    Hi all,

    I have iPad and I am wondering if it worth getting kindle just for reading book.

    Granted kindle is lighter and easier to 'carry' around.

    Sometime I do not feel 'safe' reading books on iPad especially when I am on my own.

    Anyone here own both? or is there any better e-reader out there?

    I have both and always read on the ipad BUT it does interrupt me with email, draw something requests and so on. REALLY I should use the kindle.

    A lot friends have both and would only use the kindle for reading. They say its easier on the eyes, lighter and so on.

    I have the kindle with the keyboard. Never tried the touch.

    When it comes to reading, I think the kindle is the way to go. I like the look of the paperback presentation. I don't like reading on regular screens. But hey, that's me.

    I've just upgraded from a kindle with the keyboard to the touch, I LOVE IT:)

    I have both and the reason I bought a kindle for reading is that it's smaller and a lot easier to carry around. I read a lot so it was running the battery down very quickly on my iPad/iPhone.

    My mother says the same thing that's why she has the kindle as well as the ipad. Funnily enough since I tend to use the kindle late at night, I ALWAYS have the kindle led light on and its battery lasts hardly any time at all
