Books Vs E-Readers

Didnt think anyone has started a thread about books yet so here it is. Which one are you more inclined to read from? a classic yet timeless book; or a new electronic reader?

Also state some of your favorite books of all time.

Mine are:
The Sun Also rises
Catch-22
Tree of Smoke
Farewell to arms
The Great Gatsby
Seven Pillars of Wisdom

I read both. The E-reader is nice for whenever I go to the ship or on deployment. Took mine a couple years ago and had enough books for the deployment without taking much space. It's also nice for travel as well. But, I don't like that I can't share my books or trade them in to (what's left of them) used bookstores.

There's nothing like a good old book. No electronic device will replace them for me, ever

lol KEEP IT REAL. Yeah I am going to invest in an ereader for the upcoming deployment. I want to keep up on my reading but don't want to lug a thousand books to the desert.

I was very against e-readers until I got a Kindle. I'll tell you this, it is a lot more comfortable holding a kindle than a 1200 page Stephen King novel. Plus, I can read at work on the computer and look like I'm busy, and then go home and it knows exactly where you left off. Very nice features indeed.
