I have an ereader and ebooks to read on it. I've had it over a year but I still haven't done anything with it other than start it up. I like reading in bed at night. In the day, if I read, I like the fiction book I can dump into my purse or the non-fiction I carry around to study when I stop in at the coffee shop. I just don't make plans that include the ereader.
