I read both as well, but which really depends on where I am. The beauty of the Kindle is that it's a portable library, and, since mine is in a waterproof case, great for places like the beach or pool and for traveling. I also can read on any computer without having to transport Kindle or book. I read physical books mostly at home and I only buy those that I intend to keep. It saves so much space and money. I used to have shelves and closets and boxes of books that I would only read once and then they were glorified dust collectors. Now, the books I have at home are part of my library and are books that I cherish and will read again.
