It's simple really, you either pick answer one or two depending on the method which you initially started reading manga.

Answer 1 includes (but is not limited to): Tankobons (manga books), magazines, LEGAL online services (this probably means you had to pay to read it) etc. Basically anything legal.

Answer 2 includes (but is not limited to): ILLEGAL online services (online readers, downloads etc that you didn't pay for will probably go here), stealing (I'll be very surprised if ANYONE had this method) etc. Basically anything illegal.

My introduction to manga was through tankobons, which I read at my friends place back when I was around 8. But I would never have started reading so much if it wasn't for online readers, I guess you could call them my real introduction to manga as I had only read 2 series before that.

I bought the first volume of Yotsuba&! at a book sale which is pretty much the only manga I've ever owned. Now I always read manga online (illegally *cough*).

eyah, there are no bookstores around here that sell manga, and if there was I'd be too lazy to go. Like the person above, I read manga online.

I did originally see manga in Waterstones after I liked anime (which i guess is an illegal source)
so I did put the second option, since i read it online after buying 30 manga books hahaaa :3

Tankobons from the library but the choices were limited.
I think it's fair to say that more than half, if not most, read through online services now.
