Hi guys!
As we all know, things like the Kindle and E-Reader are taking over
Almost every book is available in a e-book format
I also have books on my iPod
But, is it the same thing?
For me, its annoying to use a technology device to read
It hurts my eyes, and its not even fun.
The fun just lasts in holding a book, and flipping its pages.
What do you guys think?

I like the scent of the crisp pages of a book, I love the vintage fragrance of the old books I dust off every now and then, books in their indigenous form are preferable and nearly heaven to me. I read e-books as well, but then they've not got me essentially hooked ever, I tend to read em only if it's urgent.

I'm not a fan of these e-books. I haven't read books on a kindle or other e-readers but on my ipod I have and it's just not the same. The text is small and not to mention the glare. Plus you don't get the satisfaction of actually picking up the book and turning the pages. Not to mention books on the shelf look much nicer than just a little electronic gadget.

I agree..technology although great, I dont feel the same with it.  I downloaded a couple of reads but didn't enjoy them as much.  I guess I am not used to them or whatever.  But I still enjoy having my book collection and actually seeing them gives me a satisfaction that I've read all that I've bought and I can go back and get them anytime without worrying baout battery power or if my kindle breaks or whatever..

I actually have ibooks on my iphone, I dont particulary hate it...I like that I get to read a whole lot more books than I do with actual books. But I love the feeling of holding an actual book and reading and being so engrossed in it

with my iphone it seems like I am crazy that I stare at the screen for 20 minutes of so lol (my friend told me this)

I think ereaders like kindle, ibooks on ipads and nook are better than the iphone obviously. I actually might get a kindle soon so I hope it's better than reading on the iphone
