I'd probably have to say I prefer real books, just to give you an answer. It's REALLY hard to say though! They both have their pros and cons. I do like the feeling of being able to read wherever I'm at on a tablet or phone etc, and I don' t have to worry about any sort of storage. At the moment I would have to say one of my favorite authors of all time is Paulo Coelho, his book "The Alchemist" really was one of the first Eye-Openers I ever had, when it came to self development.
