How do you prefer to read books?

How often do you read?

Authors, would you like to know your readers’ habits?

Readers, would you please participate in a quick survey?

I’ll leave the survey up indefinitely, so anyone who finds it can take it. Just look at the top of my blog anytime you wish to find it (look for the Surveys button).

Here are the original survey questions:

You’ll see the results after you answer each question. Select the best answer.

Please take the survey.

And tell your friends.

And spread the word.

Authors everywhere will LOVE you for it. πŸ™‚

After you vote, you can even share a specific question with Facebook and Twitter. Or you can share the post itself (with all questions included).

  1. Just for the sake of information: I have a Nook, which I like, but I prefer paperbacks. However, I use the Nook at the gym, and in that setting, I definitely prefer an e-reader. I’ve also noticed that I almost NEVER finish a Kindle book, because I hate reading on my computer, but don’t have a device for Kindle. All I have is an older model i-Phone, and that’s just way too tiny for serious reading. It has nothing to do with not wanting to finish the book, but I’m just not as inclined to “eat it up” if I’m reading off a computer screen.

  2. I despise reading books on any screen of any kind. I find it distracting. I like having a physical book in my hands and I prefer paperbacks but if the book I want is only available in hardcover then I will still get the hardcover.

  3. Great survey Chris, I’m an avid reader on both my very old style kindle and paperback, I like to mix them up, I read way over 5 books a month because I love reading, I’m a big supporter of the indies, self-published and small publishing houses.

  4. I read books on my Paperwhite, but I also read hard and softcover books. It depends where I am, my schedule, etc. If I’m very busy, for example, I don’t take out library books, but when I have more time to read, then I do. So I couldn’t answer that question.
    Also, my children are grown, so I didn’t answer that question either. πŸ™‚

  5. Thanks for some interesting insight. Lots of readers out there, but not many using Kindle Unlimited. No surprises with the ebook market leader. I look forward to hearing about the final stats.

  6. I find it VERY HARD to read e-books, I do not possess an Ipad or similar devices, I always prefer paperback and I really get dissapointed when someone I really want to read only offers an e-book option for purchasing.

  8. Chris, great survey! I’m a paperback reader and have just started reading Indie authors (blog friends). A physical book is worth the purchase…and a bookcase full of books is a beautiful sight! Christine

    • Unfortunately, the survey only offered the opportunity for a best answer; I regret not having the option to select multiple choices. Thank you for clarifying in the comments. That’s the next best thing. πŸ™‚
