Digital Reader or Printed Book?



Which do you prefer a digital reader or good old fashioned printed books?

For me it is printed books but I haven't tried a digital reader yet.

Like you I have not tried a digital reader but I know I love books and am guessing I prefer them.

I think a digital reader is so convenient. You have your whole library in one unit.

I love both - but I've been really going to town reading more since hubby bought me a Kindle for my birthday! :)

To me a book is a book no matter what format it is...I read on my Kindle all the time. If I can't find a book available on the Kindle I might get it in paperback.

I always swore I would never get into digital readers/ebooks...but since I got an iPad and have the kindle app on it, I'm starting to enjoy it. I also have kindle on my phone which is awesome! I think I will still always prefer an actual book in my hand but there are pros to both.

I think it depends on the book. I like being able to read classics on my kindle so I can easily look up older or unknown words, but I do love being able to hold a book. My bookshelves overflowing with books probably think that my Kindle is saving their life! haha

I am an avid reader, and just can't give up the idea of holding a "real" book in my hands.

I love holding a good book in my hands.

I have not yet tried a reader, but I'm not all that warm towards them at the moment.

I tend to prefer printed books but I do have a color nook and it's pretty cool. Although I have to fight to get a turn on it since my daughter loves it -- I rarely get to even see it :-)

I'm going to go with Kindle. I said the same thing about holding a book in my hands and turning the pages, until I got a Kindle. I absolutely love it and love that I can through it in my bag and always have something to read.

I would love to try a digital reader one day. I don't think it would be the same to "curl up with a good reader" as it is "curling up with a good book".

I just HAD to have a digital reader so my awesome husband bought me one for Christmas. I'm sad to say that I have used it once, for the browser while waiting in a food court. I like the idea of it...
The truth is, I love holding a book. New, used, old & abused, classics, best seller, or a trashy paperback romance I like the sound the pages make when I turn it.
You just can't get all that from a electronic device.

I use both because my mom gave me one for Christmas, but I would choose a good old fashion book any day!

Actually, I really enjoy audio books. Listening to books allows me to knit at the same time, or do something else while "reading" my book. I have never used a digital reader yet (spend enough time with my computer).
