So... almost weekly polls. Sorry, last week was kind of crazy for me with Halloween and whatnot. Anyways, this weeks poll is about something that's an interest of mine - the way in which people prefer to absorb literature. I love reading a good book, but I rarely have the time these days to stop what I'm doing and actually read. Plus I'm the kind of person who has to be doing at least two things at any one time. So I prefer audiobooks. My wife on the other hand is an old school book-reader and she is lightning fast at it too. I mean, I read fast, but she blazes past me by leaps and bounds. And of course there is the third option - people who love to read using e-readers. They argue it's convenient, light, and you can carry tons at once, but fans of the classic books say there's nothing quite like the tactile and olfactory pleasure a book gives.

So what do you think? What camp do you fall in?

I read neither of those. I have to read verdicts & notifications and other law stuff all day, so my appetite for books is 0 when I leave work.

I read A TON as a kid, mainly fantasy romans or star wars books.

I generally prefer physical books, but audiobooks are great for long trips!

During our honeymoon, my husband and I got a book that, by the time the 16 hour (round trip) drive was done (8 hours there, 8 hours back) plus listening to it any chance we got, we still weren't done with the book! Hell, I don't think we've had the chance to finish it and it's been 3 years o_O

The book itself is ~36 hours long. I have the physical book (plus the second in the series) and the books are 1100-1200 pages long. Great books, though.
