I use my Kindle for books, but I found I really disliked reading magazines on it. Not just the lack of illustrations --and really, whose idea was it that The New Yorker could be itself in a Kindle edition?--but the forced directionality. I don't want to read a magazine from front to back. I haven't tried reading any anthologies on the Kindle, or any non-fiction where I would want to go back and find some specific passage. But the reason I got it, besides being able to use it at the gym, is that I am a biologist who does a lot of field work in the summer, and I was so jealous of my field techs last year when they had 8 days' worth of reading in a single light, thin Kindle while I was carefully rationing out two books that I had to lug into the backcountry in a backpack. So I am very excited to join that particular part of the 21st century this year.

Both. I use the kindle app on my phone and tablet. I love that I can access books from the library without leaving home. The only thing is that there are only a few licenses for most books so I have to wait for new items a lot longer.

All I can say is, I can see where this thread is going to end up leading me right into the 21st century, lol... I have an Asus Transformer tablet, which is the first gizmo I've had that has a reader app. (The Smartphone's Android screen is too dinky, so I never tried it with a reader.) I haven't really done anything with the one on the Asus, but I'm getting closer...

I have not used my new "Paper-white" Kindle at all because I've been reading and reviewing diet and cook books, which I procure from the library. Mr. Greasy Joan, however, has forsaken his Kindle 1 (first generation) for my paper-white "temporarily". Every now and then I load on new books. Many of them are free or very low-cost 19th and early 20th century novels and I have a lot of poetry and I have some history/biography books that physically weigh about 4 or 5 pounds.

By my calculations, I have enough unread books to last some 400 years. I also love to reread books so if you add in the rereading factor, you've got a millenium's worth of reading.

HI -
I think like most of you, I like my Kindle for some things, and "real" books for some things. I used to have a Kindle 2 (anyway, not backlit and not good for anything illustrated). Then I discovered I could have a free Kindle for Mac on my laptop and a whole world opened up of books that look fantastic on my screen. I do a lot of sewing/quilting and work with color and fabrics, so all of those books are now available to me to download from Amazon. A lot of times, though, I just do a sample.... and don't end up buying.

I still am a regular patron at my local library, for many reasons: I don't want to spend $ for books that I can borrow, I believe in the role of the library for our communities, and I love to browse the shelves and just lose myself in a whole range of books for a while.

At Christmas, Santa brought me an iPad Mini, which I adore, and I have a Kindle reading app on that as well, so everything looks fantastic on the screen. Someone asked why certain books didn't work well on the Kindle -- but that's only the original or paperwhite (I think) Kindles that are mainly for text. The Kindle app on the iPad works well because it's backlit so I can read more easily at night. It seems silly, but one of the reasons my husband (oh, I mean Santa) got me the iPad Mini was because the click-click-click of me reading my Kindle in bed bothered him. With the backlit Mini, I just swipe and he can snooze on undisturbed, apparently!

Just looked up "Kobo" which folks have mentioned, and will delve into that site. It's an app for any reader?? I'm not familiar with this ....

Better get on to my day, friends!

I forgot to mention that before my husband gave me one for Christmas 2011 I would never have considered getting one for myself. I hated the idea of them. I think I lumped them in with my feelings (fanatical? yes.) about smart phones and the concurrent frenzied use of texting, etc. So, I was surprised to discover how quickly and how much I have used my Kobo. It is not back-lit and I found it very annoying to use (pages inadvertently advancing with the slightest touch on the device) until I got a rigid cover for it. And a clip on night light. My husband had already downloaded hundreds of books I was eager to read so that was thrilling. We live very frugally on a small pension and the income from boarding a few dogs so buying books is not an option. I'd been re-reading the 400 or so books I own. Oh, don't feel sorry for me. When your short term memory is as poor as mine it's almost like reading them for the first time.

I agree, Libby, having this thread is great to see some of the pros and cons. I find myself moving toward the "Want one" side of the spectrum - and didn't expect to! That phrase "library in a bag" keeps beckoning me, and added to the convenience of reading on the fly, well, I'm thinking -

This is great to read as I don't have an e-reader and have been wondering if I should get one for when I travel (convenience of not having to carry books around or being nervous of running out of reading on a plane). I though love paper books. Love touching them and seeing them in my house. And the fact that you can't share them easily - like in a book club - or exchange them in the wonderful second hand book shops we have here (South Africa - and have wonderful shops that have out of print books etc etc run by people that just love them) really puts me off.

