    Do you use some form of a tablet or an e-reader to read literature? Or do you prefer to read the actual book? If you use a tablet/e-reader, what kind do you use? Which one would you recommend?

    I only use books to read, since using a device to read would most likely distract me. My dad recently bought "1984" written by George Orwell, gonna read that when i'm done with the one i'm reading right now!

    I use both, Ive got a cheap LG tablet I use as a glorified ereader, its great when I travel. I think any half decent tablet will make a good ereader. books and their related apps arent usually very resource intensive.

    But I also buy/read books, theres a massive used book store near my apartment so I shop there a lot.

    I like the actually feel of the paper when I read. A tablet seems so weird when trying to read a book.

    I do both. I really like reading real books but don't currently have the space to store as many as I want.

    When it comes to reading on a device, I prefer my older kindle touch. I find myself getting distracted if I try to read anything on my ipad or phone, but most kindles aren't gonna do much else than display words. E-ink displays are as close to paper that a display can get, and aren't too harsh on the eyes vs a regular tablet.

    My hubby purchased a Kindle Fire for me last year. I'll read something on it occasionally but I prefer to read the actual book itself. There's nothing like the smell of the book while you're reading and turning the actual pages.
