I have a Kindle. I also have a nook but it's older so DH got me the Kindle Fire not too long ago.

I don't have any complaints with it...it's a nice size, DH installed an android interface on it which i like cuz i have a Droid 4 so i'm familiar with it, and i like that i can get online or read and do all that stuff

Nope. I love my "old-fashioned" books.

I use the Kobo app on my tablet. I love it. Its easy to use and I can read in the dark. I also save loads of money on books and have access to a better range.

don't have one. I prefer real books too, and I don't think I'd use it enough to make it worth the money, I go in spurts when it comes to reading, I'll read like 7 books in a row and then decided I don't have that kind of time and not read for a few months.

I definitely prefer real books. You can get a lot of e-books fro free though, so I have a kindle app on my phone and also a desktop application. So far that has worked well enough so I don't feel like I really need a separate device.

My friend got me a used Kindle and we love it!

I enjoy "real" books too but just dont get to read like I used to either so the Kindle is easier than borrowing from the library.

Its convenient and I can get some really good books for free and not have to fret about taking them back or get fined LOL.

I use a Kindle Fire. I really love it. The neat thing is you can read in the dark with it.

I have a kindle - I love it! Its about a year and a half old so before the kindle fire. But it does all I need it to. I mix with buying 'real' books as well, but if its a large novel, I definitely prefer the kindle since I've been known to get lost in a book for 2 hours and have a sore wrist from holding the book up!

I have the original Kindle...and honestly i wouldn't want to upgrade it at all....i got it for reading books thats it...not all the other crazy stuff out there...its nice that i can take it outside and read and not have to worry about the wind flailing my pages around LOL...and that i can read it in full sun and there is no glare on it....and it has the look of a real book when reading it....not fancy schmancy like some of the readers out there....

I have a kindle touch (which is still e-ink, unlikes the fire) and I couldn't live without it! LOVE it. I read sooo much more now. It's also great for travel, don't have to pack books.. and never chance that you'll finish a book and not have a back up.

I don't have a kindle, but I do have an Ipad and love reading books that way.
