Do you own an e-reader, or have you ever read a book on an e-reader?

“I have always been an avid reader and I love actual books! I don't know what it is but I don't like digital readers at all. Call me old fashioned.”

“I don't own a e-reader, and I have never read one. I have looked at my daughter’s, and they look really interesting, But I really like reading out of a book.”

“I personally own a Kindle E-reader. I love everything about it except for the fact that you have to pay for an Amazon Prime subscription to get access to the free library. Whether the book is bound or digital really makes no difference to me; I will say, however, there are just some books that demand to be read outside of technology. A prime example of this would be books like Beowulf or The Count of Monte Cristo. I feel it an injustice to read these classics outside of their original format: ink and paper. Of course, sometimes the cost options of books outweigh this. Old books that do not have to be translated are generally free because the copyright has expired. This is a huge plus for any student.”
