I prefer physical books. I do have a nook book though and get most of my books on there, but that's because I'm just renting a room in a house and might have to move out at any moment. Moving all of my books from place to place would be a huge hassle.

Physical books
feeling the real cover and pages is better

Physical books myself, I love the feeling of thumbing through pages on a warm day.

Reading on the go hurts my eyes and gives me headaches and induces travel sickness -__-

I felt sick just looking at a guy with a Kindle on the train....

Physical though coz a screen light would just fuck my eyes up even more.

I'd have to say I prefer physical books, although I wish I had some extra space. I still re-read a very good portion of what I have, mainly when I can remember when the last time I read a particular book. I thought about getting one of those tablets but I just didn't like how they felt.

I prefer paper books. I like holding it in my hand, turning that page, and smelling that paper smell. I don't know why. It just really kills my eyes to read through online text. However, I think ebooks are much better. Less expensive, less trees being cut down, and not easy to ruin. You have no idea how many times I spilled a drink on a book, or have ripped the pages by accident


Lmao i couldn't agree with you more! The feel of an actual book is what appeals to me the most.

Physical books for me, just hearing the sound of the page turning and the feel of paper (probably sounds crazy but it's why I prefer physical books over mordern devices ) I think technology has developed way too much

Nothing can replace a good (real) book. Nothing.

Depends how much I love the book. If I love it badly I need to own it and not just some data on eBook or something like that.

For some reason I finish the e-books faster than the physical books. o.o
So I prefer e-books.

I've had this debate many times with my friends and I always stand for physical books because it gives you a better feel, physically and mentally. And I like to preserve what's left of the non-technology stuff I have.

Physical books. I mean you hurt and strain your eyes reading, so why not pick the one that won't cause more damage? Besides, the feel of a physical book has a more satisfying feel than a virtual one.

I don't mind both, but sometimes when I try to read something of a screen, I get a bit fuzzy in the eyes, so I probably prefer physical books a bit more:P
