    Personal reading, my Nook Color. School books, physical books. Although I cannot deny that I do still buy real books from time to time. I have a stack of about 100+ real books to read.

    Library. Little money + little space + like of physical books.

    Also with a real book, you could be like reading it in public and a chick could be like "oh, can I see what you're reading." And then you can have sex with her.

    It doesn't work too well when you read books like this though...

    Edit: Shit, I just realized Amazon will remember forever that I clicked on the gay erotica link to grab that picture. My suggested products will be a lot sexier for a while...

    Kindle, get tons of free books from pixelofink.com. You have to sort through them but I've read some good new authors and book one of a series. Always find something to read.

    I like audio books (if it's a light read, because I can listen and drive or walk around at the same time), but usually actual books.

    I enjoy both holding an actual book, and the experience of going into a store or used book shop, and picking out something on a whim. Reading off a tablet is almost as gay as FF.

    Kindle. After reading on a Kindle its hard to go back to regular books. Which sucks because I still have a bunch of actual books I need to read.

    I like audio books, mainly because it's easier for me to focus on the material, my add makes it hard for me to focus on text I get distracted too easily.. Other than that I read books. I want a kindle though.

    Kindle has some new models coming out next month which look nice, but that also means there will probably be an increase of used current models being sold on Ebay and Craigslist for pretty cheap.

    I used to think I liked the feel of a book and browsing for books in a book store. Then I got a Kindle and was completely spoiled. So much easier to hold and Amazon has more than enough to browse. Fun to check out the free ones and if they don't suck you win. If they suck after a few chapters delete it and you lose nothing.
