Today’s question:
What devices –if any– do you read books on? Do you find it enjoyable, or still somewhat bothersome? Or: If you only read the print books, why haven’t you chosen to read on any devices?
My answer:
I have 2 devices, a Kindle and a Sony EReader.   I find both to have pros and cons.  I like the Sony because of the touch screen but it doesn’t have an archive feature and “the Sony Store” sometimes doesn’t have all the books available and isn’t wi-fi.  The Kindle is easier to read on, but doesn’t have the touch screen, I can archive the books I have read and is wi-fi.  Both are easier to fit into a pocketbook than a print version.  But then I still need to be surrounded by my Print versions and need to use all the senses when reading a Print book.  I find I need to alternate between a digital read and a Print.

What about you?  Have you taken the plunge yet into the digital age of reading?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.

According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

  1. As you know, I just recently purchased the Nookcolor, and I am learning all the neat things about it. I especially like the fact that I can read my email from it, and other neat things. I like the fact that I can download free books, and I’m afraid I will want to purchase every book on my wishlist, which would than put me in the poor house, but it is so easy to just push a few buttons and in a few seconds you have your book. I know I will have to use a lot of self-control with this device…

  2. Don’t let that WP book to far out of your sight we may both need it!

  3. I love my eReaders for the convenience. But there is nothing that beats the printed page.

  4. I think you probably know my answer to the e-reader question (print books, baby!)…but if you want to take a peek at my full answer: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2012/01/musing-mondays.html

  5. Yeppers – I have a Nook Color – it has a touch screen AND I can archive books… and it’ll go online in any wifi zone… and I can tell it not to easily. I like the backlight adjustment ’cause I can read in the dark and I still don’t get headaches!! After reading some other reviews… I think I stumbled upon a winner.
