With kids it's so much easier to read it on some form of an e reader.

I don't like ebooks. I prefer the physical book in my hand. I'm equal on hardcover and papaerback though.

Paperback and ebook mostly, but occasionally I do enjoy the feel of a hardback book

I'm a sucker for my Kindle... Don't have to hold those pesky little pages open! Hahaha.

If I had an e-reader I would use it. But I do love the tactile experience of reading a paperback. The feel of the pages, the sound as they turn.

Definitely depends on the book. If I need to take notes in the margins, paper is king.

Paperback is my perfered way. I will read an ebook if I have to, but there's something about it that I don't like for some reason.

I voted paperback, but I also have come around to liking ebooks also. I like being able to download a sample chapter to read before I purchase it.

I like paperback. Most hardback are an awkward size for me and just don't have the same feeling. I have not yet went to the technology side and gotten a kindle or anything like that. I enjoy the smell of a book and having it in my hands.

I prefer hardcover books, generally, but it isn't a strong enough preference for me to spring for hardcover when I'm buying myself a book (unless it's just come out and I need to have it, of course).

Paperback - I carry whatever books I am reading everywhere with me as I use public transportation as my main mode of transport so its always good to have a good book on hand. I also am a fan of folding my book over so yea can't really do that w/ hardcover. I also tend to write notes and highlight the hell out of books. If I like a book enough and know I want to save it for my kids one day I go and invest in buying an additional hardcover copy.

I prefer all three, but in different situations:

Paperback: If I like a book or need to use it for reference, I like paperbacks. This way, I have a physical copy of the book but it doesn't take up obnoxious amounts of space.

Hardbound: If I really love a book, I like having it in hardbound, to protect it for longer.

E-Reader: I love having almost every book I own on my e-reader, even ones I have the physical copies of! This means that I can always have them with me, with my favorites on my phone (even though I hate reading on it) and roughly three thousand books on my Kindle (which fits in most of my non-clutch purses), and even more on my laptop. It's great since I can have a ton of books without the clutter.

I have had a Kindle in the past, but ended up using it more for the games. Nothing beats the feeling of holding a book in your hands. I read more paperbacks than hardcovers, however, I don't really prefer one over the other.

I like hardbound books for the added durability, but as long as it's ink on paper, I'll read it.
I do read "E-books" once in a while, but if the e-book craze kills the printed book industry so help me...

I can understand wanting to save trees, but trees are a much more renewable resource than the electricity e-readers need to work, given that much of our electricity comes from fossil fuels.

Last time I checked, it was a hell of a lot easier (and quicker) to go plant a tree than it was to wait for more coal to form somewhere.
Personally, if we had the money to do it, we'd probably go 100% solar power.

Paperback and hardbound, but I'm not a big fan of the electronic book.

I'd go solar, too! I want to get a rechargeable unit to run the computer and e-reader, cell phone, etc off of if power goes out. I have hand crank stuff, but want a solar unit. Matter of fact, I want to be totally off the grid, but that is unrealistic for my situation, so I have back ups and backups for my backups, lol! After losing a ton of money in frozen food when the tornado hit me, I can well attest to the prudence of having all those dried and freeze-dried supplies I have. I only wish I had been able to can up more things so they weren't lost, argh! Slowly but surely, I am getting better prepared for anything.

You know what is the biggest disappointment for me with e-books? The bullshit they told us about how they would be cheaper and also that we could customize out reading experience. As it is, we all know about the crap surrounding the prices. But there are only some ebooks that let you adjust the font and scale, but they always throw off the spacing if you use them and you don't have many choices. I want to be able to manipulate them the way I want to see them. I want to use comic sans in bold because it's easier for me to read and I wand the page layout to be the same, not in strange 2-line paragraphs that make it hard to tell who is saying what when you enlarge the scale!
