I always get the ebook where I can. But people keep giving me paper books. :-)

Currently, I am only reading ebooks. I do have some paper books that I plan to read. They are mostly not available in eformat. I don't know when I will get to them.

I haven't read a DTB since I got my e-reader in 2010. The only exception is some graphic novels which aren't available electronically so I don't count those.

Why wouldn't you count them? That sort of makes your answer a bit disingenuous doesn't it?

Too much stuff I want to read isn't available in e-book and most e-books are more expensive than the paper copies to buy for me. Until what I want to read is cost-effective and more encompassing of what I want to read, my e-reader will continue to be a novelty.

The problem witht he poll is that it's missing answer we should have.

I would vote I read mostly eBooks it's not even or.

I am first and foremost, a reader. So while I usually prefer ebooks, for convenience reasons, I have absolutely no issues switching between physical books and ebooks in my reading pursuits. I'm certainly not going to deprive myself of reading something I really want to read by zealously adhering to some random, self-imposed media restriction.
^What he said. I'm all about the story and I'll take it however I can get it - ebook, print, audio, etc, etc.

I do read mostly eBooks. The poll doesn't take into account that some of us read mostly eBooks. The option makes it sound like a 50/50 split when that's wrong in my case.

Eh, I guess? I meant it more that if I COULD read them in ebook they wouldn't exist in my house in paper form, but since that's not an option, I don't really count them. Stop grilling me :b!

I don't really count graphic novels as books, myself, no more than I'd count magazines. They just feel like something different - half way between a book and a movie, say.

For books pretty much 100%.

For magazines, I have not made the switch. I find I do not like magazines too much on my e-readers, with the exception of Readers Digest.

If I can get it in paper for cheap or free, I'll read it in paper.
