I was out in my pool this afternoon and looked up through the screen cage and I saw one of these sleeping in the tree.
I wondered how long it has been hanging out in my backyard..
I opened up my belated birthday gift today... a kindle! I'm excited to get it going this weekend.
I'm sure I will love it. It's so sleek and easy to hold.
I'm a huge book person, holding a book, but I think these are amazing what they can do.
You won't miss holding your book! I love the way an e-reader feels, and I love the adjustable font. Somehow, I think I can get more comfortable with my nook. I'm not always shifting to move the pages.
I can't believe how much more I'm reading with my nook!
I will be like a kid with the first book I download. I think it's crazy that you can click and there's a book! It almost seems like it may be quicker reading because you're only focusing on one page. sometimes when holding a book, I get distracted with the other page, or like you mentioned, holding the book, especially if it's bigger or a hardback.
I love my nook. I just love downloading books and having them right then and there! And the price! When you're reading a series, you never have to worry about the bookstore, being out of the next one!
Hmmm, or just BBQ that coon!!!!! Wrapped in bacon it is awesome!!!
no way, I'm wondering if it's a female, it looks rather big.
we're going to check tonight to see it it's still in the tree.
The kindle is great for reading in bed and I don't need my reading glasses. I will still be buying print books
I downloaded a couple of free books from Google and I'm really enjoying them. Both mysteries and one was by Steve Martini. I've only bought 3 so far.
You should get the Calibre software. It is great for adding things to your kindle and it converts most formats to Mobi which works well with kindle and it can even list everything on the kindle for you.
I moved just a month or so ago, and now live about three houses down from the local library. I just discovered "Playaways". Who needs Kindle? They're free! All I need is a library card, AAA battery, a set of earphones and I'm all set. Am now spending my dog-walking time listening to a James Patterson novel.

Do you prefer reading books in paper or e-reader form, like Kindle or Kobo, and why?

Don't you just love that we don't get commissions for Kindle book sales? I'd love to know what the excuse for that is. Every time I see one of those zero commission sales in my reports I want to scream. I never link to the Kindle versions of books. Buy paper!! Down with electronic reading devices!...

Although computers have opened up immediate, vast and rich worlds of information that I love, I still love to read books as well. These are friends that I can hold in my hand; I love the scent of books, and the turning of the soft pages. I also think that books may have other benefits...

Does a kindle replace a book? What do you prefer?

Just saying I'm back on the forum, I will be ignoring religion and politics for my own sanity

I got mine just over 2 weeks ago. 6 inch screen. Bought two ebooks thus far, and been perusing through sample chapters for quite a few others. Loving the free 3G wireless. When I'm out and about I can check on Facebook, Twitter and Gmail.Who else has one? What model/size?
