I just prefer the simplicity of the basic functions of e-readers like my Kindle 4. And obviously, reading e-books on my computer isn't my first choice, but I just hope that standalone e-ink readers still remain over the years.
I've not yet had much experience with tablets, except what I've tried in store demos, and I don't think I'm the target demographic for them. They don't appeal very much to me, for whatever reasons. (I guess it's the touch screen functions)
I don't mind doing some
reading on my netbook. I am typing this post right now on it, but it wouldn't be my first choice unless like I said, standalone e-ink readers became a thing of the past, a "former trend". I guess the actual possibility is a bit of a stretch, but I do hope the "basics" remain, to make e-reading accessible for all people.