I agree, JECKIE. It's just that by *my* method of referencing, I tend to flip back and forth through a paper book and locate by "feel," or sometimes by graphics on the page (even if that only means the visual layout of the paragraph spacing). If it's a topic I return to often, that page frequently will open up easier (probably due to stress on the binding) than surrounding pages. Yes, I do use the highlighter, and the "search" works great, which is to mean it finds all instances of whatever you put in the search string. But then you have to filter through each one of those hits to find the one you wanted. It's just frustrating for me, since I could have found it in seconds by my "usual" method. Another lightly irritating feature is that on *my* Kindle model, there are no page numbers. It's all "locations." Really, a number is a number, isn't it? But I'm hidebound enough to want to see a page number! I frequently will put a little post-it sticky on the inside of one of the covers listing passages I return to frequently and don't want to have to search for. With Kindle, I get EVERYbody's notations. I suspect that, if I was to spend sufficient time to learn how, there must be a method to remove all other users' highlights. At that point, I could probably only search my own highlighted portions, and it would go a lot faster. (I'm surprised by some of the things others highlight!)

I wouldn't give up my Kindle for anything, even so. I do like it a lot. Mine is the "old" model, with a little keyboard and no backlighting. Do the new ones even have that? I was encouraged by various family members as to how much I'd prefer the new Fire...so I did go and look at it. It's too much like a computer to me. I don't want a bunch of apps. I just want to read! and I'd like it to be as nearly simple as it can get. You can have the Fire. I'm not even all that excited about touch screens, because I have Raynaud's and my fingertips are frequently too cold for the screen to recognize. I always tell anyone who asks about readers that they'll find a way to love it and it will become indispensable to them once they get used to it. I still think that's true. I have minor reservations about research, that's all!

Exotec, you're not the first person I've heard talk about ereaders not working for reference. I find it interesting because one of the biggest reasons I first got into e-readers was for my school text books, which were available in PDF format and much easier to carry than my big huge texts.

I used a PDF reader on the iPad at the time, which allowed for notations, bookmarking, etc. (which, by the way, the Kindle also allows). I found it to be a great tool for that.

Not saying you're wrong, just that it's interesting how different people perceive the usefulness of different tools. :)

I like my Kindle...but I love my books too! I read such a variety of things...for novels and basic "reads," the Kindle is fine. But when I am reading something for reference it just doesn't work like a paper book. I can't flip back and forth, I can't make notations, it just doesn't lend itself to that kind of reading.

Another annoying aspect of the Kindle is that if I search through the offerings on Amazon and chance upon some title or author I'm unfamiliar with - for which I'm only willing to pay trade prices - it frequently turns out to be some condensed or mini form. That keeps me busy for perhaps a few hours. If I want the *real* "whole book," the price isn't always much less expensive than the paper volume. And I can trade my paper book at a local shop or via paperbackswap (as another member mentioned).

I do love being able to carry around a whole library in my bag, though! Sometimes I have things I'd like to share with others, and it works okay for that. Sometimes. If I'm looking for a particular passage, I still have the difficulty mentioned above about references. But it's better than not having it at all.

When I got my "broadband" modem, a guy came to install it. I saw a few cockroaches crawling out of it and I insisted that he take it away and get me another one. And they were big! He kept saying that they must have been in my house because they would not have been in his truck.

He worked for Time Warner and I got more than a little bit peeved (today I probably would have simply heaved a sigh) so I called them and they admitted that OTHER customers have cockroches who inflict them on poor little old Time Warner, a local Ma and Pa operation that's just trying to scrape by.

Toni Morrison is among the most poetic of authors. Her works can be very lyrical and nostalgic and stunning.

Game of Thrones: oh, I'm with you, sweetie. The Red Wedding disturbed my sleep - no kidding, nightmares and all - and stayed with me for days. And I never had it that bad with a book before. Visuals - film - yes. Books, no. eGAD, but it was horrid!

Re the Kobo: you sure it wasn't just the warmth of the device? The ex worked for an electric company, and he said the roaches would pack every available cubic inch of transformers and generators, because it was so nice and warm. This was in Maryland, and they find the giant roaches even in mid-summer, so I think cockroaches just like it extra hot.

You'll have to excuse me now. I feel like my skin is crawling and I'm gonna take a bath, lol...

Laughing out loud at the bug discussion because, well...

We went to Hautulco, Mexico in November. I took my Kobo, natch, and finished the last book in the Game of Thrones series which left me feeling panic-y and bereft. I don't know if the rest of you get attached to characters in books but I'm well aware of how ridiculous I am in this regard. (I've longed to meet Atticus Finch nearly my entire life, ferinstance.) I started reading Toni Morrison's 'Jazz' next and came across a sentence in it that WOULD NOT leave me alone. I'd think of it and burst into tears for days. It was a great trip and the hotel was lovely but for some reason I had trouble sleeping...would wake up in the middle of the night, wide awake, nothin' to do but read. So, I turned on my bedside lamp, picked up my Kobo, opened the jacket intending to dive back into Jazz...and at least 30 tiny-to-medium-sized cockroaches went scurrying everywhere! Why they loved that particular article I have no idea because I did not see any anywhere else the entire trip. I did not get any more sleep that night.

