I had to be honest; I can't read. I try to get into books, but I am incapable of seeing one from cover to cover, even those that I consider to be interesting and well written. Due to such a reason, I have no meaningful attachment to books like some do, and thus I prefer digital copies, as they are less likely to become neglected, being accessible anywhere.

I wish I could read.

I've dabbled, but never really invested time into audio books. Come to think of it, that seems like a good idea to try, I have enjoyed some dramatic readings of short stories on Youtube in the past.

Just bought a copy of Beren And Luthien. You're darn right I'm getting a physical one over digital.

I love physical books, but I have run out of space for them.  So most of my purchases of late (save for a trip to Powell Books) has been the e-book variety.  The difference in price is worth it, too.

I want the physical copy, I love that new book smell and you can't show off digital books.

I like both actually. I prefer physical but on space, based on where at, cant always keep a book around; such as where i work.
Ebook however i can since its an app on my phone. ^^ ebook helps at night as well to not disturb fiance sleeping.

I have shelves tho where i keep the physical ones. :la:

I like physical copies of books when I read, and I like to have them as part of my book collection. Can't show off digital books.

I’m the same way. I actually have a library room in my house to show off my book collection.
