e-readers are good because
- they're easy to carry/store
- the books are cheaper
- buying books is easier
- you can search for words and look up ones you don't know

books are good because
- some people think they smell nice
- they're harder to break
- they hold sentimental value
- you can share them and sell them on

both are different experiences, each good in their own way
please stop arguing about which is better and enjoy your stories

Books do smell great

Right..."cheaper"... okay, I illegally download books

I love my kindle, zombie sony PRS 505 and normal books. The same way I can listen to music on an ipod and also enjoy music on actual speakers.

Its funny how people who don't like one thing try to always force their opinion on others.
#160 to #94 - theplogyr (02/13/2014) [-]
No, it's not the same. Hard cold facts dictate that ereaders are better than books. And guess what? People should move on. There's beauty in everything, it's not like life will become less valuable just because you don't clinge to the ****** smell of paper you smelled the first time when your deceased parent took you to a library, or some other **** . Besides, it's books we're talking about, it's what's written in them that counts.

Unless all you read is original manuscripts, please shut up about the "experience" of reading a paper book.
#219 to #160 - zoooeee (02/14/2014) [-]
i actually prefer e-readers my point is that no one gives a **** which you prefer just shut up and read your book

ass
#220 to #219 - theplogyr (02/14/2014) [-]
It's not about personal preference, you ******** , it's about which one is objectively better. You failed to bring any arguments in favor of classic books, because you are stupid, but even if you would've done that, I can still prove that objectively, ignoring the ******** factor of how your cock tickles at the sight of paper, e-books are better than books.
#221 to #220 - zoooeee (02/14/2014) [-]
literally just said i prefer e-books

i wasnt arguing for either side

my point was that no one cares which one you prefer

it doesnt matter how other people read just enjoy your own damn books
#222 to #221 - theplogyr (02/14/2014) [-]
Can't you read, peebrain? It's not about MY personal preference, it's about which is better. It matters what other people do, you sociopathic ******** . You think you're cool if you make these chill, generalizing ends of conversation like "it doesnt matter how other people read just enjoy your own damn books"? Enjoy my **** , retard. How about picking up a book on logic?

MFW The smell of new books.

Bit relevant but I built a new computer and my friend asked me what it smelt like.

Books also don't run on electricity. I like the feeling of not having to worry about charging something's battery these days.
#99 to #98 - zoooeee (02/13/2014) [-]
ok well you go read a book then and don't use e-readers

see its easy
#100 to #99 - fareastbrainseer (02/13/2014) [-]
It is. I had an earlier Kindle I used to use, and it was pretty cool, but in the end I like books for their simplicity.

What type of kindle do you have?
User avatar #155 to #151 - thefunnyside (02/13/2014) [-]
The newest, non-touch, black-and-white one. Why?
User avatar #156 to #155 - newforomador (02/13/2014) [-]
I've been wanting to get a kindle, and not having to charge it often is something I want. I hate the idea of having the battery die on something every couple of hours.
User avatar #178 to #156 - thefunnyside (02/13/2014) [-]
It's an amazing device. It's made on some "paperback" tech, so it emits no light (Eyes never hurt) and books are cheaper. Old Classics (ex. Moby Dick, Oliver Twist, Pride and Prejudice) are free. Get enough books and it pays itself off. Word of advice though, be careful not to squish it. It can take falls, though

OP here.

I personally prefer books when I decide to read a novel or engage myself with a topic which need some digging. I find it much eaiser to concentrate with a book. For quick-search and articles I prefer the digital solution. Different solutions for different tasks.
User avatar #139 to #134 - fgtometer (02/13/2014) [-]
I'm planning on buying an e-reader for science articles (have to read a lot of technical stuff). Any advice/recommendations?
#148 to #139 - John Cena (02/13/2014) [-]
depends, do you need a portable table or a tablet which you can pull out on a spot which you are staying?Also remember you most likely need a 3G connection or internet offer for this tablet, if you need a portable tablet get a nexus 7 but if you need a bit more stationary one get a ipad, preferrably an ipad 2 because its cheaper and its the same as the ipad 3 if you use it for reading or browsing the internet
User avatar #173 to #148 - fgtometer (02/13/2014) [-]
I need a portable PDF reader which is easy to read, not much more. Hence thinking one of the original Kindles are they're only €60 or so. Will only need to download/sync PDFs once in a while from dropbox so don't need internet. Would be nice to use TouchOsc app also but meh
#144 to #139 - vikdane (02/13/2014) [-]
Can't help you too much there, mate. I'm mostly into the humanistic field. BUT... as I say and that every tech nerd I've talked with says.. do not go under a 6 inch screen. I Prefer Apple tablets.. the iPad.. not because I'm a fanboy, it just works so damn well + all the apps you can install for free. For a non-apple product, I'm honestly not sure, sorry.
User avatar #170 to #144 - fgtometer (02/13/2014) [-]
I'm looking at Kindles because of the readable screen. I don't really need a tablet/computer per se anyway, mostly just a portable PDF reader. Thanks anyways mate.

