Do you prefer printed or electronic format for books and other reading material?

<< < (2/4) > >>

I get being able to hold a book in my hands, but I like the idea of being able to carry my entire library in my laptop, and therefore, in my backpack. Thanks to micro SD cards, I can keep my library on my phone, too!

As much as I like the idea of having everything on a Kindle or tablet, I enjoy reading on paper so much more. When I read on the Kindle, the book’s content doesn’t really sink in like a book or magazine. So I still buy books and go to the library.

The Internet has its place, especially around discovery of content. But books and magazines are still wonderful.


Depends on what I'm reading, and where. For novels e-books are fine, for more serious reading paper is my choice. We're not allowed to use personal electronic devices at our desks at work, and I haven't gotten around to bringing along some printed material, so Project Gutenberg is my best friend at the moment.

I prefer printed books. I only read ebooks when I can't find a paper book.

Definitely the physical kind of books. Not just for the pleasure of holding them in my hand when reading but just to look at them, standing so proudly in their shelves.
