Well, we have had polls in the past that mattered a lot less then this one.

That's not an answer, just an observation.

Yep, it is not an answer. But this is MR. Do we need a reason?

I bought two Kindles this year - a Kindle DXG and a Kindle 3 which my wife uses but can only vote once for kindle. Can a moderator add a vote for Kindle, please.

Picked up a Kindle 3 WiFi this week despite my better judgment.

Actually, my initial impressions are quite positive. I can't buy books from Amazon with it at the moment, but my 6" PDFs look far nicer on it than they did on my old Sony. Certainly not perfect, but not bad at all for the price. Now I just need a case for it.

Then go for 'other', Seanette. We can discuss the reasons why (multi-functional, etc) later. Thanks. Neil
A mod may have to adjust my vote. I chose "backlit LED" because one of the listed examples was an iPad and I'm not clear that there's a huge difference between the iTouch and the iPad except for size.

Why's everybody saying they can only select one? I checked two and my vote(s) went through just fine. I guess the problem may be if you clicked one and hit "Vote" you can't go back?

Anyway, I bought a Sony Touch in the Spring and am awaiting the arrival of my Kindle DXG *any minute*.

I plan to use the Sony for Overdrive library books, recipes and knitting patterns (more portable and can take notes on PDF's), and the DX for scientific journal articles, periodicals, and probably most of my Public Domain reading assuming I strongly prefer the display over the Sony.

I enabled 'multiple choices', Maggie. Just checked and, right enough, the poll should allow you to check as many boxes as you like. I can't vote myself to make sure because I've not bought a new device this year, but if the problem does exist, perhaps one of our fine mods would take a look. Cheers. Neil
Thanks, Neil. I should've been clearer. I bought multiple LCD devices, but can check that box only once.

None (No devices) bought this year is not available for me to tick.

I buy things to last, not fad devices.

I plan on using my(purchased last year) EZReader Pocket pro, until it drops dead. I will replace batteries if still reasonably priced (including delivery).

I bought both an iPad and an iPod Touch this year, neither specifically for reading, and I do some reading on my iPod but it is not my primary reader.

Should I check "LCD device" even though the purchase intent was not reading? I didn't even try to read on it until after the iBooks app came out, which was several months after I bought it. I'm thinking that for your poll intent, I should just not vote, since it is not even close to being a dedicated reader for me.
