Within about a week in May I purchased a refurbished iPad2 and found myself with an iPhone (courtesy of my husband). I dutifully loaded them with the Kindle app and books determined to give reading on them a try. I love to have books with me everywhere, but when I had a Kindle, I really didn’t use it. For some reason it just didn’t click as an enjoyable reading experience for me.
The iPad is great for reading if I’m sitting up (on a train, in a car, waiting somewhere, etc.), but I’m finding it a bit cumbersome for reading in bed or reading while I’m working around the house…my husband laughs when he catches me reading as I blow-dry my hair. The iPhone works better in those settings, but I find I am constantly advancing the page because I read FAST. But the smaller size makes it surprisingly easy to read while on the go or in bed.
Do you have an e-reader? Do you like it? Why or why not? I still think my preference will remain a physical book. There’s just something about holding it that I love. Though one of the books I read recently on a reader, I’m likely to purchase in physical form. Doesn’t hurt that it’s by one of my favorite authors, Randy Singer.
