What is your preferred medium for reading?

Re: What is your preferred medium for reading?

  • <3 My Nook! I love that I can borrow the books from the library for free and I don't have to worry about returning them (or what homeless person used it as a pillow for how long) and I don't like to hold those big heavy books anymore. So much easier with a Nook!

  • Definitely my Kindle.  And like a bunch of other people mentioned, I never thought I'd say this!  Having a Kindle actually makes me read so much more.

    I don't honestly care.  I will read Kindle, hardcover, paperback, listen to audiobook.  Whatever ... I'm not fussy and will use whatever I can to feed my reading addiction.

    This pretty much exactly. There are some titles that I'd rather have on the kindle- like a bunch of my YA and chick lit- that I like but don't necessarily want taking up space on my bookshelf. I'm finding that since I've gotten my kindle and have really been using the library more I'm letting myself be more choosey about what books I actually buy. Now when I but it's mostly hardcover because it feels special, or somehow more indulgent to have the hardcover. Plus they look great on the bookshelves.

    As with most things, I totally agree with Rev on this one.

  • I prefer to own hardcovers, but they are my least favorite to actually read simply because I do a lot of reading in bed and they are heavy and cumbersome.  I'm most comfortable reading a mass market paperback or on my Kindle.

  • I prefer hardcovers best, but I don't mind paperbacks or my kindle.  I don't do audio books.  Not sure why, just not the same as actually holding a book and reading.

  • Nook Touch first, library hardcover with a Kapco'd dust jacket second (there is something so right about how they feel), mass market paperback, trade paperback, other hardcover, audiobook, Nook iPad app, computer. In that order. Wink

    Unless the book is gigantic. Then I prefer to read it any way but hardcover for portability reasons.

  • I prefer real books, be they hardcover or paperback.  I think paperbacks have the slight edge, but I'm not super picky about them.

    I have a kindle and pretty much only use it for free books.  While I think it will be amazing to have the next time I go away and I enjoy how light it is, there is really nothing better than a paper book.  I was reading a book on my kindle a few weeks ago and wanted to bang my head against the wall.  You know those times when something happens in a book and you want to double check something that happened earlier.  Well, with a real book you can feel for the area where what you're looking for is.  With a kindle oouf.  Not nearly as quick and easy

  • Kindle but I like trade paperbacks just as much.  Really though I'll take any type of book or cd the library will give me.

  • Hardcover and Trade Paperbacks. I only like MM paperbacks if the books aren't too thick. 

    I have not jumped aboard the e-reader train quite yet but I do find myself waffling further and further in that direction.
