I would always prefer Paperback ones:)

I don't read either. If I was to read a book it would have to be paper, as an ebook would seem foreign, too clinical and unease me, for me to be able to enjoy what I am reading.

Whist I like printed books, and still buy them, eBooks are very convenient both in obtaining new titles and taking zero shelf space 😉

Ebooks are good especially now that we have audio books too. However, I prefer to choose Paperback if I am going to read a book. This is purely because we spend far too much time on electronics these days that we need the occasional time out from them. Thus, picking up a good 'ol Paperback book always is a good way to get away from electronics and have some time out.

This said, I still prefer Ebooks mainly if I'm a passenger whilst traveling over a long distance as I get headaches trying to read a Paperback in a vehicle. Also, if I am sleeping or need something to listen to in the background, I love a good Audio book.

Overall, it depends on the situation for me. All three, Ebooks, Paperbacks and Audio Books all have there time and place. Paperbacks to get away from electronics, Ebooks when traveling as a passenger in a vehicle and Audio Books when about to sleep or as background noise.
