    The reading public is torn now. There is the undeniable convenience of e-books, downloaded at the click of a button; and you can load dozens of them onto one small lightweight device. But who can deny the pleasure of unplugging completely from technology and enjoying a print book at a cafe, at the beach or on a comfortable sofa? You can write in the margins, feel the crisp pages in your fingers and lend it out to friends so easily. So which is your preference? Are you an e-book fanatic or sticking with print? Or do you go both ways and like them both depending on the situation? Vote in our poll, explain more in the comments, and be sure to check out our week-long series Beyond the Book 2012 for in-depth coverage of the future of books and e-books.
