E-readers?  Do you have one?  Do you love it?  Do you hate it?  Do you prefer the feel of a real book in your hands?

I have a kindle fire and I love it because there are so many free books I can get and I love to read. I do still prefer the feel of a ral book though ..especialy wheen I want to soak in the tub and relax. (Books will dry and still be readable if you drop them in the tub..I doubt an e-reader would LOL)

I would love to have an e-reader, but I don't feel like I read enough to justify getting one.  I've never had the opportunity to use one, though, and I'd really like to, just to see what it's like.

I have a Kindle Fire.  I thought I might read a lot on it.  I bought Hunger Games and downloaded it.  Have I read it - no.  Will I read it - maybe.  I still like the feel of a real book in my hands and I have a lot of books I can read.  It has proved quite useful for keeping the 5 year old occupied in the doctor's office waiting room though.

No I don't have one, I would like one though.  When I get to where I can afford one I'll get one.  Between having to carry extra O2 tanks, water, keys, wallet and other of my health needs a these are much easier to carry around than a books would be.

I was a die-hard, give me a real book kinda person.  I read A LOT and my favorite past time was heading to the bookstore, I could spend hours there. 

Then they started closing up the Borders stores around me and I had to travel further, so I wasn't going as often.  That's when DH surprised me with my Kindle and I do love it even though I swore up and down I never would.  

Every now and then I still order a REAL book, just because . . . but you absolutely cannot beat the convenience of the E-readers.

 I love our library and get my books there.

Closet Library here is about a half hour away, that's 1/4 an O2 tank...so besides the cost of gas to get there and back it would cost me an extra $10.00 O2 round trip.  The nearest bookstore (BAM) is about 5 minutes away and I can get coffee or tea and relax and enjoy.

I don't own one and I'm not sure if I'd like one or not.  I do like the feel of a book but then again not having used one - I guess I can't say one way or the other.  I utiize my neighborhood library for my books right now - like the fact I can reserve a book and renew online - plus I go past it to/from work so it's very convenient.
