    Books. I buy whichever is cheaper, hardback or paperback. You'd be surprised how often the hardback is cheaper if it isn't a brand new release.

    I don't have an Ipad or Kindle yet. If I bought one, I'd have to buy four because my whole family reads the same books sometimes. 2 grand will buy a lot of real books.

    Yeah and my house is beginning to look like a hoarder lives here with all of the books. I'll probably try it one of these days.

    There's a library around here that sells what look like brand new hardcover books (probably only read once) for $1.00. I've bought lots.

    I get 'em for my iPad as well along with my magazine subscriptions. It's convenient to have a vast selection of reading material handy since I never know what I'll be in the mood for when I need it.

    I'm with you here. I have lots of books on my iPad as well as the Zite app for cool magazine articles. I subscribe (for free) to Handy Man, etc. online magazines separately. The only paper magazine I get is Vogue, a gift from my boyfriend.

    Hey fucker, I have an iPad, and as soon as they let people pre-order, I'm getting the next one. I don't read much though.

    I actually have 2. One for work only, and one for just general web surfing. Have a hard time using my laptop now. Matter of fact, I hate using it.

    Text. Hardcover or paperback doesn't matter. They still cost $100 to $200 each. I don't like my kindle fire for reading. The diagrams and illustrations are low quality. They aren't scalable so when you zoom in to check on a detail of a chart or a graph it is just pixelated with no greater detail. They need to do something about that.

    Same here. I got my wife the 3G Kindle and she slowly started bringing books she already read to the library. It's much neater at home now. Also, she brought it with us on a trip and I thought it was pretty cool that for fifty cents or whatever it was, I could buy a British newspaper and read about a day in the news of those people.
