From my post "America's Most Literate Cities":
A few years ago, I started reading less because books are so gosh darn expensive, so I turned to online media because it was free. To ammend this, a few months ago I bought an e-reader because books at the time were a fraction of the cost of the bookstore listed price. I had my device paid off after purchasing ten books, which would have cost me almost double in the bookstore. I actually found myself reading more books with my e-reader than I ever have before. Maybe if these devices become more affordable, we could see an increase in literacy...
How many of you use an e-reader? I bought an iPad primarily for the Kindle app because I found myself reading fewer books in exchange for shorter online pieces. I missed the sense of immersion you get in longer pieces and the app on my iPhone made it too difficult to read easily. I love it and use it every day now - and I've finished 4 books so far this year already!
