Change And The Books You Read

I got to thinking about our reading habits and decided to put up a poll on Spec Faith to learn where readers are getting their books these days. The thing is, I really want to know more. I want to know how much readers think their book-buying habits have changed and what has affected them most.

Hence, I decided a poll here is in order too. It’s not a scientific study or anything, but it’s representative — especially so if a good number of people participate. Please feel free to share this post liberally. I’ll keep the poll open for a month, as I’m doing at Spec Faith. You can also select up to three options if they apply.

  1. As a poor person my Kindle is a real treasure, I can get books free or at a lower price, and I don’t have to figure out where to store them. I do miss having local bookstores to browse through to find new authors I like, though.

  2. I don’t have time to read as many books as I used to, even three years ago. This is both a good and a bad thing– Good, because I had all that time because I wasn’t well enough to do much of anything else, and bad, because there are so many many books I would love to read now, and–no time! 😉

  3. Nissa, I’m with you. I live in a small apartment with limited shelf space. I have books everywhere, and I’m glad for it, but the Kindle allows me to read many more I couldn’t otherwise afford and/or wouldn’t have anywhere to put. On the down sided, I’ve donated a lot of books to my church library, and the Kindle books, alas, don’t get any further distribution.
