eReaders

How do you read a novel?
I read an actual book.
However, all the bookcases in our house are full to the brim.  We do not have room for one more single book.
Earlier this week, I wanted to purchase Dan Brown's Inferno. 
What to do?
I purchased it via iTunes as an iBook.
And I'm pretty impressed at the technology that has enabled me to catch up with Professor Robert Langdon's latest adventure.
I can't imagine that reading via an eReader will ever surpass reading an actual book, for me at any rate, but I have peeked in to the dark side and survived.

How do you read these days?

No, I'm not ready to move over to the dark side just yet. I did try out my MIL's kindle, and I wanted to like it, but it wasn't for me. Never say never though..I like the back light!

I still love a paper novel. I read before I head to bed and reading off a screen keeps me awake! I like how easy it is to download a book though!

I've been on the dark side for a year and I love it :0)

It's not dark in eReaderland. I don't feel that I am constrained to just one medium for reading so I continue to use the library and to visit the free bookshop AND to visit the Official Bookcrossing Zone here in the city centre. I take a pile of registered books to the OBCZ and then feel justified in gathering up any that take my fancy. I have been a bookcrosser since 2004 and find releasing books very liberating

I love books but I also read them on my iPad these days, though it is mostly non- fiction. I love being able to have so many things wrapped up in a slim package! IsT is not really so dark over here, is it?!

I'm still with paper but have tried eReaders and don't mind them .. I dare say I'll end up doing a bit of both soon enough.

I love my kindle and would happily use it for all of my novel reading. I do still read paper books but now find them awkward to hold and get annoyed when the bookmark gets lost.

I have been reading most of my magazines via my phone recently and have just started reading books as well (the DR Who ebooks so I had no choice lol). I never thought I would take to it (after all, I resisted iTunes for years until I got a smart phone a couple of years ago!)but it's not too bad and it does mean I have more room in my handbag!!!!
I will never stop reading proper books or magazines though. I love turning the page and feel of the book in the hand. Ereading gives me easier access to the types of magazines/novels that I like so I will dabble in the dark side when required :-)

I never thought I would get used to reading on my iPad but I have to admit that most of my books are now downloaded. I find it so easy having everything in one place (ie. books, mail, browser, blogs etc.) The only thing I don't like is that you can't pass the book on to someone else. x

I too still like the feel off a book in my hand, but use my Kindle or IPad for listening to books (and sometimes for reading when I'm travelling
