    I’m already following you on Amazon. πŸ˜†

    I don’t have an ereader — I use the program on my laptop. I prefer paper — easier than lugging around the laptop. πŸ˜€

    I read on my corner of the couch with my feet up. Noise around me doesn’t bother me most of the time. My husband, however, has to have complete silence.

    Thanks for the chance!

    Paper. My preferred e-reader is out of commission since Microsoft rendered my Surface Pro unusable with their latest update.
    Anywhere I can recline.
    I prefer quiet when I’m reading. πŸ™‚

    I read mostly in bed, very comfy. Love ebooks but also carry paper. Never know where or what I will be working so either is good. I work special events and books are my downtime.

    Paper is always preferred, I buy paper books, but I also use the library and I do have many good books on my Kindle app on my phone. I like it quiet on my couch. πŸ˜€

    I mostly read e-books but have stacks of paperbacks around the house. I read from my recliner in the living room, usually with music or the t.v. playing softly in the background.

    I will read either paper or e-reader. I prefer quiet when I read and I can literally read anywhere, but my favorite place to read is in bed. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I read both…I love the feel of books(and the smell) but I love the e-reader because I can take it with me plus I have more than one book with me…
    Where do I read…anywhere I can get comfortable and I can do it with or without noise…I tune everything out!!!! πŸ™‚

    I prefer my ereader and bed. I can read with noise going on around me except the tv, if the tv is on, I normally end up watching.

    I read on an e-reader, mostly in my living room chair though it does often show up in my bed, πŸ˜€ and give me quiet please.

    (I can’t believe that I didn’t already follow you on Amazon. That is now fixed!)

    My favorite place to read is in my living room, in my recliner with a cool glass of water at the ready. My favorite type of book is harder to pin down. I love paper. Hard back, trade or mass market, BUT, I also love my Kindle too. It just depends on how I purchased the book. I’m also a fan of audio books too. πŸ™‚

    Good evening Delilah

    I prefer my Kindle and generally read in my la z girl. Also, it doesn’t matter to me if the tv is on or if it’s quite.

    I usually have a paperback with me, so I can read if waiting somewhere. My favorite place would be in bed, but I have been falling asleep with a book in hand.

    I like noise around me, if I need quiet I would visit a library.

    Any type – any time – any where! I just must have a book with me at all times. Kindle on my laptop and phone. Books of all sorts. I even have audible. Never miss an opportunity to read something…even if it’s to pass time in line at the grocery. I might give up paper books if I was not worried about dropping the phone in the bubble bath!
