What’s Your Preferred eBook Experience?

By  |  3 Comments

eBooks and eReaders are big deals these days and about to become a bigger deal with the Kindle Fire and the Nook Color 2 going head to head in mid-November. And don’t forget Amazon has a range of devices to offer.

While we’ve been able to read eBooks on digital devices for quite some time now, I believe it can be argued that Amazon’s first Kindle kicked things into a higher gear and turned the market and all of its facets on its ear.

Competition is intense. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google, and Apple, all want you to shop their stores. With the exception of Apple’s iBooks, you can pick your poison on just about any device out there and have your books move with you from device to device.

I’ve got accounts with all the major services and Apps to use books on the devices I tote, but I keep coming back to Amazon’s Kindle and its Kindle Reader software as my preference.

But what about you? Which store and which platform do you prefer? We’d love to know your thoughts in the poll below or in comments. And if you prefer the dead tree approach let us know that too.

    I’m sorry but if you prefer an ebook reader without an e-ink display, you don’t actually want an e-book reader.  You want a tablet that also has an e-book app.  Don’t buy an iPad and tell yourself the main reason you bought is to read books.

    Owning both a Kindle and Nook color, the kindle is far and away a better e-book reading device. No question.
