How do you prefer to read, with an eReader like a Kindle or Nook, or with an old school paperback in hand?

Link to the challenge.

It surprises me a little bit that paperback is referred to as old school here; they’re not extinct… yet. Ever since I was very young, I have dreamed of having a library of my own in my house; basically a room dedicated to books. The feeling of being in a library, a book store or any other area dedicated to and filled with books is something I hardly believe an eReader can replace.

With that being said, I’m not against the eReader at all; it’s the more eco-friendly option and it takes much less space, which allows you to carry hundreds of books with you wherever you go. In a sense, that is any bookworm’s dream. I don’t have an eReader though, not being sure yet whether or not I should invest in one. And sure, I spend all this time behind screens anyway, but I can’t help but wonder if your eyes won’t tire out quicker while reading on an eReader? When I do eventually have the resources to get one, I will have to make a list of pros and cons.

As it is though, the eReader is nothing for me. It is a little bit weird considering I’m up to date with most of the technological development, but I guess when it comes to books I can’t help being a traditionalist.
