i now have a Sony T3 to replace my old 350.

I have tried both the original non-retina ipad mini, and a retina ipad Air - both using Marvin, so could adjust brightness as needed.

I prefer eink, to the extent that i will carry both around with me to work and back, and will happily pay for both.

Now, on the other hand, I cannot understand the kind of people who write 'an useless' or 'an hotel'...what is up with them?

They also had Ms. Kercher for 10th Grade Composition?

I still mentally correct homage to "annn Ooohhmaaaajhe" after all these years - you and your slight Quebec accent, Mrs. K!

"An useless" is wrong, but "an hotel" is absolutely correct. You use "an" with words that start with "h" if the first syllable of the word is unstressed.

Seeing the thread of higher resolution and large phablets coming out in 2014, I have come to a conclusion that eReader is so 2011.


Good evening.

I will be your guide tonight as I give you a tour of our Flea Market:

Is this a US/UK difference? Or does it depend on if you pronounce the H in hotel? I typically hear "a hotel" (with the H pronounced) here in the southeastern US.

"A hotel" for me in the Midwest US also, we pronounce the H in hotel.

I think it's much more common in the UK, certainly.

It's 'a hotel' for most of those in the UK, i'd say ( biased obviously), because 'an' sounds wrong precisely because the 'h' is spoken - and any rule that says otherwise is as made up as the one about the split infinitive... Bah, humbug ;-)

The "h" is generally elided when the first syllable is unstressed (ie only sounded very weakly), hence the word is effectively starting with a vowel, so you use "an", not "a". Thus "an hotel" (first syllable unstressed), but "a hospital" (first syllable stressed). It's not a "made up rule" at all, but reflects the way that words are actually spoken. Split infinitive are purely artificial, by comparison.

I would think any author who wrote "a hotel" rather ignorant of English grammar, I'm afraid. It's on the level of not knowing the correct usage of "who" and "whom".

I would hazard a guess that people buy readers to read books. I know I do.

Since you indicate that the use of a reader - for you - occurs in situations that "almost never happen in my life," then I would suggest you avoid them entirely.

As you further state, you are an "indoor person."

My suggestion, based upon your quoted words above, is to simply avoid e-ink readers.

currently if there is a 5 inch front lid ereader that can sync books using Android apps, I will consider buying one.

There are no 5" frontlit eInk devices available. There are 5" LCD Smartphones.

Pick up an eink reader after reading on tablet for a while, and you will be amazed at how light it feel and how much less effort it takes to read on one for a long period of time.

It's "a hotel" here on the East Coast. "An hotel" would be an affectation.
