Kind of both - it's great to have the classics on a bookshelf so I can look at them and remember them - but also to have them on a Kindle means I can have them either with me or on my Kindle PC which is on my lap top wherever I am. And also, I'll often when I'm writting thing of something from one of my favs, and with Kindle with me I can find it.
For the most part I want all my leisure reading books as e-books so I don't need bookshelves (or more than one small one) in my place since I live in a small condo.
The only thing I really prefer paper books for are my academic books for work as I need to flip through quickly and mark them up etc.--space isn't as much an issue here as I have plenty of bookshelves in my campus office. Aside from that, I just have a few favorites I don't want to waste money rebuying as ebooks. Only paper books for leisure reading I've bought since getting a Kindle is a hardcover illustrated set of Lord of the Rings.
