Re: What book are you all reading?

reading paperback is definitely better but I don't mind kindle. That way I can carry many books with me and read whatever I want.

The best thing is your magazine subscription comes directly to kindle/ipad. I had India Today for a while, then I tried Time, etc. I think ToI was costlier, otherwise you can read full newspaper on your tab.

Sometimes the font is small... sometimes it is big. Adjust this... adjust that... takes the fun out of reading.

Touche. I was just going to say something on the similar lines. Plus the feel of paper and smell of books... sigh. Brings me back in time to summer holidays. Playing with friends morning till afternoon, reading in the afternoon and then back to playing outdoors with friends until my mom came after me with a stick

If you are always so agreeable with saneless, why don't you just marry him?

She would have... but Kalidaans pai is poking from the other side. Now she has 2 not-so-handsome guys... and it is a tough choice

there's this thing called a bookmark just like you do with paperback book, you can put a digital bookmark in every digital reader.

Best ereader these days in Kindle paperlight. The brightness is just right, feels quite a bit like reading a paperback.

Bookmark is when you want to come back to a page after putting it down... nahi ke everytime you turn from landscape to portrait... and portrait to landscape
