Put me down for preferring ebooks. Actually, I refuse to carry any books if I can find it digitally. Especially with newpapers and references. There is just so much you can have in your palm, why carry it other ways.

I guess I love ebooks and paper books the same! I just love to read!!! But I will say that it's so convenient being able to carry so many books on such a small device! That is soooooo much better than having to lug around a lot of heavy books in a book bag! And I love how you can turn the page so silently with an ebook and nobody will be bothered by the paper crackling and whispering. And we can read them in the dark and not disturb our loved ones! And our pages are automatically bookmarked without having to worry about a paper bookmark falling out and then having to find the page we were on! And like someone else mentioned, we can download them instantly and not to have to wait for them to be shipped! I still love the real, paper books though because I love the feel and the smell! And I love to see them all sitting on my many bookshelves! There's just something comforting about being able to see bookshelves full of books, knowing that you can pick one up and open it and enjoy it from front to back! Books are treasures to me; ebooks and paper form!!!!!! Happy reading everyone!!!
