I'm actually becoming quite addicted to my e-reader. The problem with them is that it's too easy to purchase books on a whim that I could just as easily get from my local library.
"Real" books are better at home. E-readers are great for traveling or having on hand for work/md appts/long lines, etc.
I just read all year round, my favorite past time. I now have the Nook to tuck into my purse, always have something on hand to read.
Reading is great all year long!
Why didn't you include audio books in your preferred methods of reading? For many readers, audiobooks are the preferred method of reading, especially if you're blind, low-visioned, an auditory learner or a multi-tasker.
I always have two or three books I am reading...seasons notwithstanding! I usually load up at the library, but received a Nook this year for Mother's Day so am trying it out now. I like the idea for traveling, especially, but there is something special about having the book in my hands....
Fight for books....
I love my Kindle, but I wish I could check books out from my library on it. They don't have that capability.
Re #2 above, I like and use both traditional books and ebooks (ipad).
Wish there was more time to do it!
For me, there is no such thing as only "summer reading." There is only reading -- which is a daily activity. And, while I'd rather have the book in hand, I am seriously looking into the e-readers so I that I get one before my next big vacation. I figure I can lose a suitcase if all my reading material is in one small package!
Summer reading MUST be light, brainless, silliness. Even our brains need a little vacation......
Too busy enjoying activities the warm weather to be reading! Although, I do like to sit in my Sky Chair in the backyard listening to my waterfall and the birds reading a magazine...
There is nothing better - the hum of lawmowers and the tweeting of birds in the background, the warm kiss of the sun. So much more satisfying than winter reading, huddled in blankets (I'm from Canada).
I get books on tape for the car since I have very little time to read. Makes the drive interesting!
I love to read in Summer...a tradition I started 40 years ago at my hometown library. It was newly built and I felt encouraged to enjoy reading (I read Gone With The Wind at age 14). To keep things from getting boring, I don't stay in any one genre...I like to switch things up from history, fiction, non-fiction, light and heavy subjects. For the longer books, I prefer to read on my Kindle. However, nothing beats a real live book in my hands! There are sooooo many places your mind can go in a book!!
