Real Books or eBooks? [Poll]

I stumbled across a statistic on Engadget that I actually found quite shocking: According to Pew Research, those who read eBooks read more books than those who read real paper books.

Shocking? I think so.

According to a new report titled “The Rise of E-Reading,” Pew determined that those who read on eReaders consume about 24 books a year, opposed to 15 of the paper variety. And the number of people reading eBooks is up to 21% from the previous year.

As a writer with 13 published novels, I have believed in the eBook trend since the beginning. Why stuff one novel in your purse or backpack when you can have 200 or so on your phone or tablet? Still, there’s something to be said for the smell and tactile pleasure of a real book.

We seem to be at a tipping point. Will eBooks continue to grow and change how we read, or are traditional, printed books in it for the long haul? I personally vote for eBooks, but would never truly want to give up real books.

What do you think? Do you like your books real or electronic?
