What's your favorite way to read a book?


[A] E-book
[B] Paperback
[C] Hardcover
[D] Other


I'm going with A for the convenience, although there's something to miss about that tangible quality of physically holding and turning each page. A physical book's got character that the ebook just can't match. Ever notice the scent of a physical book?

Paperback. Haven't quite gotten the hang of e-books yet. Hardback is okay, but tends to be more expensive. Paperbacks are great for carrying, reading in the tub, and so much more.
This is a common answer that I'm coming across!! People seem to go with Paperback or Hardcover. I thought there would be more E-Book lovers simply for the convenience, but it appears I'm wrong!!
paper and/or hardback. I just got an ereader and I'm hoping it doesn't trigger migraines like reading on the computer can
Well, does it have the e-ink display? The e-ink is very easy on my eyes. The LCD displays like on a smartphone or tablet, start to strain the eye and I find myself dozing off into never never land.
Wow really? You sold it? The main thing I don't like about Kindle is that half the time, the Kindle prices are higher than the paperback. I also don't like how I've got so many books overfilling the house. It gets too cluttered!!!
Probably paperback, but I also like hardcover too. I like folding the cover around the book while I am reading.
Paperbacks. Though for collecting I prefer hardbacks, and like to have a few books on my phone in case I'm caught somewhere with nothing to read.
I definitely try to keep the phone reading to a minimum, but I have the Kindle app on there for those special moments. It's amazing to me how few people are saying ebook (I've got this post on a few different outlets!!)
I'd like hardcover if they weren't twice the price or just starts to take too much from my pocket....and then can't fit it in there!

Paperback. I tried e-books and I realized it's not for me. It's convenient, sure. But there's nothing like touching paper and feeling the weight of a book in your hand. Also, the smell of paper.

Most interesting thing, I was on a flight from here (los angeles) to Florida back in June 2012 and I noticed that everyone on my flight had tablets or e-readers. I had a connecting flight in Kansas City. Everyone on that flight had books!

I just recently rediscovered my library card. It's been fun reading for free :)
That is interesting. Pace of life? At our library we're able to check out an ebook, however most ebooks have super long wait lists. I should definitely look into it again. There's this book I want to read after I finish A Walk To Remember, something with a Bob the cat, I forget. I'm gonna try paperback next!
Trade paperbacks. Small enough to slip into a purse or backpack but not quite so tiny as mass market paperbacks.
My favorite is the one I can find when I want it. I love books in all forms. I've been reading on a hand-held electronic device since 1990, so I was in early on the ebook thing. And I still have those original ebooks which I keep updating the format for so my new readers can still use them (thank you, calibre). But I still read paper and hardback. I do like having some books, particularly ones I find inspirational, locally, and frequent rereads in etext.
But I don't use electronics on Fri/Sat so I will always want enough paper books to get me through that.
Wow, that's really cool. I had no idea there were devices like that in 1990. What was that, a PDA? I have a whole stack of paperbacks to get to. Every once in a while I mix in one. I also have a back log on my kindle though. There isn't enough time in the day!!
