''Where and how do you read? Can you read anywhere and everywhere, or do you need a certain place/mood/state of mind to get reading? Do you read more in the morning or at night or any minute that you can? Where and how do you usually read? Are you exclusively for print, or do you go for ebooks more than print? Have you ever tried audiobooks?''
I respect all kinds of formats. But a traditional printed book will always remain a favorite, especially when it's fresh off the press. The smell of paper and ink provides an additional character to the book that makes it unique from the rest of the books in the shelf. I think that's a very good reason why book folks call it a classic format.
Never tried audiobooks but I recall listening to fantastic and scary stories recorded in cassette tapes (my father worked as a rural broadcaster and he used to have this collection of stories in tapes) ages ago. I think they are the same in essence.
