2. Do you read more or less than when there were only the conventional paperback/hardback books available? 3. Do you read e-books/kindle, audio books or CD's. 4. Do you think reluctant readers are more likely to want to choose one of the new technology formats for books, or do you think it makes no difference. 5. Do you prefer to read traditional books or the new technology formats. 6. What for you are the advantages/disadvantages of the various formats now available. Many thanks

Hello Rob - I had no idea Kindle estimates reading speed! Many thanks for detailing your experience. I am sure the person who gave you the gift has taken great pleasure in knowing how it has positively impacted your reading habits.
I was genuinely sceptical myself as to whether or not i'd enjoy using an e-reader, didn't actually think i would but i'm delighted that it's come to pass. I've expressed my gratitude on a no. of occassions, 1 of the best gifts i've received in years.
Interesting you read the same amount - just different formats. I have not yet taken the plunge of reading an entire book electronically and have been a little concerned re possible eye strain. Many thanks for your thoughtful response.

Hi Pauline - It's encouraging you have made the best of both worlds and I note what you say about arthritis and not needing spectacles. Interesting also that you feel less "guilty" LOL! Your considered response is very much appreciated.
Hi Sheila - I appreciate your well considered response. You have the best of both worlds. E-books on the move/printed books otherwise. It's sad many miss out on multifarious benefits of reading. Might interactive reading books encourage some kids?
