First off: if you are planing on reading this novel, I suggest you don't judge the book by its cover or Prologue (as of yet). Both were deterring for me, but because I am writing a review on the book, I am chugging along. Once I got threw the first few pages of chapter 1, my interest had been piqued and I was starting to connect with the main character, Sonora.
Next on the agenda: E-reader Vs. Book...
Another blogger was talking earlier in the week about reading what you have. I wanted to comment further on that subject. I have an over-stuffed bookshelf, most of which I have actually read... well maybe 70%... any way, what I wanted to see from others is: I don't own an electronic reading-device such as a Kindle or Nook. Because of my dyslexia, it seems harder for me to read on computers than on paper. In my dyslexic classes in middle school, we were taught that if we found ourselves skipping lines or not actually listening to ourselves as we read, we should cover the page with colored cellophane (yellow and pink work best)... you can't do that with an e-reader, well you can but it would be hard to manage. Personally, I don't use any colored cellophane to help me, but I still can't seem to find a comfort level with the e-readers. Maybe if I could get one with the dyslexic font I read about a while back.
How do you read? Do you use an e-reader or do you prefer the physical pages in your fingers? Why do you prefer it that way?
And the BIG question... if there are any other dyslexics out there, do you currently read with an e-reader? How well do you say you read compared to the physical book? Would you use an e-reader if they offered dyslexic friendly fonts?
