Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Take the e-reader poll

Didn’t get a lot of responses yesterday on this, so I’m keeping it open. Take an msec — won’t you? — and let me know what kind of e-reader you use.

To the 10 people who have voted, thank you for being responsible e-citizens!


PS — Feel free to comment via the poll to clarify things like your preference when you own more than one device.

    Sorry I didn’t see this yesterday. It’s hell month at work and I’m missing a lot of good (and preferred) online conversation ;( Anyway, took the poll. I actually have read ebooks on more than one platform, but Kindle has become my primary ebook reader. I know … more information than you really need 😉

      Thanks, Marie! And the extra deets help. Seems like a lot of people have at least two devices but lean toward the Kindle format even when they’re reading on a tablet or phone or something like that. My Nook, for instance, is in an almost permanent state of suspended animation …

        Yeah, I bought a Kobo a long time ago and now wish I hadn’t. (Work is such right now that I wish I were in a different line of work … ☹️)

    Not sure if your poll provider is allowing me more than one vote, but as I said yesterday, our household reads on Kindle, Kobo and Tablet. (Kobo and Tablet for library books, Overdrive format.)

      Yes, it’s set to one vote per, but your situation is duly noted!

    The Nook tablet I have is a Samsung tablet sold by Barnes and noble , I also have the kindle app on it.

    I HAD a really nice Asus 10 inch tablet and left it on the cab of my truck then drove to work.

      Ouch! That’s the problem with these delicate (and pricey!) gizmos we’re carting around with us. Funny how you could have left a paperback on your truck and it would’ve been just fine …

    Your poll is flawed in that it does not include “I do not own an e-reader.” I’m caught between wanting to support your polling success and not having an e-reader. Also, this post needs more nudity.

      I should have added “Trump” as an answer. That would take care of all the outliers.

      Most of what I do in life lacks nudity. 😩

    Just so you know I voted yesterday.

    Aloha Kevin,

    I have both a Kindle and an iPad. I think I prefer reading on the Kindle.

    A Hui Hou,

      Thanks, Wayne. It’s looking like Kindle is the format of choice …
