I am not very interested in reading on the computer because my eyes will feel so tiring. And it will cause a worse eyesight since facing the computer for a long time will have a bad effect on the eyesight. I prefer to read the normal books much more. I love China

To be honest, I prefer reading printed versions of books. I have a difficult time reading e-books. I find that it is hard on my eyes, and my eyes get tired a lot more easily, when I read e-books. I don't have the same problem when reading printed versions of books as I do when I read e-books. Besides I somewhat prefer reading printed versions of books. I always have.

Nope I don't prefer to read on the computer, not only because it stresses out my eyes, but also because I've grown up with reading books. I like the smell of new books and the feel of it. It's a completely different feeling! Once in a while I do read of the computer but those are only references and papers, not really books that I would enjoy. Every once in a while I visit the bookstore to get something for myself. Even if I don't have the time to read them all throughout, I like to flip through and I like it very much. I don't think books are going away in a while!

Depends what I'm reading really, if it's a novel then I'll be reading for hours so I don't want to be staring at the computer screen constantly and straining my eyes. I think reading a paper book is much more fun plus sometimes the book smells good and I just like to have something in my hand to hold while I'm reading.

No i prefer to read the printed version of a book rather than its digital version. Not only is it useful to our eyes,but also gives a totally different feel to reading.A feeling that cannot be obtianed by reading the digital version.

well i really have a lot of friends that spend most of their time reading by the computer but I am actually not one of them. I will prefer to read a real book which I can hold and turn the pages with my own hand. I don't care whether people will call me an expired person or what so ever as long as I fully satisfy it is all that matters.
