Do you use an ebook reader?
I've been thinking of getting a kindle lately, and was wondering what people's experiences with them have been?
I use the Kindle app on my iPad. My daughter has the first generation Kindle and loves it. My other daughter has an original Nook and really likes it - so I guess I am not much help!
I have two Kindles. A Kindle DX and a small Kindle Touch.
Being blind I love the text to speech feature on both theese systtems.
Now there are many books which are published that allow me to listen to books on my kindles and as I have Amazon Prime I can also borrow manty books for the price of the subscription.
I woulld say that thee Kindle family of readers is an excellent choice.
I got a kindle last Christmas and so far I haven't really used it much. I like being able to download public domain books for free, and I like trying samples, but so far I haven't purchased any new books on it. When I think of a book I want, I go first to the physical copy (by instinct). Then, when I realize that I should get the ebook version, rather than the physical copy, I just don't get the book at all. So, it seems that I'd rather not own the book, rather than own the e-book version. Part of that is because I just haven't found a good book to read on the kindle. Once I get a real page turner, then I think it will help break me into the device. But until then, it's just going to sit on the shelf while I read physical books.
I got a nook color at the beginning of the year. I have two books loaded on it and I have not finished them but that's because of working and writing and family. I must say reading at night without the light is great. I loose my page a lot even with the book mark feature could be user error. I still love books, the smell the feel so it's a nice gadget but I’m not sold on it yet. Also it cut off last month and I thought it had died, but I guess it overheated and came back on a few days later. The other issues is Wi-Fi works and then at times it won’t I read a lot of complaints online so I think it’s a issue with the product. good luck

Is it advisable to have an ebook reader before writing an ebook? I've never used one, I'm not sure if that matters. Any advice would be great.

Can the Kindle be stopped? Are books slowy becoming dinosaurs?I've heard that some schools are abandoning books in favor of kindles. I'm not fearful of change or progress, I just do not want to lose real books.
