I have a preference for ebooks, purely because they are so much easier to carry around, take up a lot less space and easier to read in the dark. I still light up like a christmas tree however when I get a new physical book and bury my nose into it for that new book smell. If only ebooks came with scratch and sniff!
Reading a book is not an easy task in my house with my cats around, the second they see me pick up a physical copy of a book they plank their bahookies on the open pages infront of me and turn reading more into a game of wrestling the cat to turn the pages than an enjoyment. This is another plus to reading on my tablet, the cats don't find it as comfortable as a book to lay down on while I am trying to read but they have become very adept at wriggling inbetween myself and my tablet like little whiskered ninjas instead.
