Which do you prefer having/reading physical or digital copies of books, and why? Personally, I enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that I hold possession of the tangible copy of a book as personal property rather than a file on a computer, but I'd like to see your opinions.

I prefer a physical book, and I'd order a physical copy if I don't need it straight away. However, I order a lot of digital books because I get them instantly and can start reading (I only really do this for educational books).

I personally prefer physical books. Just having a book in my hand feels better.

In all honesty, I prefer audio books instead.

I read both paper and e-books, and listen to audiobooks. Each has their place. I think the most important thing is experiencing the writing, no matter how you do it.

I personally like physically having the book in hand! Love not having to worry about batteries dying, or damage if dropped. (can be accident prone)

Physical - I like the smell of the book pages and the feel of it in my hands.

For absorbing the content I prefer physical books, but it's really convenient to have a digital copy that you can easily take anywhere.

Physical.

But digital books are easier to get and much faster.

Having a physical copy is always the best.

But I admit I read way more digitally because of the convenience.

I prefer digital. I move internationally a lot so digital means my collection follows me easily.
