I do have a Kindle, but would prefer to read a hardcopy.

I have a kindle, but I prefer reading actual, solid books. I love how they feel in my hand, how they smell and adding them to my bookshelf. I tend not to get too into reading on my kindle and I do so only if the hardcopy of the book is too expensive or if I need to travel. When I travel I take around 10 books with me, so using a kindle instead helps reduce all that weight and space.

I have a Kindle, but I actually almost never use it because it takes time to haul it out and turn it on. It's an older Kindle also, without color like the Kindle Fire, which may be why I don't feel drawn to it--all that grayscale. I do use my smartphone Kindle app constantly, though, so I'd say I like using Kindle. I read a lot of ebooks and I'm pretty much 50/50 on them vs. print.

I struggled for a long time with the idea that reading on a kindle wasn't really reading. But when I started traveling, I quickly realized that it wasn't really feasible to carry books. I bought my kindle and never looked back, since I love that I was able to read and carry all of my long, epic fantasy books in one device.

Yes i do love my Kindle. It has helped ease the stress that comes with having to carry along a book whenever I want to read. I still love reading hard copies but also love the advance in technology that allows you to read or buy books at the click of a button.

Yes! I love my kindle. I was devastated last Christmas when I discovered that I'd managed to break my old kindle at some point on my travel. But when I replaced it with a touch screen version, I've noticed that the user-friendliness of the new one has made me use it even more than the old one :P

I received a Kindle for Christmas last year, and I love it! It's so lightweight and easy to carry, and since I don't have much space for physical bookshelves, it comes in handy for book storage. But I still like paperback books. I go back and forth between paperbacks and my Kindle. Either one is good. :)

I finally got a Kindle last month. I chose the Oasis with 3G and it is perfect for me. Super lightweight so my hand never get tired. So ergonomically comfortable. Easy on my eyes as I suffer from severe migraines. Beautiful leather charging case and is small enough to always have your library with you. It has changed how I spend my free time.

I have a Kindle and I wouldn't trade it for anything. If something happens to it, I will be buying another one. I find it is easier to read from a kindle than an actual book now.
