    eBook, because it doesn't need more space to store as compare to hard copy.

    An e-book never gives me the feel that I get from an original book. The pleasure of reading somewhere diminishes when I have to read the e-version.

    though i'm online most of the day, when it comes to books, i love hard copy. nothing to substitute the feel of paper, turning back few pages to reread, a cup of tea in one hand & a book in the other, hmmm... lovely.

    For me its hardcopy any day. Picking up a book, relaxing on a chair with a cup of coffee relaxes you like none other. An ebook could never do that!
    I have tried ebooks in the past and it never struck the chord with me. Trying out audio books now..lets see how it goes!

    Agree with you totally, now-a-days i am also feeling my preference shifting to e-bboks, may be because of extensive travelling, it is sometimes difficult for me to keep all my books with me ( I some time read few books together simultaneously, of different zoner , ofcourse), and more over the storing safety is also taken care of. I find e-book more convenient,

    I prefer eBooks.. 1st thing is to save papers and next one is convenient.

    Hard book.. for many reasons.. not much impact to our eyes.. when you store at your shelf it impresses people who visit your home to read.. and creates a good impression on you.. you can share books and create friendships.. there is a great feel while you turn the next page with lots of enthu.. and so many...

    Hard book, no other choice. It brings more life to the reading experience. The touch, smell etc....It is just so wonderful to feel the book in your hand. Sometimes book become integral part of our memories...All those memories will be brought back when you just run your fingers through those pages....Reading hardbook creates a better bonding with the characters as well.....

    Hard book for sure. I love the feel of paper, smell of a new book and turning the pages. Reading an e-book seems to be too mechanical/robotic for me lol!!!!
