    I've only read two so far, though all three of my books sell on Kindle and Nook. I buy best sellers that end up at Dollar Tree in hardcover. You can't beat one dollar. I mostly read articles online.

    How about you? Are you exclusively e-book now?

    37 on my carousel as of now.
    only one I haven't read is The Biology Of Belief; just cant get thru it.
    I've been reading mostly on line stuff as of late.

    Don't think I'll be buying anything but electronic, as I got rid of over 60 hard covers on the last move.

    12. Not exclusive to e-books but I won't buy books anymore unless I have a gift card.

    Zero.
    I love books, and want the real thing in my hands.

    +1 exactly, why anyone just hold a small ebook/nook looking at tiny words for hours is beyond me! I mean, you have your iphone and android or tablet to do that! Another ebook reader lol! I like books old school, I still like to go to Barnes and Noble and those vintage book shops. To each their own I guess.

    I'm about 75% ebooks now. I still read real books, but I like to have at least one ebook going at any given time, so that I can whip out my phone and read if I'm standing in line somewhere, or the like. Plus my basement is almost at saturation for bookshelves. (I actually hauled several tons to the dump - couldn't give them away. (Not really true - hired some kids to do it, since I couldn't do it myself.))

    Also amazon has this fiendish deal going when you discover a new author... the first ebook is $4, but then if you like it, the next ones are $10. In the last 24 hrs, I discovered Scott Shermann's " Kevin Connor Mysteries, and burned through all three of them. Almost as god as sex. icon_razz.gif

    Beats working.

    Same here. I save money by using the library for all fiction. I only buy books that are reference type; cookbooks, etc.

    One useful thing for e-books is the free books; you can load up on a bunch of them before traveling.

    Since I got my tablet in January, I've read 180 ebooks. Amazon loves me. I read while cycling at the gym.

    I have 8 books in my Kindle cue. I have read 5 of them. I don't have a lot of reading for pleasure time at the moment, but I do love the e-book app.

    I've been on e-books for years now. I can't remember the last time I read a paper book.
