I saw this poll somewhere else and thought it could be interesting to see where we all get our e-books from?

The poll is at
and also at bottom of main group page. Please do vote and then perhaps tell us why you get them where you do in this thread.

I must admit I get the vast majority of my e-books from Amazon. The reasons are they are pretty much reasonably priced on the majority of books. I also have a kindle tablet so it is easy to connect straight in and download.

I do also get some from netgalley when they ok me to pre-read a new release.

I would say that I probably get 50/50 ebooks and printed books.

Emma | 112 comments I mainly get mine from Amazon and I use Netgalley every now and then. I'm rarely able to buy print books as I don't have space for them

Mary (broomemarygmailcom) Bookbub--large variety including bestsellers for free or up to about $4.00/

And, David, I probably read about 3/4th as big print hardback books. My local library had a patron who left them $500 per month to buy Large Print only! It is about 7 years and the money keeps coming. :)

Kim (kimsbooklists) I buy quite a few on Amazon and am checking out the daily deals when I can. I'm in the states and we have a program through our local library that uses the Overdrive app. I check out many ebooks through the app, both Kindle books and audio books.

Beth Stewart | 598 comments I joined our library to get access to e-books and audio books, only to discover that it is an Ontario-wide consortium that the library is part of ...... So the wait lists are incredible because they only have one license per book usually.

Beth Stewart | 598 comments AND... I am having troubles with books not downloading or downloading corrupted files. Not impressed with the app the libraries are using

I must admit I have never tried our library for e-books.

message 10: by Beth (new)

Beth Stewart | 598 comments The trouble with our library system is that they never have the new books and, with the e-books and audio's, I find there is invariably 7-10 people waiting for the one copy the library consortium has for all of Ontario.

Perhaps Your system might be better.
