    Default How do you read your books?

    Do you have a Kindle/nook or read physical books?

    If you are using an e-reader, where do you get most of your books?


    My SIL got me a Kindle for my Birthday. I didn't think I could be converted, but I'm loving it. Free books are kinda hit or miss though. I'm wodering if there are secrets for cheaper books that I do not know about.

    I have a tablet that I LOVE! I get most of my books from the library. Love being able to get them anytime and not having to bother to return them. I agree that the free books are pretty hit and miss...I haven't found a great source for cheaper books yet, so I'll be watching this thread

    I do a lot of reading on our iPad using the Kindle app. There are blogs out there telling you what's free that day, so I get a lot of free books. The one I can remember off the top of my head is pixelofink.com. I also have a two friends who share on their FaceBook pages free books that they recommend - BookingIt (she does romance and erotica book reviews on her blog) and Jeanette Murray (fellow military wife friend who is a fantastic romance author). The key to remember is that often the good books are only free for a day, two max.

    I do still read physical books. Especially those that I may want to lend out to others or those that I can get for far cheaper in paperback than on the kindle.

    I love to hold a regular old book. I do have a kindle fire and have yet to read a book on it. LOL

    When I do read it is either reading a book or I will find the book on CD and listen to it in the car on my way to/from work.

    I just learned today that public libraries offer ebooks for e-readers! I thought this was kind of cool, if you used an e-reader. Could save you some money. (You all probably know this, but I am a bit slow with this technology! )

    My library takes forever to lend out e-books and their selection is terrible. I hope it gets better as time goes.
