e-Reader polls revisited!

Nine months ago, in the midst of weighing the pros and cons of self-publishing, I asked you to vote in some polls on e-readers. At that time, I did not own an e-reader, but later received a Kindle as a gift. I imagine some of you have since either acquired one or changed your thoughts on them, so I thought it appropriate to revisit three of those polls and to add a new one.

I’ve used the generic terms e-reader and e-books in these poll questions.

  • If you vote Other in Poll #2, please explain under Comments.
  • If you do not yet own an e-reader, but use a reader app, please respond in Poll #3. Examples of reader apps are Kindle or Nook for PC or Mac, and Stanza for iPhone.

Absentee votes? May I ask those of you who prefer to read my posts “secretly” to please participate? Come to the blog and vote. I promise, you will remain anonymous.

Polls will close on 18 July, 2011

Thank you for participating. If I could ask one more favor, would you please re-tweet this post? More votes result in a better research sample.

Please feel free to discuss these polls in the comments section.

  1. My husband bought me a Nook for my birthday this year. Our bookshelves were overflowing and an e-reader seemed cheaper than moving! I love it! I’m an instant gratification kind of girl and being able to purchase a book I’ve been waiting for at one minute after midnight on the day it comes out has been fabulous. It’s also fits easily in my purse and it’s far better in bed than a traditional book—I didn’t intend for that to sound dirty! 🙂


    1. Did you get the Nook color, savesprinkles? I can already see that the poll results this year are quite different from last year. So many more people have e-readers now.

      Far better in bed, huh? *lol* 😀


  2. I finally got around to voting. I have an app on my Iphone but I hate reading on it. Sometimes I have no choice. I will buy a Kindle after I’ve jumped over this huge unemployment hurdle. One thing at a time.


    1. Sorry to hear about your hurdle, Dayner. I still wouldn’t have a Kindle were it not a gift. Yes, reading on the iPhone is fine in a pinch, but I wouldn’t want to read a whole novel on one.
