    I'm hooked on the John Grisham novels.. January 15th my Kindle will receive a book about Robert E. Lee's father, Lighthorse Harry Lee hero of the Revolutionary War. I am a Civil War Buff and enjoy books about that period.

    Grisham is great! My wife reads on Kindle whenever we drive somewhere; that alleviates her anxiety over my driving habits!

    Most every night, and while in waiting rooms or in restaurants, sometimes, plus I often used Kindle books in research for work. For the past year or more, I have been reading either free Boy Scout novels from the early 1900s or memoirs from a slew of unremarkable people about growing up wherever it was that they grew up.

    I love reading on my Kindle Fire ! Even though it can also be used for internet searches, just like a lager tablet, or a laptop; I really do. Not do anything with my Kindle except for reading books on it.
    I belong to bookbub.com and also bookgorilla.com, so there almost always have free books from Amazon that I get, or at least at a big discount.
    I also have Amazon First Reads, and every month they give you a choice of several books, and you can choose one for free. This month, they are giving away two free books, so that is even better !

    I read a variety of books, sometimes several at once, depending on what I feel like reading at the time. I have also been getting the free knitting and crochet books from Amazon , and that is much easier than having the regular knitting books, and they don’t get lost as easily.

    I've got three books going at the moment, but none on the kindle. I read a lot on my kindle, especially the ones that don't take a lot of thought, but I have no kindle books going at the moment.

    Love the Kindle, usually read biographies and true stories
    Usually light hearted, but this time I've ordered a true, grim story so also got comic quotes on the go as well :p

    I have a Kindle..I have about 7 books on there, but I only ever use the kindle when I'm travelling or waiting at appointments..

    I much prefer the feel of a Real Hardback book
