Do you prefer e-books or print books and why?

When I first started reviewing books on my blog I found it really really hard to read books on a device. I can say I was only a paperback type of girl. I don't really like hard covers, never did. There is just something about holding a new book or even a used book. I love going into used book stores and finding a book that you wouldn't find in the stores at the moment. I love the smell and feel of print books. One type of book that I still don't like as an e-book is cookbooks, they really should be in print either hard cover or paperback.

Now that I have had a Kobo and a Kindle both with lights I have to say I do love reading e-books also. I still LOVE paperback especially signed by the author. They can be nicely displayed on my book shelves (Just got a new shelf with 5 shelves!)

With the amount of books I read a year and the fact that a lot of them are by Indie Authors I do not mind e-books. They are easier to read in bed at night as I can turn out the light not to disturb my hubby (not that the light would bother him) and as I found out last summer having an e-reader with a light means I can actually read by the camp fire or in the tent at night. 

Which do you prefer?
