BTT E-volution




BTT asks E-readers like the Kindle and iPad are sweeping the nation ... do you have one? Do you like it? Do you find it changes your reading/buying habits? If you don't have one, do you plan to?

I have the Kindle app and iBooks on my iPad and iPhone, along with many books inside. It is neat to preview or read the first chapters of a book (Amazon calls it "sample"). I still prefer hard copies, ARCs, or paperback. It makes it easier to refer back to previous pages.

However, I like having a Bible or a variety of Bible translations in my iPad while at Bible study or church.

Isn't it great that so many versions of the Bible are available free for download?

My BTT is here.

I love that there are so many free e-books out there. :)

Here’s my Booking Through Thursday post. :)

I don't have an e-Reader, but with everyone gushing about them, I might just have to get one sooner than later.

I have the same problem flipping back to reference earlier pages. Something to explore, I guess.

Here's MY BTT POST and

I'm thinking that most of the ebook readers have the capability to search and find earlier things--even to bookmark them. I've not used that capability, so wouldn't want to swear to it. I love my Nook and also have the Nook app on my Droid...love one handed reading, esp. at lunch ;-) Here's my BTT.

I still prefer the actual book.

While I still prefer a real book in hand, I am secretly wishing for the Nook Tablet for my birthday. I travel a lot and could use something more portable!
