The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.


Question:

Do you own more than one eBook reader?

(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)  


Answer:

I read on my iPad and I do actually have 2 of them. One has a matte screen protector that I use for Instagram photos. That type of protector stops the iPad from just reflecting back light from flash or just within the environment. That iPad also is on my cell phone account, so I take it with me on trips to be sure I always have internet.

NetGalley actually posted a blog post about taking photos with ereaders yesterday and I thought I would share it : https://bookish.netgalley.com/bookish-lifestyle/01/2021/tips-ereader-bookstagram-photos/

My newer iPad, is practically attached to my hand. I do everything on it and it rarely is somewhere where I can’t just reach over and grab it.

How about you? Do you have more than 1 ereader?

  1. I’ve just got the one, which also is never far from me. It goes most places I do apart from work because I definitely don’t get a chance to read it there. I don’t know if I could cope with different books on different devices though. I’d definitely get confused 😂

    1. Oh, I agree. My iPads sync, so I can pick up where I leave off on the other. And I rarely read more than one book at a time. I’d rather spend the time getting further in one book than dividing my time between multiple books.

  2. I only got my Kindle that I use. I do have other readers in home but I don’t use them. One belonged to my mother(-in-law) who sadly died a few years ago to cancer, so that one is a memento of her (she loved reading as much as I did and we shared books). The other I believe I have somewhere is my old reader which isn’t working well so I should get rid of it, but I haven’t done it yet.

    1. What a lovely remembrance ❤️. I’m sure it makes you smile whenever you look at it, thinking back to your conversations about books you shared.

      1. It does, well, at least now after it being a few years. In the beginning when she just died and when I just got the ereader I had to hide it because it would make me cry. Now it still makes me sad, but also smile. Thinking back to those talks, seeing what books she was reading.

  3. Don´t like the idea of being constantly glued to some electronic device while on the move. Reminds me too much of this dystopian scene in one of those Terminator movies just before The Machine took it over from humankind. Seems that some people even can´t find their way around anymore without Android guidance.

    1. My husband fusses at me when I walk and look at an electronic device at the same time. He says I’m too much of a hazard to others as well as myself. Lol. And that’s probably true. You know, Insee aspects of the Terminator in a lot of things. It’s pretty scary.

  4. I have a Nook and a Kindle. Hubby surprised me with the Nook years ago when I wasn’t sure how I felt about ereaders (what was I thinking?). A couple years later, I got the Kindle, and I still use both. He’s not much of a reader, but has both the apps on his ipad. You’ll rarely find me without one of them in reach.

    1. I know. I can’t ever imagine saying that I don’t like eReaders and that I could only read physical copies of books. Craziness!

  5. Guilty. I started with the original Kindle, then went to a Fire (which I still have but can’t revive because of a dead battery). I have an iPad which I used to read on, then I switched to a Kindle Paperwhite. I still use that, but my main e-reader is a waterproof Kindle Paperwhite which I bought last year because I like to read on a pool raft during the summer months 🙂

    1. That’s a good idea. I should look into that. I always used to read in the tub but the last thing I want to do is take my iPad anywhere near the tub and I could also use it at the beach and pool.

  6. I have a Kindle paper white that I only use when I’m on a long trip without power source (airline…think a trip to Australia) or when I had jury duty and iPads weren’t allowed. Otherwise, I use my iPad Air for reading. I have an iPad Pro for checking emails, blog hopping and posts, and all things Goodreads. What in the world did I do before these devices???

    Like you, my devices are always within arm’s reach😏

    1. I wonder that sometimes too. They have become such an integral part of everyday life that it is hard to imagine what we did before we had them.

  7. I always wonder how people take iPad book photos without the glare! OMG! Why do I feel like I should had known this lol.

    I have my iPad, my iPhone, and 3 Kindles that I actually use. I had 4 but my kid took the last one and turned it into HERs. She’s learned colors, shapes and animals so I guess I can’t be mad lol.

    1. Wow, that’s a lot. I guess your munchkin decided you could spare one 😊
      And, yes, I was determined to be able to take iPad photos so I looked it up. You can also take photos with the iPad flat, so that you can put the digital cover over the iPad photo version if need be.
