image

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article called "iPad Reading Apps: Kindle vs. iBooks" which received a lot of reads and comments. And I thank the many people who not only read the article but who took the time to respond.

I am an avid reader. I try to read at least 52 books a year. And up until the fall of 2011, I fought the whole e-book trend. But on September 17, 2011, I received my first e-book reader: a Kindle keyboard. And my conversion from being a print book reader to an e-book reader began.

Secret Pleasures of iReading

The iPhone, iPad, and eBook reader apps have changed the way we read

iPadReadingWhen I left off, Lisbeth Salander was stuck in the hospital, hacking her way into various databases, planning her legal defense, while her only real friend and confidant, Blomquist, was out flirting with a buff aerobics addict who is a member of the Swedish version of the CIA. At least that's where I think I left them when I put down The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, the last book in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series.

Really enjoy reading on iPhone 4

I actually got an iPhone 4, yesterday, a day early due to some lucky mail fluke. Today I tried FaceTime with blogger Todd Bernhard. Todd will probably write about it here and/or in our next issue. I also used the flash in the camera. I liked both features, although both have a ways to go. However, what I was most impressed with based on what I will get the most use of is the ebook reading experience.
