 I still prefer a printed book but it is very nice to be able connect to my public library on the ipad and download something quickly.

I no longer purchase hard-bound books that I want to keep 'forever'.  Instead, I purchase ebooks on my iPad.  Their so handy there for when I go to the doctor or have other 'time to kill'.

I've had an ipad for a year and find it indespensible. Most of the reading I do is through the tablet, both through the iPad app for books and through the Kindle app. Also I use various apps for recipes and put my ipad on a stand on my kitchen counter while I'm cooking. There is one app I use that allows me to put in my favorite recipes and slowly I'm converting all of my collection of recipes to the ipad. I use it for email, for getting the weather, for finding directions and for playing games. In a lot of ways I prefer it to my desktop computer. It is always somewhere near me and handy to carry on trips.

Hi, my  name is Sharon Kunz and I'm writing an article for a magazine with national distribution about different ways people are using tablet computers. I want to include people of all different ages, but so far only young people are emailing me! If you enjoy reading books (or doing anything else) with a tablet computer, I would love to hear from you. I will then give you more information about the article and I can send you a sample of a piece I did recently for the same publication. Thank you for your time and consideration!
