Re: E-Book or Traditional Book?

So, it seems there’s consensus - we all prefer traditional books. I thought perhaps I’m old fashioned but it seems that I’m not

Re: E-Book or Traditional Book?

I don't mind or prefer either but my ereader holds 100s of books and can go anywhere with me, so much more convenient. (and it has a light!)

Having said that the last three books I have read were hardbacks as it happened.

Oh and my ereader has never run out of battery, it lasts for months and I can recharge it in my car.

Mine is a Sony, not fond of Kindle they just seem to be a crippled Android tablet.

Re: E-Book or Traditional Book?

We have 12 book cases in our house 7 of them are floor to ceiling. So you can guess my preference. my wife was given a kindle as a b day gift. She used it once.

Re: E-Book or Traditional Book?

I bought one of the original Kindles but as I now have the iPad with the Kindle app, the original device is all but redundant and confined to a drawer somewhere.

You are right Dex. Nothing worse than reading a book and finding some pages missing or worse
