With the holidays rolling around, eReaders are everywhere. As some of you know, I got my eReader last Christmas and, although I still buy “real” books, I love my Kindle. I mostly use it when I travel so I can have as many books as I want without the weight or loss of suitcase space. This also helps when I decide I don’t really like what I’m reading. Instead of being stuck lugging around a book that turned out to be a drag, I can just close the file and open a new one.
I also love my Kindle during moments of impatience, when I decide I have to have a book now. This is especially true of series. Example. Last week I read Kelley Armstrong’s The Summoning. I waited patiently for it to arrive in the library and then couldn’t put it down. When I finished it, I didn’t want to wait for book 2, The Awakening, to become available at the library and it was too late to go to the bookstore. So I bought it on my Kindle and devoured the book.
Anyway, I’m getting off track. With all the talk of eBook sales rising and eReaders taking the spotlight as the holiday must-have present, not to mention Amazon’s announcement just in time for the holiday season that You Can Now Gift Anyone with an Email Address a Kindle Book, I found myself growing a bit curious about eBook usage and eReaders of choice. I’m the only one of my coworkers with an eReader and I think the only one in my family. So now I want to know, what do my readers think about eBooks and eReaders?
