    I read both ebooks and hard copies ...........
    :coffeeBut I like hard copies more because it gives the feeling of fully involved and also more comfortable.

    I like hard copy books compared to soft copy. Soft copy or e-book when u glare continuously affects your eyes.

    This could possibly mean a domain ban from the country.

    I am a big fan of hard copies but I am also liking e-books these days. I have a Kindle which really inspires me to read as its convenient, easy to handle, portable and the technology used is eye friendly and adjusts to surrounding light.

    But nothing beats the fun of paper books, the feel of paper, the smoothness and above all the distinct smell of paper from old and new books!!! Love it..lol

    The public libraries here in the US provide great & free access to both hard & soft copies of a huge collection of books. I am hoping the same will develop to a greater extent in India and encourage many more to read!

    Though public libraries are becoming a thing of the past, these days private libraries are picking up with good collection and fast circulation. On any day, I can't still seem to pick up an online book since I cannot vouch on what is written on paperback. Especially when picking up a book for my kid. Would like to go through the texture, feel, pictures and then go for it.. Guess, am quite bad for the environment :(

    E books , simply for the fact that it doesn't take any space and easy to carry around. My reading has been increased a lot after i bought kindle.
