    No, except for kids books. I love reading on my kindle and not having to store heaps of books.

    I'm still a paper book lover and don't think I'll ever change. Absolutely love everything about having a proper book as appose to reading something on a gadget... Except for forums mind you lol

    Default Do you still buy books?

    Love books. But I don't have a kindle or iPad so have never bought an ebook.

    Off topics but can you read books on an iPhone?

    I love books. I don't have anything apart from real books to read.

    I love the smell, the collection and the feel of a real book!

    Absolutely! I look books, i love having an overflowing bookcase. E books just don't have the same appeal.

    I adore books and will not go to the ebook version. People always say that the kindles and ipads and what not are better for travel as you can have one small object with a ton of books on it compared to the weight of multiple books. I don't agree you can't use electronic equipment during take-off and landing of a flight.

    I love books, the smell, the feel. I still buy them tho I tend to trawl the op-shops, library and occasionally get something from the book dep.
    I have actually never read an e-book. I've tried a few audio books but it has to be a good narrator, which you have to pay for, which I am too tight to do atm!

    When i was a kid there was a story in a school book about the "future" where bookd didn't exist and everything was read on computers. OMG it seemed so far-fetched, most of us had never even seen a computer (lol how old do I sound, this was in a small country school in the '80s)

    I still buy books. I don't think reading off a computer screen even begins to compare to physically having a book in your hands.

    I adore books. I buy them constantly (have more coming in the mail any day now!) I hate clutter but book clutter is an exception for me... I want to be a writer so I love being surrounded by them.
