I found this tag at Misty@mistybookspace blog and I quickly decided that I would do it. I am a big Kindle user and I read a lot of e-books which makes me a perfect candidate for this tag 😛
I am not sure who the original creator of this fun tag, but I will give it a go anyway 🙂
Without further ado, let’s dive into the questions!
What support do you use to read your e-books? An e-reader, a tablet, or the PC?
A little bit of everything. I have the very first model of Kindle Paperwhite which came out in 2012, a Kindle Fire which turned out to be a bit too slow for me and which I no longer use, I have a tablet (Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 with an 8 inch screen) which my dear friend Nel@Reactionary Tales personally recommended, and last but not least I read on my PC (I downloaded a Kindle app for Windows PC).
I used to read on my iPhone, but ever since I got my tablet I stopped reading on my phone because the screen is a bit too small for reading and I have to turn pages like every 30 seconds which is quite cumbersome for me. Now you know what a lazy bones I am lol
I mostly read e-books on my tablet, but I read on my PC during lunch time at work.
How many e-books have you read since you started the new “digital fashion”?
Geez, I honestly have no idea, I haven’t kept track of the formats of my read books, but let me count them real quick.
(10 minutes later)
Okay, I have read 152 e-books so far.
What is the language of your ebooks?
English. I read only in English.
Buy them or take advantage of free promotions and books?
I mostly buy them because living in Japan makes it a bit hard to join giveaways. But if they are available internationally, I will definitely take chances on them. Or, I would volunteer an honest review in exchange for a copy.
Do you enjoy reading classics or new authors?
I am Japanese and English is my second language, so Classics are always a bit intimidating to tackle because of the old style English.
That said though, I went on a huge Classic book buying last April and have read some of them and I think I got used to reading them a teeny bit now.
Likewise, trying new authors makes me a bit hesitant because I have no idea what to expect, like, the writing style and everything, but I am willing to give as many books/authors a try as possible 🙂
So, I think I enjoy reading both Classics and new authors.
↑ These are what I downloaded the other day… hahaha! (They are all free though!)
How many e-books do you have?
Oh, no. I need to count them again… oh, wait. (logging on to ‘My Kindle’) I’ve got 320 books including the books that I have already read! 🙂
(Holy cow, that’s way more than I thought… lol)
What is your biggest supplier of ebooks?
Now this is an easy question. Amazon Japan!
Did you completely adhere to the Digital Reading or do you still live in the Age of the Physical Book?
I love them both. but given a choice and if storage space were no object, I would definitely prefer physical books. They both have pros and cons, for instance, I think e-books are great in terms of not having to worry about damaging my books inadvertently, but I wouldn’t trade anything for the feels of a book in my hand and the sound of rustling paper when turning pages 🙂
As I am not tagged by anyone, so I will leave it to you readers to decide whether to do this tag or not. If you haven’t done this and are interested in doing this, feel free to play along! 😀
That’s it for today.
