I use both [In reply to] Can't Post

I use both. I was given an e-book-reader for my birthday, and I use it. I see its benefits (don't need to pack a stockpile of books when I'm going away on holiday or over the weekends, and my over-crowded bookshelves might not cave in after all Wink). But first thing I had to do was to buy a protective cover that looks like a book...I just couldn't get used to holding this "thing" in my hands. I needed at least to pretend to open a cover and be able to hold a book in my hands... The reader doesn't feel like a real book, but the cover helped me a lot. However, I miss turning the pages, I miss the smell of fresh paper...

So, to me my e-book reader is fine when I'm travelling, but for every day's purpose (especially now, in wintertime), there's nothing like cuddling up in an armchair, (physical) book in my hands, cat on my lap and something nice and warm to drink. Wink No way I'd give up buying physical books!

Call me Jean-Luc Picard.... Wink
