Well, before I got my Kindle Fire, and at the beginning, I was feeling like I preferred holding a real book. That feeling quickly dissipated. I read more when I'm going to sleep and I like to be fully under the covers, so my Kindle has been a God-send! I can prop it up on the wall or my chair pillow and just lay there and read hands-free. Now when it's time to turn the page, that's a little tough. I'm thinking I need a voice activated thingy like "turn page now, Mr. Kindle Fire... Thank you, Mr. Kindle Fire."
"Cook me breakfast, Mr. Kindle Fire."
"Fire up my favorite vibrator, Mr. Kindle Fire."
"Feed my kitty cats, Mr. Kindle Fire."
"Get up and take the kids to school, Mr. Kindle Fire."
LOL. Okay, okay. Sorry I got way out of hand there. That was exciting though. But I've learned usually if I press hard enough, my hand, while still under the covers will often turn the page. Then again, it often takes me a few pages back too though. This is pathetic, but I've even used my elbow and FOREHEAD to turn the page! Bahaha. Beats bringing your hands out of the covers.
The only thing about it is the books are about double, sometimes even triple what I pay for my good-condition, but used books at my local bookstore! I trade in tons of books I've already read because I do still read paperback, and the owner gives me credit, so I often get a fabulous deal -- sometimes less than a dollar a book! That's great for a Mary Higgins Clark fan because most of her (and many other authors) are no less than $6 on Amazon! It's ridiculous really.
So Kindle is much easier for me to see and to hold/use, while a paperback is a real pest because I have to have two hands holding it open and that's no fun when you're reading til' you fall asleep or reading while ironing your hair, which is very convenient with the Kindle by the way.
