re: How are you guys reading these days?
East Baton Rouge Parish Library Recycled Reads sale. I know most are used, but some seem to be new. Anyway, $1 or so for a hardback...

Thrift stores. An occasional find of something old, out of print, and interesting that I've yet to read.

Library card and B&N.

So I guess everything except the Kindle.

re: How are you guys reading these days?

Mostly kindle, but I miss actual books. My problem is space and limited use of one of my hands.

I got a B&N nook when they first came out I was still working on a tug boat then ad tired of lugging a shopping bag full of paper backs to work and only coming home with half of them. I aint looked back my nook has 260 books in it lots of them only available as ebooks and it fits in my back pocket

I use the nook app on either my phone or a tablet.

It's self lit and I can change the font size so I don't have to wear my glasses.

I've had the Kindle Paperwhite for 7 years now and love it. Still a long battery life and the back light and adjustable font is easy on the eyes.

I also miss browsing through brick and mortar bookstores.

I would always run across something interesting.

Tried Kindle, but I eventually found my way back to print books.

I rarely buy a book new. Usually used.

I was buying through B&N and Amazon and then I discovered Thriftbooks.

Then I rediscovered the convenience of the Library Card. I plan it out so that I always have 2-3 books in my posession to read.

1. Check the library
2. If they don't have it, support my local used bookstore.
3. If they don't have it, buy used off of Amazon or ebay.

I prefer hardbacks for many reasons but sometimes a paperback just has to do. I've tried e-readers but I don't like it. I like the feel of a book in my hand, turning the pages, using a book mark to measure my progress. I'll continue to read physical books as long as they print them.

re: How are you guys reading these days?
If it's a book I expect to enjoy, I'll grab it on paperback. I enjoy doing re-read of the same fiction books every few years. I still really enjoy the tactile feedback of feeling the pages turn. Reading these stories over again is an experience for me more than just passing boredom. I can pick up one of my old favorites like the Halo books or X-Wing series, close my eyes, and just relive the memories of the first read in the pages.

Newer books, or books that are reference materials I am perfectly happy reading on my tablet with nook app.

All of the above. I like real books. I like the convenience of Kindle. I don’t like the prices on new books or ebooks. Library and used books good options. Books A Million has good sales. We have a Half Price Books store here in Mansfield; not too shabby.

Usually cruise the Goodwill stores for some hand-me-downs, never know what you're gonna find there. Picked up quite a few really nice hardcovers over the years for the price of dirt.

re: How are you guys reading these days?
Mostly print, also Audible in the car.
My big chunks of reading time seem to be sitting on airplanes.

I have a pretty big queue of paper books that I'll get to who-knows-when. Picked up lots of good books cheap at library sales when I lived in OH. Plenty of libraries up there, and it seemed one was having a book sale every other month.
I'm still a sucker for picking up something at B&N and I usually get something at an indie store if I come across one when I'm traveling. Hard to make progress on the book pile!

re: How are you guys reading these days?
Probably 9 out of 10 books I read now are on Kindle.I like physical books but I don’t have room for anymore.I get an email every day from this thing called BookBub,they’ll have around 5 books everyday on sale at Amazon-usually they’re $1.99.Most of them I’m not interested in but once in awhile there’s a good one.Interesting one I’m reading now is “Bad Land” by Jonathan Rabin,got it on BookBub.
