Would you prefer a Kindle or a good old book? I have noticed that the Kindle is a hot item these days. So, does that mean a majority of book readers are switching over from reading a book to reading a book on Kindle? I really love reading books, when I get a chance and can't imagine reading a book on Kindle. But I have to admit I like gadets and the latest technology:) What would you prefer??
I'll respond to this one, I did get an e-reader for Christmas but not a Kindle. I'm in love with it! However I still like holding an honest to goodness book, however I do teach a hymnology course and schlepping a bag full of hymnals and a text book is not the easiest thing in the world, not to mention now I can even put my lecture notes on the e-reader.
In short, the e-reader is fun and honestly I don't have a problem reading from it at all. It's also nice because I have really bad night vision, so I just boost up the text size and I don't have to wear my glasses.
Also I love the fact there are so many free e-books out there you can download to your reader from various blogs, and project gutenberg is a favorite website of mine as well. I've purchased maybe 3 books since I got mine and downloaded over 50 free ones.
Hope this helps!
I guess I'm still a traditional book fan for the most part. I finally gave in and entered the e-reader world last summer--but, there are times when I still just want a real, touchable book. My girls spend so much time with electronic devices already--I'm glad that they still like to curl up with a real "old fashioned" book and have storytime--although the convenience of an e-reader for my high school daughter's language arts class has been nice (no lost notes or sticky notes and bent pages---she's able to mark up her books without really marking them up!)
I guess I'm still in book transition--luckily I still have a choice of either format....for now!
Wel right now I'm going with a good old fashioned book for my reviews. Honestly though I would give a kindle
a try and test it out and just see if it's greater than the comfort of holding a book or not. I'd like to be
able to do that.
I like a good old fashioned book, but now that I have a Kindle, I realize the draw/advantages of having an ebook reader. It's nice to be able to take several books with me (on the Kindle) without having to lug around multiple books. Plus, I can put books on it for my daughter to read while we're out and about.
If I had to decide which to use, I would still pick a real book, but thankfully, there is a place for both. :)
I prefer my Kindle 1000 times over. Part of it is I have tendinitis in my wrists and holding a book for long starts to make my wrists ache. The other part is I can take 1000 books with me anywhere when I have my Kindle with me. My parents used to get so frustrated with me when we'd go on vacation. Limited space in the car and I would have to bring a bag full of books with me. With the Kindle I just have that slipped in my purse and I don't have to take up any precious cargo room.
The other thing I love is if I want to reread something, I just search for a phrase I remember on that page and go back and read it rather than flipping page after page trying to find what I wanted to read - comes in handy when I read too fast and miss something and chapters later am saying huh? LOL
I just asked a similar question, would purchase a Kindle Single, the new format that is out now? eBookNewser - http://tinyurl.com/39zcodw
