    How do you enjoy reading?

    I know we have several people on here who enjoy reading quite a bit. But, I'm curious as to the favorite format for each of you, as to how the material is delivered. I'm defintely old school...it's got to be a hardback. Love the feel of it in my hands, and everything about it. Absolutely hate paperbacks. My wife has gone the electronic route, first with the tablet/Kindle, and now with her phone. I can tolerate the tablet somewhat, but the whole phone experience makes me feel like I'm skimming over some Cliff's Notes for a high school English exam...constantly turning the page...don't like it at all.

    What's your preference?

    No real preference. I have a nook, enjoy reading on that. I have some hardbacks, and some paperbacks.

    Well, actually I ENJOY reading sprawled out naked as a jaybird on my bed. Not sure anyone else enjoys me reading that way.

    As far as the format...would prefer hardback but dang if I want to pay that much for a book knowing I can get it cheaper on paperback. I actually have a couple of coaching books, one by John Wooten, one by Tony Dungy that I need to start reading.

    HAS to be a physical book. Doesn't matter if its HB or PB. Tried daughter's reader (Nook) and couldn't stand it. My phone is a five dollar throwaway, so that's not an option.

    I chose other because I love to read. I'll read anything, including the backs of boxes. But my absolute favorite are hard backs and paper packs. The feel and weight of the book, the smell of the pages, the action of turning the pages....reading a real bool is a far superior experience than any other way of reading.

    I've always preferred having a physical book, but reading on the Kindle has grown on me quite a bit.
