Musing Monday

Musings Monday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week’s musing asks…

What devices –if any– do you read books on? Do you find it enjoyable, or still somewhat bothersome? Or: If you only read the print books, why haven’t you chosen to read on any devices?

I have a Kindle, which I absolutely love for a number of reasons. Since I read a lot of books that are e-book only, my Kindle doesn't hurt my eyes like reading on the computer does. Plus it's a huge space saver - I have four double-stacked, packed bookcases and 16 boxes of books (not counting my college and law school texts) and things are still overflowing. Plus there's the instant gratification factor. Want to buy a book? One-click ordering.

That being said, I prefer reading print books. Nothing beats curling up with an actual paperback. I don't get the same feeling reading on my Kindle.
