  • Real books, there's just something about the feel of holding the book, turning the pages - it's all part of the experience.

  • Real books are awesome but Ipads are great too. I would do both.

  • REAL book hands down! So many people think I'm nuts because I don't get into the the e-book thing, but I'm old school with reading, I guess. Except for CM lol.

  • I was in the "real book" camp until my DH surprised me with a Kindle at Christmas. I was hooked an hour after getting it, I absolutely LOVE it. I read 4-5 books a week, I can download a new one whenever I want, and they recommend new authors/books to me based on what I read.

  • Its easier for me to have something concrete in my hands. For some reason I can focus better on a book than on a screen. And I'm not talking about distractions, lol. Its more that reading on the screen bugs me. That and I write notes in the margins, so I prefer books for that! :)

  • Real books. I think reading off a lit screen for a prolonged period of time would start to give you a headache. Besides that, there's just something to a real book that I love. Sitting with a nice battered paperback that you've read a few hundred too many times... Wow I sound like a right geek!
