I am currently reading 'Perfume: the story of a murderer' by Patrick Suskind. I have downloaded an ebook and am reading it in my laptop while at home or during breaks in my workplace and in my phone while journeying.

I am currently rereading The Little Broomstick by Mary Stewart. I enjoy reading through amazon kindle or downloading PDFs and doing it that way. I always have a paperback book with me somewhere. I use android products but I do like apple products as well. I do not currently own any.

I just got done reading The Different Kinds of Monsters by Seth Chambers. It's a sci-fi book so I had to make myself read 19 pages a day to keep with the 30 day limit.

I love reading on my phone. Nothing will ever beat a good old fashioned book but I really enjoy the convinence of being able to read on my phone. Whipping it out during class, work, social gatherings, whenever I have a spare moment. It makes it much easier and for trips who has the space for 10 books!

Hello,
I love apple too. But I use the Kindle app to read. I'm currently reading Solaris Seethes (book 1) by Janel McNulty. Pretty awesome so far :)

I'm using the Tolino vision 4HD and I love it. I decided to get it mostly because it was on a discount and because of the fact that it's waterproof. I love reading in the bathtub :lol2:

Right now, I'm reading Shepherding Cassie by Michael Oborn. I'm using my Kindle Paperwhite to read this one. I like being able to take notes, highlight, and control the lighting. If I want to have a lamp on while I read, I just drop the background on it to zero. I will say that I always prefer a tangible book. The older the book, the more it smells. Right in the spine, it smells like a maw-maw on the 4th floor of a library. She's right where the light fades into the musty book stacks. She peers over her shoulder to check if she's alone. She is, but she looks again anyway. Maw-maw slowly reaches into her big ass purse with beads of sweat covering her upper lip. Is she nervous? Nah, she just needs a spritz of Chanel No. 5. That is what an old book smells like to me. It's not the smell of a flower, but it's oddly comforting.

I am reading, Someone by Alice McDermott, on my Ellipsis 7 tablet. The reason I like using a tablet to read is so I can read in bed. There are many times I do not fall asleep until 2 in the morning. Reading without a light on means I usually do not disturb my husband with a light.

I won a Kindle Fire a few years ago from the Southern Women's Show so that is what I mostly use to read my e-books on. Right now I have a few different ones that I'm reading. My two current favorites are A Perfumer's Secret by Adria J. Cimino and The Art of Enchantment by M.A. Clarke Scott. I'm really loving both of the storylines and the strong female characters.

I'm using my laptop to read "Heaven and Earth." I typically read physical copies of books, but I switch it up every now and then.

I used to read physical copies of books, but now use mostly my Kindle. I now have over 6,000 books on it. I love reading.
