With the new year comes new gadgets,and thanks to the excess of devices (many are quite workable) still floating around from past years, a reader has many choices for reading devices.
Every few months I like to post an open question where I share what I’m using, and ask readers what gadgets they are reading on. And this time around I am adding an informal poll, just to make things more interesting.
I’m curious about what device you are reading on, and if you’re using a mobile device, what app you use.
As for me, I’ve been known to pick up a book once or twice* but most of my book reading happens on my Pocketbook InkPad. This is an 8″ ereader with an odd-looking one handed design that works better than it looks.
Edit: If you select other, please let us know what you’re using.
* There are still a lot of ebooks which I would like to read but balk at paying full price when I can get a paper copy for under $7. Neal Stephenson’s The Diamond Age, for example, costs $10 even though it is close to 20 years old and widely available used. There’s also a series of books by Peter Gethers on the adventures of his cat, Norton. Those books are 20 years old and yet cost $10 each as ebooks – while the paper copies cost $4 each.
Those prices are simply too damned high.
