Do you have kindle or any other Electronic Book Reader?
If yes then do you enjoy reading on electronic paper or you prefer traditional reading on paper?
i just got my new Ipad and i think its not that good for reading books
I will always enjoy reading printed books, but I now have an iPad, and have really enjoyed using it as an e-reader. I've found so many free books to read, and I can easily carry a few dozen of them with me.
I LOVE my iPad for reading.
I used to really dislike electronic books. I still think the prices are outrageous, but I now prefer reading on the iPad.
I've had an Ebookwise 1150 for nearly forever, and still love it for what it can do, but my Kindle was a gift, and I absolutely love it. I still read books on paper, but it's hard to beat an ebook reader for the convenience. I literally have over 1000 free public domain books on mine. Never run out of something to read! For the current price of $139, I'd consider it a must have.
There is something that doesn't feel as genuine about an electronic book reader. I miss holding the book in my hands and turning the pages. I think they are handy - but for me - nothing beats a real book.
I got the latest generation Kindle 3 when it was released in the summer of 2010. I was worried that it was not going to perform very well but since so many people were saying good things about the Kindle I decided to take a risk.
It is much better than I thought. You have to remember that the Kindle is designed for just one thing, reading. It is light weight and portable and the screen is really easy on the eye. I could not really get my head around electronic paper/ink until my Kindle arrived. It really is just like paper, not bright like a computer screen.
There is still a place for "real" books in my life but for now I am enjoying using my Kindle. This is not because it is new or cool but because I can get free books for it. This is the best thing by far. There are just so many classics that I want to read and with the Kindle, I can get them for free.
If you enjoy reading, I am sure you will like the Kindle but if you don't read then it will just be a waste of money.
No i dont have Kindle but i think is really nice and properly for very busy people so they could read the book or study where ever they are.
I was absolutely devoted to bound books. We moved a lot when I was a child and I was always allowed to take my pets and my books with me. I still have many of my childhood books, they are very dear to me. Having said that...when I got my NOOK 3G I turned away from bound books and never looked back. While I will continue to cherish and protect my childhood collection of books, signed editions and hardcover favorites, I have not purchased a bound book in 18 months. I find it easier to read on my NOOK (all books are large print) and I'm able to take it with me everywhere. Love the convenience, the ability to have all of my books with me all of the time, and the fact that I'm saving trees.
I like reading my Kindle, and it has some very good points. For instance, when Amazon have sales of e-books at $1.00 a time, I load up my Kindle with 10. The Kindle is also the perfect way to carry books as you travel. Do I prefer real books? YES!
