Physical Books v. eBooks

Do you prefer physical books or reading off your eReader? I have long preferred physical books, but after I studied abroad in college and took lots of books with me (and obviously came back with more), my parents graciously gave me a Nook for my birthday. For the first few years of having a Nook, I only used it for books that were ridiculously cheap, on sale, or even ones where I didn’t particularly care about having the book on my shelf. But even with a Nook, I still preferred to read from a physical book.

Fast forward to now, I am reading a lot more now, but my wallet can only afford so many physical books (#bookwormproblems). I use the library a lot to help curb my book-buying habit. But when I got an iPad a few years ago, I downloaded the Nook app, since at that point, my Nook device was on its last legs. Then I discovered how much more user-friendly the Kindle app is, so I downloaded that and have been using that mostly for ebooks. If I’m reading a series or romantic comedies, I almost always go for the ebooks because they’re usually cheaper. Also if it's slow at work, I can pull up my Kindle app and knock out a few pages then (shh, don’t tell anyone!). But at the end of the day, I would rather have a physical book in my hand.

What about you? Are you Team Physical Books or Team eReader?
