As per title what are you using? I have a BeBook Neo and a Kindle Keyboard (3rd generation Kindle).

I hate touch screens (very large fingers) - hence The Kindle Keyboard. The BeBook is not only an ereader but also has an SD card slot and will play back MP3s etc. to headphones so I can have ebooks, audio books and music all in one unit with eink screen for use even in bright sunlight.

I have a Kindle but no longer use it. I've gone back to books as I've found it preferable to actually turn a paper page.

Hate e-readers. I see the point but it's nothing like turning over a physical page... Sort of like cybers_x vs real s_x - not that I ever did the former!

I have one of the earlier Kindles without backlighting.

I like it because it’s just like reading a normal book (no eye strain) and takes up much less space! Easy to slip in your bag to take away on holiday etc.

My GF uses her phone, no choice really as her ebooks come from Google Play and you must use the Play Bookstore's built in reader. This is the same with Play Music, which is why I don't use Play Music at all, if I purchase music it should be my choice what Media player I use to play it back, Sony's music player app is one of my faves, though recently I have been using the Xiaomi one.

Not sure if this qualifies for an eReader, but I use Adobe Digital Edition and Kindle for PC.
I don't like to hold books or tablets in my hands. Paper books are so heavy sometimes and searching for text is so much easier using a PC. Also play with the font size zoom in and zoom out. The monitor screen is large and I have less stress on my eyes.
