Personally I like to read everything on a printed book because it is easy on eyes and keep me stay longer on a book. But sometimes I like to read ebooks which help me copy or paste some important notes on it without writing on a paper like a printed book. I think ebooks are very popular nowadays on the internet but you can forget to read a printed book because they are more accessible from anywhere easily.

In your point of view, what do you prefer, an Ebook or A Printed Book? any comments?

I prefer the convenience of an ebook (actually Kindle). I can carry hundreds of books with me and read them at anytime. But, if I am relaxing in the recliner, a paper book is preferred.

I go back and forth, but usually read most material on my tablet, because I can put so many ebooks on it. Plus I watch alot of video's so it's useful for that as well.

The other thing, most of what I read can't be found as a printed book anyways. :)

I use to print out ebooks, but that seemed to be such a waste of paper. And now I have ton's of printed material sitting around. Most will probably end up getting trashed. Don't print them any more.

I am still a fan of the old school printed book. I buy lots of them on Amazon mostly.

I have never been a fan of ebooks. I have tried reading them on larger screen smart phones and I have tried reading them on tablets and on regular desktop computers. I don't like any of those formats at all.

I would still much rather have a book in my hands where I can manually turn a page and wedge in a bookmark wherever I stop. And I can take the book with me anywhere without worrying about battery life or finding a plug or whether it is too bright to see the screen. I don't have to worry about the book being stolen if I set it down and walk away. I don't worry about dropping the book and ruining it. I don't worry about losing the book. I don't worry about the book at all really. It just does what it always has done and I love it for that.

Give me a regular old fashioned book. I don't care if it is hardcover or paperback - love them both.

I only use ebooks recent years without reading any printed ebooks.

Ebooks that including video training are always my favorite ones I feel I learn faster when I reading an ebook, you can use PC or even a smartphone to store hundreds of ebooks without spending more real space, it is an advantages of an ebook over a printed book.

For my personally, I prefer ebooks because I can carry hundreds of ebooks on my smartphone and I can read them everywhere, everytime. The main convenience is that the searching function when I read the ebooks, that is I can search directly and jump to the topic or the subject I tend to find. It's very useful :)

I personally hate ebooks so bad that when I was in university I actually couldn't even study from them. I love traditional hard cover books and are willing to pay the extra money.

Actually I like printed books. But you know, I read ebooks in advance. Because they're more convenient. I am a young guy, and I have to move much. So ebooks is a plus. On the other side, I will read printed books in leisure time when I could lie in the bed :)
Last but not least, ebook is easier to share to others and much more cheaper than printed book.
