General Reading Question
What avenue do most use when reading? Physical Book, Kindle/iPad, Audible?

Physical book. I stare at a computer screen 8+ hours a day. I don't want to do that during my down time.

Pretty much all Kindle these days. Convenience during travel made me buy one, and convenience of purchase, storage, lower price and easier access to self published authors made me pretty much go full kindle.

re: General Reading Question
Damn near exclusively audiobook now. I have a long commute, so I knock out plenty books this way.


I still read physical books before I fall asleep each night, but this really is the only time I get to do so now. As such it takes me way too long to finish a book.


I have never done kindle. For me it's all about feeling the weight of the book in my hands and the touch of the pages. That's a large part of the reading experience to me, plus I do not want to become that person that does everything digitally. We are becoming way too detached from the real world due to our devices, and this is a way to detach from them.

Always physical book. Doesn't matter if its paper or hardback. I stare at 3 monitors all day can't come and stare at another screen.
The wife uses a tablet or Kindle most of the time.

re: General Reading Question
I’m about 50/50

I like physical books but I like to browse the library and where I live you can’t right now so I’ll use my phone/kindle

I’ve never gotten into audiobooks

Almost exclusively audible... I have adhd and really struggle to focus when reading a physical book. It just takes too long. With audible I comprehend much better and I usually listen at 2x speed so I can really crush a lot of books which I love.

Not a huge fan of the Kindle, but Kindle Unlimited is so damn cheap.

re: General Reading Question
Physical Book and Audible / Libby audiobooks on road-trips.

Buying a Kindle though for books you can't find physical copies of for a reasonable price consistently.

But I try and read in the morning and in the evening, but sometimes i'm not really feeling it. I do the audiobooks as I take a long road trip for work once or twice a week. If I really am liking an audiobook I will also listen to it as I walk the dog and when I'm falling asleep at night. Its nice to have noise and a story but not have a bright tv light going.

re: General Reading Question
Generally hardcover.

But I always keep a few history books I'm interesting in loaded in audible for when I’m driving.

And I keep a lot of my favorite novels in audible too for when I want some background noise. I’ve read and listened to them all so many times that I don’t really care where in the story the book picks up at.

re: General Reading Question
Audible primarily. I really like the ability to do menial tasks or chores where I can be productive while just focusing on the reader. Or driving it’s nice, though WFH has cut down on that this year.

Sometimes I’ll have a physical copy of certain books I want to highlight or take notes in for later reference, so I’ll follow along at key parts.

re: General Reading Question
I've read over 500 books in the last 10 years. I don't have the physical space for that many books, which is why I read exclusively on a Kindle device or cloud app.

Physical and a little Kindle. I just cannot get into Audio book... I am way too ADD and miss out on things.

Damn, just out of curiosity how do you find the time to read that much?