Popular opinion time:

I prefer books to tablets
User avatar #186 to #145 - byobgraffpro (02/13/2014) [-]
personally I think tablets are "revolutionary", making paper for books just seems wasteful. ofcourse you still have to use petroleum to make the kindles but its a lot less. The only problem I have with them is reading on them hurts my eyes after a while, depending on the model.
#167 - hellsjester (02/13/2014) [-]
see i love technology and the kindle is a great idea..... but unfortunately i wont buy one. unless of course they include a new book smell with every digital download. smellovision if you will.
so ******* good

no... no you aren't. as a matter of fact i seal my books in plastic bags so i get one huge wiff of it every time i open the bag its so ******* amazing.... they need to make a car freshener smell new book.

hue... I would agree however I intend on using and abusing my books for a few decades thank you very much.
Also... Paperbacks tend to be more compact for some reason so they usually aren't as easy to keep open at a particular page comfortably imo.
User avatar #224 to #168 - catburglarpenis ONLINE (02/14/2014) [-]
I read a lot on my stationary bike- so I like to e-read, because it's easier to do so and zoom in on the text and stuff while I'm bouncing around. Plus I used to read while walking around a track at night. E-readers come with their own light (and possible eye strain).

Just my preference.
User avatar #177 to #168 - vatra (02/13/2014) [-]
That's due to how the spine is on a hardcover. When you open a hardcover the spine arcs in slightly, making staying on certain spot easier. For paperbacks, the spines are kind of rigid and when they do bend it usually creases the paper on the spine so they'll stay open but only slightly because it is constantly little creases not one arc.

Anyone who insists Books are better than E-Readers on the basis that they're not elctronic has obviously never used an e-Reader.
User avatar #17 - fogschmog (02/13/2014) [-]
While I get that books are nice and all and some people get a hard on over them, this is ******* retarded.

Shutting off the reader? ARE YOU ******* KIDDING ME? That's just like, um, I don't know, closing the book, since you can open it any ******* time you feel like it, just as you can power it up again.

Oh and you better remember which page you were on the book, or you are ****** .
For the reader though, it comes back on and is on the friggin right page for however many books youa re reading at the moment.

Did he burn it or turn it off?
#49 to #45 - bellbottomshark (02/13/2014) [-]
Turning an e-reader off is like closing a book. Burning a book is like burning an e-reader.
User avatar #72 to #49 - fogschmog (02/13/2014) [-]
Ya, so is burning a ship, or oh I don't know, burning whatever.....

I don't really see your point here though. Nothing gets burned in the comic and even if it did, it still wouldn't show that books are better, which the comic obviously tries, even though he fails miserably.

Ya, forgot about bookmarks, point still stands, the comic is retarded, plus, e-reader autobookmarks.

User avatar #147 - gigglesthegreat (02/13/2014) [-]
In response to more uppity reader vs. books comments: Who gives a holy **** how someone reads a book? Is there really ever a, for instance, harry potter discussion in which someone says, "yeah, you read all the books, but you used an e-reader, so it doesn't really count." ? Why don't we just all celebrate the fact that people are still reading rather than being all ****** about how it's done?
User avatar #88 - MrJakkadakka (02/13/2014) [-]
I like books... I like the feel of turning a page and the satisfaction of closing it when you're finished. However, I bought a kindle and I really like that too... It's just rather convenient having more than one book saved onto something smaller than a book.

I still prefer reading things on paper compared to a screen for some reason.
User avatar #86 to #61 - maldel (02/13/2014) [-]
Also, it's less tiring for the sight (having a proper light source)
User avatar #104 to #86 - emiyashirou (02/13/2014) [-]
Because we all know that e-ink which doesn't emit any light and doesn't reflect sunlight as strongly as paper is terrible for your eyes.
User avatar #111 to #104 - maldel (02/13/2014) [-]
That depends of the paper and the light source, as I said. But it's true that looking at a screen make you blink much less and long hours without taking breaks is unhealthy for your eyes.

I prefer Books for stories.
I prefer Tablets for information.
Meaning, if I want to learn about birds; I google it.
I would never go buy/go get a book about birds because my slight interest is not worth the time or money.

I like using my iPad for textbooks and such because it's lighter, but I'll never get an e-novel.    
I like having bookshelves filled with stories and the way pages feel and how new books smell. Besides, if I leave my book on a table and go to a vending machine, the book will still be there when I come back.

#127 - saltyfries ONLINE (02/13/2014) [-]
pardon my idiocy here, but it seems like the more advanced technology gets, the more problems it brings, sure it has its advantages, but more often than not it brings nothing but frustration. For examples
back in the 1990's, we had the SNES and N64 (and other consoles), they instantly loaded VIDEO GAMES and the only problems we had was either trying to get the thing to work or the fear of data corruption. Nowadays, consoles can play anything, which seems redundant because there's machines that can play anything else, not to mention the failure rate has drastically gone up for a lot of these consoles recently. It takes time now for them to load video games as well takes time to even boot up as opposed to the instant start up of the SNES.
Imo the only technological advances that has truly improved our lives (despite having its own problems) is the computer itself, allowing us to communicate around the world, search for info, doing all sorts of **** , and aside from the programs like Windows, Mac, and Linux, not much has changed as to how a PC is made, sure there's more bites and **** but my laptop now looks like my last one.

Hurr "old" things are so much better. People who use technology to make their lives easier are so stoopid hurrr. I'm so cultured because I have books, they make me feel better about myself and they validated my sense of superiority.

So can I. I can also get almost any book for free on the Book Netflix (A.K.A library) but you just can't beat the feeling of reading a real printed book, I buy lots. Many a time my wife has said in exasperation: "It's 			*******		 4 in the morning, GO TO BED!" To which I answer calmly: I can't. The book is just too good, can't sleep even if I put it away.   
   
It's kinda like that. I have a nice home theatre with 130" screen, 5 game consoles, high end stereo, gaming PC and hundreds of movies and CDs... But there is something REAL about a good book.

Of course, that's true. But if I want to read a book that I don't have, instead of waiting to buy it, I put it on my tablet. Hell, I even read on my phone, if I want to have access to a book wherever I am.

Right now I'm reading Inferno by Dan Brown.
