Pride and Prejudice
Paper. I like the weight and feel and smell of a real book. Black ink is blacker on paper than on a screen. Real books are tougher: they hold up well to abuse. And if they begin to show wear and tear, that only enhances the book's character, like the patina on a wooden table or the tea stains in my favorite mug. Plus, computers are my job... a paper book is relaxation and escape, whereas a screen just feels like work.
