"After two and a half degrees in literature and my decision not to pursue teaching college, I swore that I'd never read a book because I had to or toward some goal or another. I've mostly kept to this promise, minus various contests I've judged, etc., and it's been a good thing. "

"I also read, and enjoyed, "Upstairs at the White House" by J.B. West (followed the Kindle Deal of the Day link from here). I'd be interested in what other White House themed books you read. I've read an amazing number of books this year, several of them were huge, but my reason for reading them isn't one I'd recommend to anyone. I reread all the Harry Potter books (most of them only took me 1 or ..."

"This has been my goal for several years when, like you, I found I wasn't enjoying my books – they were just part of a goal. I'm happier and I've read some incredible books, and some really horrid books too. The horrid books convinced me to follow Nancy Pearl's “rule of fifty". Made a huge difference. "

"I love my Paperwhite, and the case it lives in, but it has software issues, so I purchased a Voyage which is my favorite. However I hate the cases available - I find them very uncomfortable. Still, I love eink readers. Great for my arthritic hands that hurt when holding a book. "

"I'm enjoying Lollipop on my Nexus 7. It skipped 5.0.0 and went right to 5.0.1, so I guess they stopped the rollout while they patched. So far I've noticed only a couple of problems. I can't seem to figure out how to get face-unlock to work right, and I can't get into wifi settings from the pulldown; I have to go into Settings and then tap the wifi icon. Other than that, seems to work great ..."

"An author very visibly giving money to bookstores? Patterson is one smart guy. We can be certain his books will move to eye-level and to a display near the front of many bookstores, even those who don't get his money. But calling on Obama to carry a book about in public puts Patterson years behind the times. The luster has worn off that particular impulse purchase. "Hope and change" has become "How long until he ..."

"I'm agnostic about platform, but currently am reading on a Voyage. However, I am passionate about ink, including both real ink and e-ink, and will never give it up. I absolutely HATE reading backlit text for any amount of time. I have Kindle, Nook, and Kobo on my phone and tablet, but use them very little. My e-ink reader gets 2/3 of my purchases, but I still read a fair amount of paper material. "

"Kindle Fire HD 7. I've looked long and hard at the Voyage and bought it as a gift for a family member. It's a great little device, but I still like my fire for the versatility. With the overdrive app I have access both to my local library ebook collection and to other epub/adobe ebook collections such as 3m and openlibrary. Add in the other things it can do - ..."

"Matt, thanks for your polite comments. To reiterate: I updated. It worked for me. This is an article about *my* experience. Worse experiences *are* referenced in it. What else is there to say? "

"Still rocking a Sony Reader (Daily Edition), but may be tempted to try the Onyx Boox line sometime soon. Similar to what others have said, I prefer the eInk screen for extended reading sessions, and because e-books in general have fairly stable system requirements, I can get a lot of mileage out of one device!

"I still read on my Kindle keyboard mostly, around 90% of all the books, then the iPad 3 with 8%, and just one paper book making it 2%. That from 53 books I've read in 2014. "

"I use an old iPod a friend gave me. Lightweight, backlit. Screen is small, but that doesn't matter. I am so nearsighted that I read it (at the smallest font setting) with my glasses off, held two inches from my nose. I sideload via Dropbox. "
