Real book, you can pass it down to future generations or share it with friends/family now.  Can't do that with a Kindle.

We have a couple of hundred books in our Kindle library...  I'm told that I can loan any of these to other people with a Kindle account,   Last time I checked there were hundreds of thousands of books you can download for free.....   I've never had anyone send me a free book unless I had bought something else they were selling

 

We are on a two week fishing trip and I am far away from any book store and I just purchased and downloaded into my celll phone a new short story from Koontz.   That's impossible to do with a book.....   and to boot it was only 99cents.

 

I'm just a kindle kind of guy......    actually I read my Samsung phone more than my kindle..   it's easier to carry around.   If you come by and see me looking at my phone for any length of time, I'm most likely either reading a book, or worthy.

a regular kindle is not hard on your eyes like an Ipad.   It's not color, but doesn't give you that wavy sight like flat screens .

Both...I love to read and use my Kindle Fire and my kindle keyboard and books as well.  What I cannot find one place I will find another.  Both are a blessing.  The kindle because I have vision issues and font can be enlarged as much as I need at the moment.

That depends on the book!

 

 

I like both and the Kindle is very clever, but I do prefer real books.  As other people have already mentioned, books do take up a lot of space and not always easy to carry around, and it is wonderful to have the ability to store so many books on a small device - not to mention all the free books! -  so I do like my Kindle.  That said, though I tell myself I won't, I do find myself buying more books whenever I see some that look interesting in charity shops.  It is rare that I use my Kindle as I currently have plenty of real books that I need to get through, either given to me as birthday or Christmas presents, or that I have picked up cheaply in a charity shop.

 

However they are read, I think the important thing is that people are reading.  I can't imagine being one of those people that doesn't like to do so.
