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?
I do have an E-Reader. It’s a Sony one, nothing special, but I received it as a present from my mommy for Christmas 2 years ago.
I do like it. It’s easy to carry in my purse, I can have many books on hand at a time, and it makes for reading in the metro and train a whole lot easier.
My reading habits haven’t changed. I actually haven’t really been using my E-Reader a whole lot lately. I will probably use it more once school begins, but for now I’ve been reading good ol’ regular books. When I am using my E-Reader, while it is easier to carry along, I do miss “real” books. I miss holding them in my hands, turning the pages, and the smell of an old book. These things I do miss.
I do recommend that everyone buy an E-Reader for travel and convenience. However, for me, an E-Reader will never take the place of a favorite paperback or hardcover.
