Booking Through Thursday





Today's question:
E-readers like the Kindle and iPad are sweeping the nation … do you have one? Do you like it? Do you find it changes your reading/buying habits? If you don’t have one, do you plan to?

My answer:
I have 2 EReaders, a Sony and a Kindle.  I originally wanted a Kindle, but when we found out I was having the double day spinal surgery, my husband surprised me with a Sony Ereader (he is a fan of Sony products).  Approximately a year later I purchased a Kindle too due to some of the features that the Sony didn't have but the Kindle did.  As far as the IPad, I think that will be my next big purchase, but because of the price, it will be a while before that happens.

When it comes to buying habits involving EBooks and Print, since I receive most of books for free because of requested reviews, I will answer this question as if I didn't.  Again due to the price of books, I would buy mainly in EBook editions as I find them much less expensive then print and I like the feature of having them in hand within seconds and without even having to leave the house.

What about you?  What gadgets doe you own?  Are you planning to ask Santa for one?

I do love the ease of downloading and having books in seconds.

The reading on the Kindle is not as comfortable for me...yet.

Hopefully, I'll find a way to deal....

I'm definitely asking Santa for one! Seeing as how Borders exists no more, there aren't any book stores in my town (no B&N either!) so I think an e-Reader would be a great investment!

I don't have an e-reader, but can see how great they would be if you travel a lot, or to take on vacations. I guess you could say I am still a page turner. However, if I ever buy one I suppose it would be a Nook, since I love B&Ns and shop there often. They definitely would have to teach me how to use it.

Love my Nook and find it VERY user-friendly. I still like reading "real" books too though, and haven't really changed my buying habits or reading habits too much. Here's my BTT.
