I never thought I could take to a Kindle but since getting one that can be used day or night (Kindle Paperwhite), I've quite taken to it. Nice and compact, a fair amount of text fits into the screen and no having to hold the book open when reading in bed. Could an e-reader be for you, or will a proper book always be the preference?

I've tried with the kindle app and have several free books downloaded, but I don't feel as 'cosy' reading an ebook somehow...I think I much prefer a 'real' book !

E books since getting a kindle . So many free books some classics as well.

You do get some bad authors though, but tend to delete those and get another smile

I use my Kindle paper white in bed because I can read it in the dark without disturbing management.

I prefer to read a paper book because it is easier to flick back through the pages to remind you of something in the story you are unsure about.