Oh - Em - Gee, bedbugs in the libraries?!? Silverfish and the ever-present cockroaches... moth larvae (which is where that whole "bookworm" thing comes from I think), but - bedbugs? Gah!

Yes, that'd definitely motivate me to learn to use a Kindle. On the other hand, it's the kind of thing that will decrease library usage even more, which in turn will lead to the closing of more libraries...

There's a topic. Is the day of the public library over?

Back to the subject at hand: why is the format of diet / health / recipe books different from paper?

p.s. Natalie, is the Peter the Great bio the one by Robert Massie? That's the only big-volume one I remember reading.

I'm really fond of paper but I got myself a Kindle Paper White last month. I was spurred on by a big biography I was reading of Peter the Great. It was a great book but it was about 1,300 pages and weighed almost 4 pounds. I kept dropping it on my toes.
So....my new rule is that I will permit myself to get something on Kindle if it's a book that is big and heavy.

And I also loaded up my Kindle with a lot of free of charge public domain books---everything by Thomas Hardy and a few Victorian novels that I would not mind trying but would hesitate to invest in. By people with names like Disraeli, Gosse, Mrs. Humphrey Ward and Mrs. Henry Wood.

I like reading books from the library but having heard about the bed bug infestation in local libraries (bugs getting into the books) I am all the happier that I have a Kindle. There are authors whose work I would like to support by actually plunking down cash for them.

Reading reviews on amazon.com has told me that trying to read diet and health books and cook-books on e-readers is very difficult. The formatting is hard to deal with.
Right now I've been reading and looking at a number of diet books (from the library procured pre-bed-bug scare) and I am also reading for work so it might be a while before I do any recreational reading.

Grace, I used to do the same with my books. However, I then discovered paperbackswap.com and that went out the window! LOL I traded all but the books I cherish the most and got new books to read! (more, likely, than I had before, but that's neither here nor there)

I have paid for very few ebooks. I haunt the "free" offerings like crazy and grab anything that looks interesting. I also use a price tracker so books I want I put alerts on so I know when they are super cheap. :)

I've been eying my bookcases and thinking about online sales...but I've lugged most of them around for 30-40 years, moved them dozens of times and thousands of miles. Can I be heartless enough to dispose of them after all that? I dunno. Maybe.

I got my Kobo Christmas before last and have started reading a lot more than had become typical for me in the past 10 years or so. My eyesight went south on me around the age of 50 and reading was difficult. I find it much easier with the ability to enlarge the print. I'm still reading books as well but mostly those loaned to me by neighbours who are even older and less technified than me. I do so hate curling up in bed at night with the intention of reading for an hour (or four) only to have that exasperating 'It's time to recharge' message pop up. Then I'm only too glad to have an old fashioned paperback to fall back on. I'll probably use both for as many years of reading as I have left in my tired old eyes.

I'm old enough to have a great affection for paper. Lots of trees have died on my account. And I still love the books I kept after my last purge. But I was given a Kobo for my birthday last year - and I am hooked. It was starting to get expensive, but then I found what a huge collection of ebooks that the library has. I can get the latest reads for a minor wait.

I love having lots of books with me. I thought I was in a mood for Elizabeth the Queen but maybe The Locator looks better by the time I get to my appointment. And I have some reference books that weigh pounds -- much easier to put in a pocket on the Kindle emoticon

I never thought I'd say this, but once I started reading on my iPod touch (not even as big as a Kindle), I started ignoring my paper books.

It all started when I got the iPod from work, when I was doing long commutes on public transportation. The train was OK, but the inter-city buses turn off the lights in the dark. No good for books, but the iPod is back-lit....

Then I just got used to it. And like Jeckie--I think it has something to do with being able to carry so many favorite books with me wherever I go....

Oh. Then there's the fact that I live in Israel, and the selection of English books is a lot smaller--and they're a lot more expensive! But ordering from Amazon or something is even worse, when you add in shipping. So being able to download is GREAT.

But, um, then it starts getting expensive just because it's so easy to buy. So maybe I need to go back to paper!!! LOL!

I have no "goal weight". MY goal is to be as healthy, strong and active as I can be. This isn't about my relationship with the scale but my relationship with the world.

Looking for recipes? I keep a Paleo-friendly recipe board on Pinterest! http://pinterest.com/jeckie/mostly-paleo/

So far I haven't been able to get on with any of the electronic media - my eyesight isn't all that great, so I find myself enlarging to the point where it's annoying to keep moving around for the next "page." And like you, sometimes I want to flip back to something ("What was his name again?") and I just find it easier to home in on things visually.

But having said that, I also suspect it's mostly a matter of getting used to something, so once I'm (ahem) forced to, like sitting in a waiting room or at the airport, I'll find a way to make it work.

I love my kindle but still get comfort from a paper book. Opinions?
The biggest problem I have with E books is I can't pass them on as easily.
Also, I find it easier to flip back than search.
