How do you do your reading? Audiobooks, books, kindle.
Because of my vision loss, I tend to Kindle!

Books. I've started using the library again after years of only borrowing kid's books. I have an app and put new releases on hold and they text me when they come in (some books take months to get to me). Then I pop across the road from work to collect them from the library. Oddly, I have never actually browsed the novels at the library, I always put the books I want on hold. The books I hold are from all over Vic so I can pretty much find any book I'm after on the library app.

DH bought me an ipad years ago for reading, we use it for everything but. I don't like reading on it. I tried out my sister's Kindle and preferred the way it was lit.

I read both books and ebooks on my iPad. I actually find I read more if the books are on my iPad.

We've got the same in SA now - I love the reservations system. I use it for my books and Cassie's. I don't have a kindle and don't like reading on the iPad that much.

Kindle and books from the library. I reserve mine as well. No browsing shelves.

I tried the Kindle and the iPad and found I much prefer the good old book. The iPad, being backlit, hurt my eyes too much. The Kindle I found to be okay, but not the same as turning the pages of a good book.

Love reading on my Kindle. There's an app, overdrive, that you can reserve ebooks from libraries. Pretty cool except for popular books may take a long time to get

Hi,

I normally used Kindle at night for reading, while lying on bed having soft quilt!
