I have an older Kindle (Kindle Touch I think, before the built in back light but after the keypad) that is very handy for reading obscure or public domain titles from the 18th and 19th centuries. They are typically way too hard to find in print anymore or very expensive, so I use the Kindle for those. Outside of that I still prefer the printed word on paper.
I have an old kindle (with the keypad), but I haven't used it in an age. The main problem being that I only find books I want to read by actually going into book shops, charity shops, and the like, and reading the blurb.

I've read fanfiction on my old laptop and news, I haven't read a novel on the laptop. I prefer an old fashion book, I can read it anywhere and in any position that I'm comfortable with plus regular books don't strain my eyes. When I read from a screen, eventually it looks like the letters are pulsating.

I resisted the idea of reading e-books for the longest time, but now I probably read on my tablet more often than paper books. The convenience when traveling (which I do often) is great, and I can download books from the library in an instant from anywhere in the world.
The only place that I can find real books near me is the local thrift store. They costs about 2.00 and sometimes I hit a jackpot on half price day. Otherwise, I use the Kindle which I've gotten use to.
