I prefer to read paperback and hard cover books due to their physical feel but e-books are easy to afford, easy to download and good for the environment plus they enable anyone to easily make extra money from writing and self publishing them.
I prefer reading on the Kindle App. I don't have to wait for Amazon to ship my books even with prime. I can read in the dark with the backlit pages and I can store my full download library in the cloud. A nice lean option.
Only the Kindle for me as well, unless the book I want to read is not available that way. I never know what I may be in the mood to read and it's all right there on my tablet and my smartphone. The instant gratification of delivery with no shipping costs is a big plus too. Another factor for me is when the local book store closed down years ago, and the nearest one is a long drive. I do kind of miss the feel of a real book but I don't miss the clutter of books I've finished filling up bookshelves.
I read both hard cover books and eBooks. I like the convenience of eBooks because they don’t take up space; they are cheaper and are more transportable. Although some books you just have to have in hardcover form because they are such classics and are almost a ‘collector’s’ item.
My favourite authors at the moment are Robert Kiyosaki and Tony Robbins.
Good question. I am on the computer all day with work, so when I read I like to relax. I relate technical devices as work related, so I have not entertained the idea of an e-book. I feel a connection with the paper back. I see everyone using them, but I just don't think I would find it relaxing.
I only read kindle books for 1 whole year and recently started buying physical books - that was when I realized what I had given up on the last year. For me, reading physical books is a whole different and more stimulating experience.
I prefer eBooks. They are more versatile, and depending on which platform and app that I use, I feel more comfortable highlighting, writing notes, and cross-referencing; I don't like writing in real books. I feel like I can read faster on a tablet screen too.
In my case i personally like to read books than ebooks. Why? I feel like book is something like eye-friendly in the sense i dont need to use a gadget, or the lights of the gadget that could affect my eyesight. =)
