    Default Which eReader Should I get?

    I am torn... I love real books, but they take up space and I am trying to convert my life from one of objects to one where when the Zombie Apocalypse occurs, I will be royally bored.

    So I need an ereader... but which one?

    I use an iPad. It's a nice multipurpose device. Kindles are good too.

    *sigh* But then I need more objects. The iPad is too big, the iPhone is too small.

    I love my kindle fire HD. I'm not a technology freak by any means, but I have absolutely no remorse about going all the way with the e-reader. I agree, I liked physical books too but figured I would adjust pretty quick and I read so much and so many books at one time that I figure it would make my life easier. (Same as making the transition from CD's to ipod). I was right. It's also a tablet, so you have the web and netflix and all the apps like a less fancy I pad. You may be thinking what I was thinking at first. "But i'm only getting it for the reading". Doesn't matter, I don't like working with my Iphone when i'm out of the house, too small. I'm generally really careful about the purchases I make and am always multiple steps behind the new stuff as I feel that lots of it complicates life more. This has simplified my life greatly. One of my smartest purchases ever given my lifestyle.

    No, you don't. Reading electronic copies rather than paper is commendable and advantageous, but get a netbook or tablet instead. It comes with more functionality. More importantly, it deprives e-book vendors of the ability to pluck volumes off your device without your knowledge/consent. Get books in pdf, and read them on whatever device you like.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    o.O They can do that? Is that even if I use apps on a tablet? Or are you suggesting I find the downloads for the books I want to read?

    1. E-ink will make you blind at a much slower rate, perhaps even at the same rate as "real" books (if you do end up becoming blind from reading).

    2. You can acquire books without vendors collecting data.
