Paper and kindle paper white.

Paper is my fave. And I can't resist browsing books in used book stores and libraries. Something about it that is special and soothing. And if I love a book I have to buy a hard cover copy of it to keep on my bookshelf. I cannot afford to buy every book I read but I do buy some. Just the smell of a bookstore....

I use library books mostly. And I also have a kindle paperwhite. I can only stand a screen that is soft and black and white otherwise my eyes hurt. Paper white is genius. But I only use it for getting really great 99 cent or free books from amazon. Book bub has been awesome for finding those deals.

I have a kindle and I have physical books. The kindle fits in my tiny purse so it's great for travelling and carrying out a book especially one that's over 500 pages.

I prefer a real book. Although I do use the Kindle quite often. Sometimes its just easier (vacation, getting library books, etc)

Normally, I'm a paper book kind of girl all the way, even though I now own my 2nd Kindle. But lately, I have been into reading on the Kindle, especially when the book has text to speech, because I seem to get more into the story that way when I'm not only reading it but hearing it.

My preference is paper. I buy some books but most are from the library and used book stores. I use my Nook for magazines and news. When I want to multitask I listen to audiobooks from the library.

I have all kinds, but prefer reading books on my Kindle - I can read it easily when exercising by changing the font size. We also ran out of room for bookshelves in the house. With a Kindle, it does not matter how many I have. The Kindle is small. Also, when we travel, it is much easier to pack my Kindle to have something to read than to worry about carrying books around. I've also started listening to Audible books and they are great .

Yes, yes, and yes.

It really just depends on the situation. Most of the time I prefer paper. For re-reads I prefer my Nook. If it is illustrated, I prefer paper. Older books I'll read on the Nook. Newer books I'll get from the library. Books I plan to read soon, library (paper). Books I play to read whenever, Nook.

Also, for about six months I was getting free books from BookBub.Those went to my Kindle Reader which is on my iPad. Lastly, I just got an audiobook from the library which I'll listen to on my PC browser. So, I'm basically an all-media reader.

I generally read 3 books at the same time. In the house I read paper (old paperbacks for the bathtub and hardcover library books in bed or during the day when I have time) My kindle I use only outside of the house ( the stable, work, doc appoints etc.)

I live books--real books with paper pages--but I am reading more and more on my Kindle. Periodicals are particularly good for Kindle reading, because the Kindle versions don't accumulate in the house. Today I read part of a book on my PC, because I wanted to see the illustrations in color.
