eBooks vs. print books: which do you prefer?

Thank you, Elizabeth, for a great question :)

Without beating around the bush, paperbacks still win for me, both as a reader and a writer. There is nothing quite like the feel of holding a story you love, with the cover and everything.

However, I wouldn't be anywhere as an author if it weren't for eBooks. And my eReader also helps me incredibly with my editing and formatting. As a buyer, if I'm not sure about a story or new author, I'm generally (not always) paying less to try out a new one via eBook, so am more likely to try them out in the first place. Lastly, it's great to be able to go away for a few days and take my eReader, as opposed to three heavy books in my luggage (which is what I used to do).

BUT ... paperbacks still win. For some reason, the whole experience just seems more real and tangible if you're reading from a physical book. I actually hate to say that, because I am a huge fan of the eBook, but you just can't beat having a story you love in print.
