This week’s Musing Mondays, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, is:
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?
Let’s get this straight, I am a huge fan of dead-tree books and have more of them in my apartment than I have space to store them.
I have a Kindle, which I use to read free classics and review copies from NetGalley. I am getting used to it, although it forces me to read more slowly as I can’t scan a double page. I do like the fact that I can increase the font size which means I had read while at the gym and not get too dizzy.
I also have the Kindle app on my iPhone, which is a godsend on the crowded Central Line tube where there isn’t space to have a paperback open in front of you, but you can sort of nestle an iPhone against you at waist height and carry on being oblivious to the sardine conditions.
I also (as of November) have an iPad, but I haven’t moved any books onto it because I think I have quite enough devices from which to read already!
