I read only online......for multiple reason that relate with money. 1) I am NOT driving 15 minutes to go to Barnes and Nobles to read their selection in store 2) I don't have the money to buy volumes at said book store. I also find that it is too little material for too much cost to even be effective (Although I do have a massive chunk of the FMA volumes packed up somewhere.......) 3) Most of the stuff I've been reading, isn't at said book store.

I gave up the "vice" of downloading anime, and paid for the membership here. Not going to lie, if I had the same option for online manga readers, I think I'd jump all over that.

I pretty much stopped reading manga online (minus the occasional hentai ). It's just not the same as a book
But i am tempted sometimes, because the selection is soooooo much bigger obviously since people translate them for free. I have read some good manga in the past that isn't available in North America (but if it was, I'd buy it in a second).

Yup. I do buy here and there sometimes. But 99% of my reading is either online or at Barnes and Noble.

I buy my manga, but I don't hide the fact I do read them for free. I do however have an app on ipod/iphone/ipad that updates the manga but has advertisements while you read. If I could I would buy said manga but they do not have it other here. Same as the light novels, Hyoka and countrouble are prime examples.

The issue I have is that the manga can be expensive and especially now since it's nearly been 2 years without any kinds of offers. Not to mention I was about to buy some, but before confirming did I find out that it would actually be in french/german/japanese and not one of them was in the english language.

I'm kind of hoping they eventually move to digital, seeing as that was how I saw manga originally. It works better with double pages, since A small piece is usually cut off when it connects the spine of the book.

I buy more manga than anime. But lately I have been reading more anime online, and just buying my favorites.

Series I can get from VIZ manga I buy online. Their site compared to other online distributers is the best.
If I cant get it online usually I then go to amazon or ebay and buy print.
If it is not in english liscensed then I read for free from translators.

Yes, but if I really like them I buy them.

I usually borrow them from the library, but if I know the manga I want to read isn't available in english or isn't at a library near my house, I read it online. I usually borrow books from the Library because I honestly find it easier to read the actual book.
