I asked something similar over a year ago. Now they say readers are all the rage (quickly becoming one of "the" holiday items for 2013). SO.......

Do you own or plan to get a "reader" this year?

I have the kindle app on my smart phone and use it sometimes. So I can't justify the money for a reader.

If someone bought one for me, cool. I'd probably use it. I don't think I'd buy one for myself just because I don't think I'd use it enough to justify the money spent on it. Then again, I've never had one so I don't know what to expect.

I told my husband if he ever bought me a reader I'd use it as a cutting board. I no like them.

I can't handle reading from a screen for extended periods. Plus, I love the smell of books, and the feel as well.

I have one, but still often read books as well. It's convenient for my purse, so I have a bunch of things with me to read in a compact size.

I have one, but have been spending all of my "reading energy" on textbooks for grad school (for the most part). I also love the smell and feel of actual books.

I love my Kindle. It'll never be the same as a book, but I can't have every book that I might possibly want to read with me at any moment in physical form - something that I can have on my Kindle. I actually can't handle reading on "laptop" screens (including iPads, Fires, etc) for extended periods of time, but my eyes treat my Kindle Keyboard as a normal book.

I have one and I love it. I still love and read books as well, as evidenced by my overflowing bookshelf, but readers are incredibly convenient. Much easier to carry around, especially if you're reading something that is huge in print like Game of Thrones. E-books are cheaper than print, also, which my bank account really appreciates.

Never heard anyone mention the smell. Interesting.

Hummmm....I know they keep adding features, but the "cutting board" feature is a new one to me.

The new "Papewhite" readers are supposed to be even better!

Seriously? You don't know what a reader is? A small tablet that basically downloads books off any WiFi networks (which are just about anywhere) and then you can buy and load books onto them and read off the tablet, instead of toting around a book. If you really pay attention in any place people gather (beach, mall, cruise, schools) you will see people using them.

Some schools, even grad schools, tried switching to readers (saves cost and the backs of students not having to lug tons of books for years), but most students prefer books, even at "high tech" schools and in "techie" professions. A very interesting thing.

I don't mean to be Mr. Technical but by reader, does the OP mean tablet that is restricted to ebooks only or tablets in general?

If it's tablets in general, I'm in! Love them and really enjoy the functionality they offer. Mine is a Kindle, a Nook and an epub reader. If I may ask a loaded question, why didn't these come along years ago?
