    I strongly dislike them. They make it so much harder to skip ahead.

    Yaaaas! I also can't read an ebook for hours on end like I can an actual book, because I just can't concentrate for that long, or I get paranoid about damaging my eyes.

    I like to be able to hold the book and see how much I've read compared to how many pages there are. Also, it renders cute bookmarks useless!

    One good thing about ebooks is that while I'm reading and getting a little bored, I don't skip to the next page and glance over what's written there.

    I used to hate them too until I was abroad and couldn't carry or bring a bookshelf. E-books are just more convenient.

    Tried to read some free downloads I got from Apple a year or two back and just didn't like the feel at all (also didn't enjoy the book either haha )

    I really like book design and funds aren't much of an issue so I'm happy to purchase physical copies - if it's contemporary lit I also somehow just feel like I'm supporting the author more with a physical purchase.
