Filed under: digital readers,digital words,printed words,publishing,survey — gator1965 @ 10:36 pm

Hi all,

Today I am conducting a survey about readers’ preferences regarding in which format they most enjoy reading: printed word or digital.

So, I would like to invite all who visit this blog to click on the “comments” link at the bottom of this post and answer the one simple question: “Do you prefer to read your entertainment or casual reading in a printed word or digital (‘readers’ such as Kindle) format ? I thank all who participate.


  1. I still like to curl up with a good printed word book…You know, one that I can still turn down the pages to mark my place…

  3. Oh yes you do, Jeanne! Just say that in the comments section…Just because I didn't address the audio media version doesn't mean you can't bring it up. But also do answer the question as if you only had the two choices I gave. And you HAVE used digital, as anything you read on the computer is digital…Imagine reading an entire book on the computer screen…Johnny

  4. Jeanne Scott said: Ok, if you insist!!! The printed word will always appeal to me more because of a 72 year love affair wherein those precious items opened up innumerable adventures for me. I carried and read them everywhere – even took them to bed with a flashlight and read under the covers when I was supposed to be sleeping. Digitals have their place, but not in my heart.
