Our recent move has offered some insight into my preferred reading mode. The advent of the Baen Free Library got me reading ebooks. The recent gift of a Sony Touch has moved me from reading ebooks at my desk at lunch to using ebooks anywhere I want to read. I even plan on taking the ereader deer hunting this year. But I digress as I so often do.
When we listed our house at the beginning of August my wife and I packed my large collection of hardcovers and and paperbacks into boxes and stored them in order to make the house look less cluttered. Two or three thousand books even neatly stored will make a house look cluttered up apparently. So for the last seven or eight weeks I've been reading exclusively using my ereader.
With the recent purchase of Out of the Dark by David Weber I've discovered that I prefer to read using the ereader over reading a physical book. So the next time someone suggests that reading a physical book is a superior experience to using a device I'm going to politely suggest that one needs to use an ereader exclusively for a couple of months before categorically stating that the physical book is a superior experience.
