I prefer books, but have read a number of electronic books.
When I first met my wife, she made fun of me because I only had three book cases. At her parents home, they have bookcases lining every wall of every room. No exaggeration. She thought I did not read much. But I had dozens of boxes of books stacked away here and there throughout my house. Plus, I get books from the library too.
The irony is that now she reads ONLY electronic books, Kindle, etc, and I have bought about ten more bookcases, still have dozens of boxes filled with books, and have a storeroom filled with shelves of boxed books, and she thinks I am ridiculous with hardcover books, the space they take up, the dirt that collects and needs cleaned periodically, etc. I love my books.
