    Raining outside, cup of tea, slice of fruit cake, open fire, nice comfy chair and a good honest paperback - preferably written by Patrick O-Brian. Life doesn't get much better.

    Combination of everything. When I travel, I use my e-book reader. Otherwise, about 80% of the books I read are paper, 20% e-book. And still buy a Sunday newspaper each week.

    A combination of the two.

    Re: e-readers, they're fast approaching outselling physical books in all formats, and in less than a decade. It won't be long before physical books are just a novelty or a statement of one's character. Also, the content is what's important. If pure aestheticism and 'fitting in' are important factors in your reading, you're a tool.

    I don't know why, but this suddenly reminded of the game of "Clue".

    With that said, captaincranky killed time, with a paper magazine, in the bathroom....:eek:
  5. I still read paper books. I buy most at the used book store for $1 - $3.
