do you read paperback books or use an e-reader to read? If you buy books where do you buy them?

I refuse to use an e-reader. I get my books from the library and occasionally I’ll buy some from BJ’s.
My Dh uses his kindle to read.

I use my phone. I always swore I wouldn't read digital books but it's just so convenient. I occasionally buy or get free downloads from Amazon but most I just borrow from the library. I love being able to get books instantly for free at home. I read a lot more since switching.

I prefer actual a lot! This is actually the reason I now own an e-reader. I have over 1,000 books in my house! Chat Icon

When I buy physical books, I usually get them on Amazon because we have no more book stores in Queens Chat Icon

Re: Books

I read a Kindle and love not having to lug a book into the city every day.

Re: Books

Kindle. Easier to carry around than a bulky book and there is NOTHING I hate more than having to store books. I read a book once and that's it.
I have enough shit in my house

Re: Books

I use my kindle (or the kindle app on my phone) for most books now.
I only buy actual hardcovers by my favorite authors. sometimes I will get books as gifts, and those are actual books.
DH usually buys my books at b&n in the city or at strand. For DS, if we buy an actual book it's Costco or he really enjoys trips out to Strand to pick them himself. Most of his come from scholastic through the school.
