Since I got my Ipad I have not purchased one paperback book. I love the convenience of just being able to download books and not have them sitting in a book shelf forever causing clutter until I can be bothered giving them to the library or vinnies.

I use the library and go to book swaps. I've never downloaded a book for pleasure, only e-books for uni research.
I spend a lot of my work planning in front of a screen, the last thing I want to do is have to carry a screen around to read.
Plus a e-reader can't double as a coaster, I can't leave it on the floor next to the couch, i can't fall asleep with it in my hands and let it drop to the floor, I can't fold it to fit in the glovebox. I can't leave it around my kids and I wouldn't feel safe reading it in the bathtub.

Do you still buy books?
My preference is for "real" books, my second preference is for audiobooks and my final and least favourite preference is for e-books. Unfortunately I read the majority of my books on my iPhone. I still buy paperbacks here and there but if there's a book in a series that's coming out, I've usually pre-ordered it on Amazon so it DLs as soon as it's available!

I love, love, love my e-reader. I've had it for a couple of years now and haven't bought a book since. I was a total bibliophile and had thousands of books but now just love the convenience of my e-reader. I have a Sony which is only for reading, not like an iPad / tablet etc which are backlit, so it's really easy on my eyes. Also, it's easy to hold, so when I was breast feeding I could read without waking up the baby. The cover has a built in light and I can put it in a waterproof cover so I can read in the pool, at the beach etc without worrying about ruining it. As you can see, I'm a total convert. I read about 5 books a week and still borrow 'real' books from the library but only if I can't get it in epub format.
