I prefer to read in a phone or tablet rather than my computer, I would read twice slower than my regular reading if I read in my computer.

I don't think that I could read a long, proper novel on a computer. Maybe a short story.

Anyone is fine for me as long as the book is good.

I prefer to read on a kindle since it is portable, and I have a paperwhite so I don't have the glare of the computer to deal with.

I strain my back when I read on the computer so I usually use my phone or Kindle.

I don't have a kindle or e-reader, so my computer is the next best thing. The only problem with it is I sometimes get distracted and open new tabs when I am reading. However, this can also be convenient if I need to look up a word because I can just pull it up on the online dictionary.

I typically do not like to read on the computer even though the screen is bigger. It's just easier for me to read on my kindle and the glare doesn't hurt my eyes as bad.

I get easily distracted when reading on the computer. When I had PDF's to read for school, I had to print them out just so I could focus on the readings. I don't mind reading on a tablet or my phone, though, which is weird because they're essentially the same thing - just different screen sizes.

For me, reading on the computer steals away all the essence of reading. I usually read in the bed, curling under the quilt.
