Musing Mondays (Jan.16)

This week Should be Reading asks:

What devices --if any-- do you read books on? Do you find it enjoyable, or still somewhat bothersome? Or: If you only read the print books, why haven't you chosen to read on any devices?



I got a Kobo Vox for Christmas and have just started to read off of that, but the primarily mode for reading for me is definitely is my print books.  One reason is that I am worried that I am going to leave my Vox somewhere.  Another reason is that the paper versions of books are almost exactly the same price as that as the price for the e-book, at least that is the case for Chapters.  Thirdly, I can borrow more paper copies of a book through my library than I can e-books, which is limited to five vs. the 60 paper copies that I could borrow.   There is the small issue that I don't have a credit card in order to purchase an e-book and I need to ask Chapters or Coles what to do if I don't have a credit card.


Hope everybody has a good Monday!

I think I just have bad luck with my library in prints. They have waaaaay more ebooks that I read. I have to say, I love the convenience of my Kindle, but there's just nothing as good as holding a book.

there are a lot of free e-books and cheap e-books out there to borrow or buy..but yes, the lack of a credit card may be an issue.

I find eBooks are MUCH cheaper than print, not to mention the hundreds that are free -- I wonder if it's different in Canada?

Here's my post.

Sounds like an ebook is not the best for you, but wish you luck. I love my Kindle!

That would be extra-bad to leave my Nook somewhere accidently!! Yikes! I still love it, tho...

Some e-readers will let you use gift cards, if you don't use a credit card. I know Nook will.

I just recently purchased a Nookcolor e-reader, and I am liking it. However, I still like reading print books, I doubt I will ever give them completely up.
