don't like the font on those book readers. Maybe its just a problem with me. It just seems hard on my eyes. Plus, I am so used to reading books. I would have to think and adapt to use something like the Kindle. Books are much easier on both me and my eyes in the end.

I don't like e-books. I like having the book right there in my hands. I like turning pages and watching my bookmark slowly creep forward. I can't take an e-book with me, because e-books are not supported by my phone and I'm not going to buy a several hundred dollar device just to be able to read a book wherever I go. Then there's the whole technology thing. I don't think my book should need batteries... and God forbid my book ever crash! Traditional paper books for me, thank you!

Although book readers turn out to be convenient, I don't know how to explain it but i really love the smell of a book...yes, the smell.
