I personally prefer an actual book than that of an e-book. To be able to hold the book, smell the pages, the feeling of actually turning a page I enjoy more than just the click on my phone. Also, the screen on my phone is small so I have to squint quite a bit and at nights when I'm using my phone to read the bright backlight keeps me from falling asleep as opposed to just being a traditional book where it would actually put me to sleep. Also in reading e-books on my phone I find that my battery tends to run low. However, due to my job and the constant need of traveling I am unable to bring my large amount of books with me. In those cases I find that with ebooks I'm able to read on my phone anf find it is best for traveling. Able to bring multiple books with me and not have to worry about taking up too much luggage space.

That is one of the most noteable advantages of e-book apps, I also like the fact that I can read anytime and anywhere.

I like a physical copy of a book. There’s nothing better than the smell of a new book. Depending on what device you are using to read, it can be difficult to read. Also, if you are the type of person that reads during night, I feel like the brightness of the device would hurt your eyes. I think overall a physical copy would be better.

I have always preferred a physical copy of a book. However, some books can easily be found in e-book format.For that reason I think that I would invest in an e-book reader.
