BTT #20

Note: scroll down for the ThursdayThirteen.


Booking Through Thursday

Paper or Plastic?
  1. Do you read e-books?
  2. If so, how? On your computer, or a PDA?
  3. Or are you a paper purist? Why?


  1. I've bought a couple, but I haven't actually read them yet.
  2. I don't have a PDA, so they're on the computer. I kept meaning to steal my daughter's PDA, but my husband nabbed it first, dammit. An e-book reader is going on my Christmas list. Anyone have any recommendations?
  3. I guess I'm a paper purist, but it's a practical thing, not a philosophical one. #2 is why I haven't read them yet. They're on the computer, and it's really a PIA to sit up at the computer to read, and uses up too much energy--see here or here for details. I'm doing great lately, but if I've got the energy to sit at the computer, I've got so much more stuff to do.

I don't have a PDA, so I read them from my laptop. I've only been into ebooks about a year, but I am HOOKED. As soon as you get down and read a really great ebook, you're going to forget ALL about where you are. At least that happened to me. Now I sometimes think I love ebooks even more than regular books!

I do hope you find a comfy position and a great book so you'll become just as addicted as we are. LOL!
 
Interesting post. I have my first book coming out in digital release this Sept. I only started checking out ebooks this year and have only read a few. I don't have a PDA. I read them on my laptop. It was difficult first but I did get used to it and got into the story.

Maybe it's different if you have a reader or something portable. There's something limiting about the computer in that you can only read the book when your in front of the screen. (I've been known to have a novel in my hand as I cook. LOL!)

But people who are into ebooks and have a reader really plow through the stories and you have to admit that in terms of space and cost, ebooks are rather attractive.
 
Darla - darn, why did hubby get it before you? *grin*

I don't have suggestion for you on recommendation PDA, but like you...I also need to buy me one of those thingie. I would love to hear recommendation here as well :)

Thanks for visiting my blog, as always, darla. Hope you have good day
