Booking Through Thursday : E-volution

This week’s Booking Through Thursday asks:

“E-readers like the Kindle and iPad are sweeping the nation … do you have one? Do you like it? Do you find it changes your reading/buying habits? If you don’t have one, do you plan to?”

I don’t have an e-reader. Before I use to say that I don’t need one either. But now that I am spending so much time commuting to and fro for my work, I am thinking that I want one. Carrying a book around especially if it’s heavy gets difficult at times. An e-reader can solve that problem.



  1. Now that the eReaders have broken the $100 barrier (the cheapest I know of is the $79 Kindle), I can see more people taking the plunge. It’s a really useful thing to have if you travel a lot since it weighs next to nothing really.

    1. Yes, I guess the price of e-readers going down may also contribute to more people getting them. But the weight issue for me trumps the price one, now that I spend so much time commuting. 🙂

  2. I think travel is the one major advantage e-readers have over real books. Given my preference for real books, it’s a good thing I don’t travel much.

    My BTT post is here if you’d like a look 🙂

  3. I completely agree, especially if you like switching between different books but don’t want to carry them all. Or, if you finish the book you have with you and then nothing else to read!
