Hi all.

I love reading but my busy schedule as a student leaves me little time for itOuch But, I spend a huge part of my free time reading books. Recently, I have developed a fetish for reading e-books(though physical form books are still betterLOL).
I have also started reading books by writers on online forums, most of which haven't been published. Do you read e-books or physical books? Books by well-known writers, or others too?
Books that are published or those that are available on sharing websites(by budding writers) too.
Please share.
We could end up suggesting each other different sourcesWink

Going off to readLOL

I prefer physical books. I hate reading online! I can't read anything online.. So I prefer going to the library or buying books myself and then reading them :). I can't even read journals and articles that we're made to read from uni online.. I have to print them of for something to go into my head and for me to actually read the whole thing! So yep, physical books :)

I don't mind unknown readers though.. I read the blurb, and sometimes the first few pages before I buy or borrow any book. As long as it sounds interesting.. I'll take it! But reading online is just something I cannot do.. I refusee too! lol.

Have fun reading! :)
I'll be doing that soon too! :P

Prefer actual books, but these days I find myself reading pdf versions of Urdu novels since I don't find those anywhere in the US :/

I never thought I'd prefer e-books to traditional books, but the more I use them, the more I like them. It's so easy and they keep improving the quality. I rather sit with an e-reader outside on a sunny day than a regular book. Less strain on my eyes :)

I actually love both, I think if you have a good e-reader then it won't be as straining to the eyes. I like e-readers because you can store 100s of books in one device and it's right there and it's easier to carry

But I do love to read paperback/hardback books as well

Thats just me two years back!LOL 
But, gradually, i just got comfortable with it. Though my preference still lies with physical books, the ease that e-books offer have lead to me reading them much more than paper/hardbacks
