I read both regular books and read ebooks on my tablet. It all depends what I'm in the mood for.

I like reading ebooks because you get them instantly whereas with regular books you have to wait for them to be shipped or you have to go out and buy them.

I tend to read more when I'm reading from an ebook vs a regular book.

I do like to physically have a book in my hand and I like the turning of pages.  :D

I read actual books and I also read books on iBooks. I like the digital version of books. But there is nothing like holding book in your hands.

Even if it is online or an ebook it it still a book.  My cousin will not touch an ebook.  I don't get it.  I can have one book I carry with me or I can have 1000 books in one small device and carry with me.  For someone who loves to read what is better?  ONE book or a THOUSAND books?  : D

I read books. They don't strain my eyes as bad as reading from a computer.

 :) I read both online and paper books. I actually like the feel and smell of a traditional book. Sorry Kindle.  :)

I love to read the actual books.  I love the way they smell.  Occasionally, I do read books on my Nook that I have downloaded.

I enjoy reading paper books. I grew up before TV was really going, so our enjoyment was reading and listening to some of the radio programs.  And when TV did get popular it was in black and white and was off the air by 10 p.m..  I was a night owl and would read until late night when I could. But  when we were small and living out in the boonies there was no electricity so we read by lamps (coal oil). and or candles. Not a lot of good light. It wasn't a bad life but would not like too do it again. Even camping I like my comforts of home. you know lights, Ac's and indoor toliets.

I have never gotten to reading books on line yet. For me, reading a book on line is like working. The purpose of me reading a book it to switch off and relax and perhaps escape to another place. I can't do that whilst I'm connected to a keyboard and screen. Perhaps one day.

I hardly ever read online but I have done it. There is something about holding a book that makes me enjoy it more.
