It’s been another exciting match here in our long-running Faceoff Series, where two competing services, apps, or devices are pitted against each other for a fight to the finish. In this edition, we pitted relative newcomer Apple iBooks up against its most significant rival, the Amazon Kindle, to see who would win over the hearts and minds of Mashable readers.

The results are now in, and it looks like Amazon might have something to worry about down in Cupertino. Apple iBooks bested the Amazon Kindle with 48% of the vote to the Kindle’s 36%. Still a close race overall, Apple’s victory is nevertheless even more impressive considering the relative recentness of its entry into the digital books arena.

Interestingly, the “Neither: I prefer my books in analog format, thanks” option in the poll received a respectable 11% of the total vote, showing that a good chunk of digital natives still prefer it old skool style when it comes to books.
