eInk / LCD Poll -- Now With More Options!

Which type of screen do you use for the majority of your day-to-day reading?

You know the drill for the UNUTTERABLY SILLY POLL.

The majority of my (book) reading is on eInk. I use LCD for when I want to read color graphic novels, but that's pretty much it.

I don't really get "eyestrain" with either, but I prefer the look and feel of eInk and the long battery life is very nice.

I think this poll is fine as is.

I voted eink since I don't read books much on an LCD device.

Can you make it so that we can choose more than one? Right now I'm reading both e-ink & paper, as I am and will be re-reading already established series in preparation for new books.

I was going to vote "this poll needs more options", but it rained last night rendering my clay tablets and papyrus illegible. So, no reading on them today. I just went with both...

I'll ask the mods.

But I think "Both" would work in this case?

Cool eink all day

i use my kindle 3 [eink] for all but what comes up on my computer screen during computer use. several years ago i tried reading fiction on a computer [backlit lcd screen] and gave up before i'd finished a chapter. today i read all day [often] on my k3.

"Both" implies e-ink & LCD, based on your poll question. I don't use LCD (other than the computer). I'll go ahead and vote for e-ink, again.

I voted both, but I really needed another option. I do all my book reading on the Kindle but a lot of article reading (and this forum etc.) on LCD (iPad).

Oh, I'm sorry, I see what you mean. I thought about putting Paper and then decided that way madness lay.

Sorry about that.
