Agreed!

I have hardcovers of my favorites that I reread but I also have a Nook Touch that I love - especially when traveling! If I'm going to be primarily at home and I want the comfort of a repeat read, I go for a book.

I am an mp3 girl and I always have my iPod with me.

I'm all about portability. I love my e-reader and mp3 player. Tons of books and songs without having to lug around a lot of physical objects. I love physical books, but having an e-reader just makes more sense. I read too much to have to keep buying books. I'd have no place to put them.

I love real books, but I've run put of room. That was/is my biggest issue. I was having to trade some in to make room for others, so a nook was perfect for me. At last count, I have 7 90-qt. Rubbermaid containers full of books, and my fireplace shelves and 2 office bookshelves are full. But with the nook, I don't have to get rid of any to get more. . I have 811 books on my nook currently.

I still have my 1st edition nook, and I have NO desire to get rid of it. That 3G feature is priceless when on the road traveling or staying at places with no WI-FI (like my Grandma's house in Texas). But I also have the nook SimpleTouch with Glowlight. It. Is. Awesome. I love not having to deal with an add-on light, and I love that it's not actually back-lit like iPads and computers (which gives me horrid headaches).

I prefer reading a real book, however lately the Kindle-type reading has grown on me, and I think if I had one of my own I'd be able to enjoy it and get used to it (I borrowed my dads when I went away a few months ago and definitely enjoyed it on the airplane).

As far as music goes, I make my own mix CD's for my car, but otherwise listen to music through iPod or iPhone.

I LOVE my kindle - but real books are better. Kindle is awesome for on the train, or tube or plane though. Makes traveling so much more easier.
I also love the smell of books.

I prefer mp3s to CDs though. Much more convienent - I end up putting most of my music on an ipod anyways, so I usually use a CD once - to put it into my computer.

I'm old school and poor. Regular books for me. And CDs because I am a dinosaur and still burn mixed ones. I have an auxiliary port in my car but it doesn't work well.

I like real books. Sis and I are almost finished building a new bookcase for the living room. Whoo! Room for more books!

Still have my old vinyl records (LPs & 45s), and a CD collection, but I do like my iPod - mostly for the amount of songs I can put on it and that I can rearrange my playlists whenever I feel like it.
