Since joining OBC and having access to the eBooks on here, I've begun downloading them on my Kobo Glo. I prefer it much more than my laptop because I can turn the backlight off so it doesn't hurt my eyes. I also have a little case on it that has a light attached to make reading easier. It's made me a lot more comfortable with eBooks.

The only thing I've come up with is to read on the e reader for a while and then before my eyes can get tired and itchy, I switch to a hard copy of another book for a while and then go back

I couldn't read an ebook. I like having a book in my hands, laying on my bed or across a chair on campus and flipping the pages. I would have to drag around my laptop any time I wanted to read a book.
I also love just having a book in hand. Although I have to admit that I find ebooks convenient and do love them as well. But I don't think I will ever love them as much as print books

I get books on my Kindle when I want to listen to the book while working around the house. The computer voice drives my husband crazy, but I don't mind. Most books I still like to hold in my hand though.

I love the feel of a paper book. I always purchase hard copies of my favorites. However, if I can't sleep and want to read, I don't want to turn on a light and disturb my husband. I've gotten in the habit of setting my kindle screen to white on black and setting the brightness really low. This way, it doesn't hurt my eyes, it's not horribly bright in the room, and I can still enjoy reading a good book in the middle of the night. During the daytime, I set my kindle to Sepia and the brightness isn't too jarring.
