We know that many of you use e-readers and some still use books to read.  How and where do you get your favourite reads??  If you use an e-reader what kind are you using and where do you download most of your reads from??

D and I both use our iPads.  We started off with Kobo (Chapters/Indigo’s version of Kindle in Canada).

    I use my Kindle or Kindle for PC on my lap top or Kindle on my iPad or Kindle on my iPhone

    I have a Kindle keyboard and I absolutely adore it! It goes everywhere with me. So the majority of my books come from Amazon, occasionally I pick up a few from Smashwords.

    I love my IPad! I purchase books on my IBookstore, Nook app, and Kindle app. I like the Kindle app to see what other people highlighted while they read the same books. I never thought I would get over the lost feeling of not having a real book in my hands. But, it’s so much easier to travel with an IPad than several books!

    I use my iPad and iPhone and download from amazon to my kindle app. I have an older kindle as well but haven’t used it as much since I got the iPad. One less thing to carry in my bag!

    Most of mine are on my Kindle from Amazon. Most of my favorites are available only as ebooks or from indie authors whose paperbacks are harder to come by. I still use the public library for the more mainstream books and my book club reads. Some of the more popular ones in the library I can borrow on my Kindle.

  6. I have the Kindle app on my iPad and use it from time to time because I have soo many free books there waiting for me. But I usually read on my iBooks app since that is what I am used for the most part.
    I do go to the library but they don’t always have what I want to read but they have a site where I can look up and see what they have to lend as an ebook or audio book and I do love audio books they make life so much easier. that is if the voice is right for the book . lol

    I use my Kobo Touch and get most books from there if possible. If Kobo doesn’t have something I use Smashwords, or sometimes All Romance eBooks. I also use Amazon (especially for the freebies) if the file is DRM-free so that I can use Calibre to convert to ePub and still read it on my Kobo. I also have the Kindle app on my iPhone so that I can read some from Amazon that are DRM, but haven’t gotten into reading any of those yet.

    I love my Kindle & get most of my books from Amazon. Have Kindle, will travel!

  9. Deb says:

    I mostly read on my Nook but also use my ipad so i can download from Amazon and take advantage of the freebies & specials also use smashwords. I miss holding a real book, but wouldn’t trade in my ereaders for anything

    I have a Nook basic, which I LOVE! I also have the Kindle/4PC app on my PC. I download to there and transfer to my NOOK via Calibre.

    98% of my FREE books I get from Amazon, All Romance E-books (ARE), or (free books for your Kindle). I’ve never had ANY trouble w/ Smashwords (exclusively for Kristen Ashley ~ Yay!) and recommend checking their freebies occasionally, too.

    Some great sites I belong to that make recommendations for me (and thus make the sorting easier) include: Goodreads, Free Romance ibooks, Maryse’s Book Blog, kindled hearts,,, and Totally Booked.
