Hi Guys,

Just have a question. How do you guys prefer to read books (hard copy/soft copy)? In case of soft copy are you downloading it for free from some websites or buying ebooks ?

@Mahendra, I prefer print books over ebooks. I am in Chennai and I don't have a library, near to me, that lends Telugu books. Also, I am building my personal library. So, I order print books and get them delivered.

What device do you use to read the e-books? And where do you buy the e-books?

I know. Tough to get Telugu books in other states. The last time I bought a set of Telugu books offline was from Book festival in Vijayawada, two years ago. My only source is web stores.

and when it comes to telugu books-hardcopies.... my wife's paternal grandfather was a telugu professor and the collection of books is mind blowing.. my in-laws have a huge library ( around 1000 books) and i am going to inherit that property :D

1000 books! Lucky you:)

I am the only person in the family who reads.

Uday Kanth (udayk) | 42 comments @Priya since you said you're in Chennai, have you been to the Anna Centenary Library? They don't issue books but have got a huge collection of books, even in Telugu.

I haven't been there, but heard of it's immense collection. At the moment I don't have enough time to sit in a library and read. So, I prefer lending libraries.
