That's pretty tough. I guess I wouldn't mind reading digital if I actually had a tablet. With the exception of manga! I don't know what it is, but I definitely continue to buy physical copies of those.

Physical for any reading material unless someone lends me their tablet to read something

Physical books as objects are wonderful... the weight, the size, the feel of the cover and the pages, the font, the smell, the yellowing of the paper as it ages. I love that. I dog-ear pages, underline passages, leave odd bookmarks in the pages to be discovered at a later time. Of course I hate dusting my bookshelves and I hate hauling my books when I move. And most of them I will never read again. So why keep them?

I can see the allure of the digital book... one device, thousands of books on it at the touch of a button! Nice! However, the texture, the screen and lighting, the batteries... it can lead to a less than stellar interaction with the text. I just can't make myself do it!

PHYSICAL BOOKS ALL THE WAY

Books smell amazing and look great on a bookcase but they take-up more space than I'd like.
So I got a Kindle. Since then, almost everything I've wanted to read has been released print-only

Oh definitely physical. There's something magical about holding a book in your hand. I don't think I could ever go digital

Honestly? I prefer physical. There is just something about a regular book that is so addicting. I have this one copy of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest and I just love it. I could probably write a love story about it.

But for efficiencies sake, ninety-eight percent of the books I buy are digital. It's simply a matter of not having enough room to fit all the books I buy.

Preference goes to physical. I can't seem to concentrate in front of a screen, and holding it seems to work better.

However, digital if you want free stuff... ahha.

Well, when I'm on the go, I'll usually read stuff either on my phone or on my old Nook Color. But if I'm at home, I prefer physical books. I like owning the series. In my bedroom alone, I have nine bookshelves overflowing with books, plus my dresser and desk are piled high with books on my "to read" list

Digital, because i can't read properly.

I prefer a physical copy. For some reason I can't focus when I try to read on a phone or computer.

I like both, but reading a lot more digital than hard copy at this point.

I'm a point in my life where I no longer want physical stuff. I have two large comic boxes that I've filled and convinced myself would be worth something someday, and every time I move I just want to throw them away. I prefer digital now, but I kind of just skim through them when I read them in that format.

Digital seems more... convenient.
