Physical! There's so much more to a book than just text, it's haptics, smell and weight, too.
I feel that reading on my kindle app is not as immersive - it's useful during vacation, though.
But whenever possible I prefer physical objects to data.

Same here. I get the practicality of digital books. Sure, it's easier - you can hold hundreds, nay thousands, many more on a device, but it's not the same when it's a physical book. I'm not sure how to explain it, it's just better.

Even looking at a screen that has been set up to mimic looking at paper you’re still looking at a lit screen.

Literally this. It's more difficult for me to get interested in a book if I'm reading it on a device. Here's me saying this when I don't read many books. Still better tho lmao

Recently, I've got around the Digital vs Physical problem by reading an ebook when I'm out and about, a physical book at home and an audio book at work. It sometimes takes a second to remember going on in each book, but so far its been working well.

For me, since I travel a lot during vacations, I do prefer digital just for the sake of convenience. I’m also a minimalist so it’s great to not have shelves of books! But, there’s just something about holding a physical book that always makes me read one of those every now and then.

Right now, I use a kindle, and I really like how it opens right up to the last book I was reading
