    I don’t have one, but I’ve tried using Mr. Raccoon’s kobo. I’m still a big fan of normal books.

    I voted regular books because I’m unwilling to have them fade into oblivion, but I actually just got a Kindle Fire from my fiance yesterday and I LOVE it!

    I read a ton of books so I love my library. Although I can read books on my tablet, I still love regular books.

    I LOVE my kindle! I didn’t think I would, but I totally do. It’s so portable and I read a lot more with it. Just make sure you get one with free 3G so you can download books on the go.

    I love my old fashion books…  I don’t have a kindle but would consider putting certin stuff on my Fi’s tablet when I go back to school.  The kindle can never have the small of paper and binding…  I love that smell!

    Regular books for 3 reasons:

    1) I work at the computer all the time, and need a break from gazing at a digital screen

    2) Love going to the library and flipping through books to see what they’ve got

    3) I’m an illustrator and most of my books are related to that: science-y books, paleo books, and art books.  It’s nice to flip through an actual book and see the printed material for reference.  Also, many of these books are rather specialized and aren’t available digitally.

    Kindle!  I love not having 1,000 paperbacks all over the house!  It also gives me portability and ease of reading while not showing everyone what I am reading.

    @abirdword: agreed. I just love regular books. The smell, the feel, how it’s not ANOTHER piece of technology.

    I never thought I would switch to an ereader because I love the feel of books but Darling Husband bought me a Nook for my birthday and I love it! I did walk past a bookstore today and get all nostalgic but the nook is just so much more convenient.
