E-Book or Traditional Book?

What type of book do you prefer reading and why?

Traditional for me. Nothing nicer than curling up on the sofa with a good book, a cat or two, big bowl of crisps - and large glass of red wine.

Just not the same with a kindle!

Both, for the larger selection. Ebooks because they are instant, and you don’t get foreign bodies inside the pages (urgh!!!!!). But agree, holding a book can be more convenient, especially when the iPad needs recharging.

Nothing I can add to this, agreeing all the way (except subbing the cat for the dog!)

Real book for me as well. As Jazzi said you donít need a charged iPad to read a real book. Plus I like the smell of new books.

I get most of mine from the library and love being the first borrower! So new. So clean. So untouched.

Traditional books for me. I can't get comfy and snuggled down in bed with an e-reader.
