WHAT DO YOU PREFER,AS A READER?

Awhile back I had short discussion with an author about electronic devices that has taken over the book industry in record numbers.If you don't know by now what I'm refering to,I'm talking about the ebooks.They literally are taking  the places of books,well that's just my opinion.When I was talking with this particular author I said that I would never buy a ebook because I prefer to have the book in my hand,and besides if that author decided to do a book tour I would want there autograph.I was saying all this because I wasn't familar with ebooks,and I'm still not familar with them.But!This author said times are changing ,and some readers like ebooks over paperbacks.This isn't the authors exact quote ,but something similar to it . As a reader  I'm going to stick with buying books over ebooks I said.Well since I had that discussion with that author I kind of understand  what the author meant by saying times are changing.I guess so with ebooks on the rise....

So I pose this question to you as the reader of books,which do you prefer?

The Kindle.....
                                                       
The Nook.......

             





The Ereader....

                                                                                                                    


and now you can even downlaod ebooks to your cell phone.....
{These are Just some of the devices,I chose to display}

With all these electronic devices out ,there shouldn't be a reason why a lot of people  choose not to read.But! I can understand some of the reasons as far as the ebooks are concern,they simple can't afford the device.So they stick with reading a book.....

I'll repeat a part of the discussion that I had with that author.....as long as there reading I don't care what form of reading they choose.Again this is not the exact statement from the author.

So,for right I choose the paperback......

                      











It might change  a long down line,who knows....


I ask this earlier what DO you prefer as the reader,books or ebooks?There isn't a wrong or right answer I like to know you opinion.......
