Hey thanks Tara !!!! I have read about 20 ebooks so far and though I love the physical feel of a book, I dont mind ebooks too. I will sure do some serious downloading !!!. And I still haven't gotten around to do the reading speed thing.:(

spending money on books... not for me... !!! bye bye... !!

How much ever I try, I just cannot do online reading! Either my eyes start to hurt or my head or my back....plus not having the option to read it anywhere, that sucks!

So I'm gonna have to pass this one! ;)

*like it matters*

Somehow I don't enjoy reading on screen. A friend also showed me an e-book reader but even that didn't satisfy like the real thing.

4 ppl found the link for free download of ebooks good for them and 4 of you prefer to read the book holding it in hand, feeling its cover n turning the pages..

n our one n only Dhiren bhai skips part of the post conveniently to conclude that he would never spend on books ;)

so there is a tie..

speaking of myself, physical books put me to sleep :P whereas I can do online reading for the whole day also..

Just call me 'A' said...

oh wow...i'm checking out those links right away. thanks for sharing Tara.
I can do both, read online as well as a physical book. I prefer the physical feel of a book but I don't dislike reading online either. both ways work for me.
