E-Reader devices versus Trade Books
I admit it. I’m not an e-reader user. I still read books traditionally; I enjoy reading late at night in bed when the house is quiet with an actual book in my hands. True, many of the books I read are in manuscript form, and yes, sometimes I read them downloaded from my computer but, when given the choice, I still prefer a hardback book.
If you subscribe to an e-reader device for reading pleasure, you may be passionate about which one you own. The digital era has changed the common question of, “What book are you reading?” to, “What is your favorite e-reader? How often have you been using it? And do you like it?” There are countless debates online regarding e-reader formats, as well as e-reader devices discussing which is best, quickest and easiest to read on; the new ad by Kindle fuels this debate, as well as adds the debate of price wars.
Maybe it’s time I consider purchasing an e-reader, or at least think about considering purchasing an e-reader! If you’re an e-reader, I’d like your input. Why do you use an e-reader device? What are the pros, what are the cons? Which device do you subscribe to and why? Maybe your feedback will help persuade me one way or the other.
