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?
(First off, this title reminds me of the Eeveelutions from Pokémon. This is clearly important enough to share.)
I don’t have a Kindle or an iPad, but I do have a Kindle app for my iPhone. I’ve compared different digital readers before, and I’ve always liked Kindle’s design—it’s clean and unobtrusive, but there when you need it. As for my reading habits, it’s made older texts more accessible to me. At the moment, I’m just about to finish the first quarter of The Vicomte de Bragelonne, which is long. (I’m having visions of year-long readalongs of the d’Artagnan Romances). So it’s nice to have it on my phone to read while in line doing anything. It’s also nice to have two books on me at all times—the print book I’m reading and the digital book I’m reading. But I don’t think I’d go out of my way to purchase a Kindle; it’d just be one more thing in my bag, which already broke this week. (I fixed it. But still.)
