eBook Readers: Choosing the best one!
Before we get to today’s blog topic, I’d like to thank the Jennifer for allowing me the chance to join her today. As some of you might know, All Romance eBooks is sponsoring a Go Green/Read an eBook campaign. As one of their ambassadors, I am here to spread the word about eBooks and how fabulous they are.
As an author who has been in on the eBook revolution since it began in the early 90’s, I found myself fascinated by the idea of books in a portable, paperless format. I’m all for eBooks, and anything that gets people back to reading for entertainment.
There’s only one problem I’ve found and, for me, it’s been a big one. What is the best way to read an eBook? I have to admit that the idea of using my work computer is unattractive. After all, I sit behind the computer all day working on my own projects. When it comes time for pleasure reading, the last thing I want to do is look at the monitor some more! I could print the book—except that some eBooks disable the print function. Printing the book also defeats the purpose of eBooks. It wastes expensive ink and paper, something I’m not inclined to do in the first place. I purchased the book because of its portable format. It’s supposed to be easy and convenient to read. But it’s not! My problem is that I have yet to find the perfect eBook reader.
Therefore I am asking readers this question: What eBook reader do you use, and why? Leave a comment telling us about your favorite method for reading ebooks. Share your knowledge, the ups and downs and how you finally found the perfect e-reader.
Give us the specs and tell us how the device you’ve chosen is the perfect one for reading eBooks. In other words, convince me this is the reader for me!
And since this is an eBook campaign, I’ll be giving away free PDF copies of my gothic novel, The Keeper of Eternity, to any reader who emails me, saying they saw this article at Jennifer’s Random Musings! Send your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
