E-book Readers

Post  Ashley on Sun Nov 08, 2009 11:32 am

I haven't had much of an interest in e-books or e-book readers until this weekend when I heard about Barnes & Noble's Nook. When I saw that the price was reasonable, I decided to pre-order one. This inspired a few questions for me to ask other readers.

What e-book readers are you interested in or which ones do you own? Have your reading habits changed as a result of e-book readers?

The Nook looks indeed great, I'm looking forward to reading more about it once it becomes actually available.

As for me, I am the proud owner of an Asus EEE PC that I bought with the sole purpose of reading e-books on it. So far so good. I love reading on it (and jotting down notes) Smile

I have a Kindle 2 and I adore it. Honestly, my reading habits have not changed that much. But I feel like I am so much more organized. I can put them on there, then I do not have to worry about where I last saw book x. Also Amazon sometimes offers really good titles (as well as classics) for free. Plus if it helps me sometimes with reviews since many publishers are moving towards the e-book/e-ARC idea.

I don't own an e-reader.
However - I did put a Kindle DX on lay-away for the Christmas season.
So I should have it within the next month or so.

Sony E-Reader

Post  Mrs Dall on Thu Nov 12, 2009 3:09 pm

I got the Sony E-Reader for Christmas last year (the old touch one that was just discontinued.) I went back and forth about getting one, thinking that they were kind of hokey. Plus, I love the feel and smell of real books. However, once I started using it I fell in love. I didn't buy another paper book for nine months. I read probably five times as many books now, mostly because it's so much easier to read when you can hold it in one hand and cook with the other. My only issue is that ebooks cost about the same as paper books and you can lose them so easily. The nook looks great, I'm thinking about getting one too.
