How popular have "readers" become?

If you are reading a book, do you do so with paper in hand or a new "reader" (Kindle, Nook, I pad, Smart Phone...etc)?

I am big into high tech electronics. I love my big smart phones and tablets, but when it comes to a book, I just cannot get the feel of it, without a "real" paper book in hand. I was wondering how common that feeling is?

I wouldn't be opposed to using one, but since I don't have one and I honestly don't read for pleasure that often I don't think it is worth getting one.

While I prefer a real book my nook reader is very convenient....

Same here, but I use the iPhone cause it's always with me rather than a nook.

Real books annoy me because I don't like dealing with bookcases full of books and having to dust them and be on the lookout for mold and silverfish. An iPad lets me carry an entire library with me and also serves other functions. I don't like small readers but an iPad is large enough for reading textbooks and magazines. It also weighs less and is less bulky than most of my textbooks. I'd be interested in the Kindle Paperwhite if it came with a larger screen and could display graphics.

I love my Kindle. I have an older one and am looking forward to an upgrade, I like e-readers for novels. I hope e-readers get better for things like text books.

I tend to prefer real books, but I end up using my smartphone for a lot of reading, since it's infinitely portable and I'm pretty much guaranteed to have it on my at any given time.

I love love love hardcover books, but I use my reader (a regular Kindle) most of the time. I have thousands of books on my Kindle, and would have never have had the room to keep them all at my place.

While I love the idea of "Readers" and the lack of weight/space they use and take up - Nothing can replace that tactile satisfaction that comes from turning the pages of good book.

too much technology just gets in the way.

I like both. Physical books are great, but the ease with which you can transport an entire library in one little electronic device cannot be ignored.

Exactly. No more need to pack books when I go on trips for the plane ride! I have all the entertainment I need with me already.

I saw a bunch of people with these on our last cruise. However, it amazes me how many paperbacks are still being read. Mine included.

You know, book cases used to be a sign of elegance in a home. It represented wealth (books were not cheap and mass produced) and educated homeowners. They were really a status symbol.

Well said. Exactly how I feel.

I prefer real books, but I use my e-reader more often. I have tons of books just waiting to be read on my Kindle, but I still can't pass up making purchases at the local used book store. I have shelves of books that I have already read. I'll be donating them soon.

I am always reading one on my kindle app and a paper one too. I wouldn't want to give up either one.

I don't have an e-reader, other than the iBook app on my iPhone. I wouldn't be opposed to owning a tablet reader later on when I can afford it.

But I like the tactile experience of reading a paperback or hard copy book.
