Had the second generation Kindle, and eventually gave it to a friend. Enjoyed it, but love my paper books more. :)

Nookcolors are awesome.

Unless it's a nonfiction book that I think I might want to make margin notes in, ALL of my books are electronic on my Kindle or iPad. I am inpatient for shipping and prefer immediate gratification. :-)

No, but I check them out from the library on my phone.

Swanson at the Kindle Store as I recall it says the prices are set by the publisher.

Why aren't ebooks substantially cheaper than printed books? It has to cost company's less.

11/22/11 6:58 am

Free ones!! I prefer real books to be honest.

I tried out the kindle for about a month. It was neat, convent, and I had choices. But the experience wasn't there.
I love books. I'm pushing the ninety mark soon and can not wait til I have a library like room. <3

11/21/11 11:35 pm

Yes. But I still prefer real books. Thrs nothing like smelling new books from a library. Haha (I actually hate that smell) 

Reading is the past. Audio books are better.

I'd rather read a hand held paper book. reading from a screen gives me a headache after a while.

11/21/11 10:39 pm

Just bought a Kindle Fire. And it's made reading much more enjoyable for me.

The overdrive app tho flawed helps cut my book costs down a lot

I love my kindle but I will never give up actual books. The feel, smell, sound of a book can never be replaced. I also think, if you're going to buy a hardcover, you should get the e-book free!

11/21/11 10:28 pm

I haven't bought any but I use audiobooks which are free so does that count? I wish I had more time to
Read tho

there is something about building a library, something you can leave your family.

11/21/11 9:55 pm

Krasnodar in my experience only pretty dated books are free. But I could be wrong, I'm usually looking at new releases.

11/21/11 9:55 pm

moo4200: for sure RIP Mr. Larsen!

11/21/11 9:53 pm

valeriejo: absolutely loved those books! Can't wait to see the movies, should be intense! just sorry the author died prematurely I'm sure there was a lot more great stuff in thar geniuses head!

11/21/11 9:51 pm

Jezebel & CAwench - I'm with you two - no more piles of books laying around, whoo hoo! And I also *adore* the dictionary, how great is that! Also, love my Kindle when traveling - no more lost space just for carting around extra books.

11/21/11 9:00 pm

What is the rationale behind buying an e-book, or really any book at all? There are free public libraries for a reason.

Wow jopat.. Something we can agree on! I love the girl with the dragon tattoo. All 3 of those books are awesome.

Jopat- love Steig Larson! I really enjoyed those three. Shame he passed before getting to see how big it's gotten rip

11/21/11 6:56 pm

downloaded some free ones but nothing new that I paid for

No. If I'm gonna spend 15$ for a book, I want it sent to me in paperback form too! That's a lot of $ for a digital copy, in my opinion. I do like a good old fashioned book :)

I love the the enhanced books an vooks. Just what the ipad was made for. Just need to get more tech books with these features.

Scarle - might as wonder why young people don't read books anymore. Now if you asked who had ever purchased an MP3...

11/21/11 6:38 pm

I really enjoy e-books, great way to get reading again! I've bought about 50 this year hope to keep it going forgot how much you gain by reading even if it's a murder mystery. Anyone else get into Stieglitz Larsens books, The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo?

11/21/11 6:34 pm

Why aren't the poll numbers higher for tech savvy young people? Curious.....

Bornofash: I'm just saying we need to kep an eye on these bad companies that will abuse and exploit the land and animals. look at Mickey d's and the chicken dilemma......

@gonk and yune800: I agree, the actual tangible book is way better than the electronic version. :)

Though, I must say, actual paper is still my favorite

I have the three incarnations of Nook and I LOVE them! I am a voracious reader and some books need to be experienced in paper, no doubt about it. But my entry into the e- book world allows me to travel with a bunch of great reads without breaking my back! Love it!

I've never bought one cause I only download the free ones

11/21/11 2:49 pm

Yes. And I also bought an audio book electronically, too. And I ordered a book from amazon electronically with a crappy phone in 1999. I'm all about the E, baby!

11/21/11 2:39 pm

I buy books in any form!

@jopat, no one is cutting down virgin forests for any kind of paper products, there are tree farms that are specifically grown for that purpose.
