I enjoy reading & read 4-5 hours almost every day except Wednesday & Sunday -- the days when my adult children visit to play RPGs with me.

I tried reading books on my PC -- buy/download from HERE and read via Adobe. However, I did not at all enjoy extensive reading via computer monitor. So I now read mostly ebooks via Amazon's Kindle or Barnes & Noble's Nook.

I give preference to the Nook because, thanks to Amazon, Barnes & Noble (B&N) is THE last major seller of print books via brick & mortar stores. B&N still has stores in just about every major city. I MUCH prefer print books over digital -- even though I now read digital almost exclusively.

Which is better -- Nook or Kindle? I haven't yet been able to decide. Have you?

What's my favorite type of fiction? Fantasy. What's yours?

My favorite author of fantasy? L.E. Modesitt Jr. Your favorite author?

I prefer books myself but, nowadays, I am rarely able to leave my home to visit B&N.
You might wanna check this other thread if you like books as it got some good recommendations also included with their ISBN numbers. Smart gift/present now for Christmas. (y)

I'm with those who retain a preference for books. I do have an e-reader, a quite old Bookeen Cybook Odyssey, it has no illuminated screen. I like this fact as it is not yet another bright screen that I have to look at after spending the working day doing a lot of that. I tend to use it when traveling, the portability of carrying a library of ebooks around unsurprisingly wins out over the printed format.

I like to read old school books.
Interesting! Have you read the McGuffey Readers -- classic school books of yore. They are still bing printed but the older ones are "collectibles" so -- if you have any -- hang on to them so that your great-grandkids can turn a handsome profit.

@Digmor Crusher -- the presently active volcanos (Moana Lua & Kilauea) are on the big island of Hawaii. I am on Oahu. Unlike volcanos elsewhere, Hawaii's are non-violent/friendly. You can actually get quite close to Kilauea's caldera. Watching lava flow when it reaches the ocean is quite spectacular.
