Booking Through E-volution

btt button

E-readers like the Kindle and iPad are sweeping the nation … do you have one? Do you like it? Do you find it changes your reading/buying habits? If you don’t have one, do you plan to?

Six months ago, I would have answered, give me print novels any day. However, I have been reading a lot of e-books on my laptop via Kindle on PC. I work on my computer and read in the midst. I am liking it too. I can't read serious books. Cozy Mysteries and Romance novels work just fine. But I need to hold the crime fiction novels in order to be able to read those. No, I am not planning on getting one in near future.

I have not yet tried an e-reader. I've also never read a whole book on my computer but I have sometimes looked up free e-texts of older literature.

See... when I was reading on my laptop, I never thought I'd switch to e. But having a reader makes all the difference in the world.

My BTT is here.

I like reading on my Kindle, but only fiction. I have a kindle app on my computer, but never use it as reading on my actual Kindle is a lot more comfortable and convenient.

I don't have one - yet!

Here’s my Booking Through Thursday post. :)

I like to sit on the sofa with the eReader, but I can see how reading books on the computer would be a welcome break in the work week.

I never would have bought one, but got one as a gift, and love it ...

I thought I would love e-readers, but I just don't. I've got tons of books on my Kindle and iPad and find I never reach for either one.

I don't own one and am not ready to get one yet - but I'm not against getting one yet either. Heck - I'm still just getting into audiobooks, which I love for my long commute.

I got my Kindle as a gift...otherwise, I probably still wouldn't have one.

Cozy curling up to read works best with physical books, but here's MY BTT POST and

I love audio books if I'm driving alone...and the Nook for traveling so I always have a great selection of reading material! Here's my BTT.

I still prefer the actual book.
