Do you prefer reading from an actual book, or from an e-reader like Kindle or Kobo?
I prefer reading paper book, I hate looking at computer screen 24/7
I like doing both, but with a Kindle it does get to my eyes. Then again I find that I read more when I use a kindle and not concentrate on how many pages the book is. I read The Stand by Stephen King on my Kindle and it took me no time at all. Plus it comes in handy at night when I want to read but my husband is trying to sleep.
Interesting that you're able to read more with a kindle, and yes it would come in handy because you don't need light to use a it. Side note: There's an old miniseries called "the stand" based off that novel. Thanks for commenting
I watched it a few times. For the time it takes me to read 30 pager in trad book, I can read about 50 on Kindle but gets to my eyes after a time
Wow that's a big difference, good to know, thank you!
Now cookbooks I prefer trad books. Sometimes with a reg book I am reading, I may see if I can find e-book online and read that in bed with the lights out. Currently listening to The Stand as audiobook for my commute
Huh, I figure cookbooks would be easier on a Kindle, but I guess if you're cooking n the kitchen it can get messy and you don't want to get your electronics dirty.
Lol! Honey why is there a piece of Kindle in my brownie? I had one cook-book on a diff tablet and was hard to navigate. But I have a journal app and that might make it better
Lol, well at least you found something that will hopefully work for you.
I have a Kindle Fire and reading outside there is too much glare. I guess the Kindles meant just for reading are anti-glare. So that is a disadvantage. It all depends how much I am in front of a computer researching and writing.
I prefer physical books. Less stress on the eyes, fewer potential distractions of email and the web when reading, no DRM issues.
I still prefer reading traditional books over digital books.
I like the actual book. I can flip through it, and see how much I have left to read. However, Kindle books are cheaper, and you can carry 30 or more books at one time.
I prefer my Kindle. You can adjust the light so that it is not bright or at all irritating to the eyes. That I know for sure, since I have sensitive eyes. Besides which, I do most of my reading in the evening, in my dimly lit bedroom.
Also, the Kindle is very compact and it is like having a Whole Library in one book. I can also pack the Kindle into a tout or even my purse, and off I go. It's handy to have if you've got to sit and wait somewhere, like airports. That being said, I still read books made from paper, but not nearly as much as I used to.
I prefer physical books. I like being able to see my progress by looking at my bookmark in the spine. I also feel like others are way less likely to bother me if I have a real book.
The kindle app on my iPhone is okay but it's not great. Maybe if I had a real e-reader I would like it more.
I prefer reading from physical books. It makes it easier to see how far into the book I am. I also find it easier on my eyes to read from paper than a screen.
From an actual book of course. I read some digital books but I didn't like them. Physical books are better.. I love to keep books in my library. And I like the idea that I always safe some money to buy new books !!

Is there one novel you've read more than once? What keeps bringing you back to it?
