Have you taken your guidebooks in electronic form on your e-reader?

Jump to last reply

I've got a Nook Color and my husband has a Kindle Fire. This is the first time since purchasing them that we'll be traveling and need a guidebook (or two) for our trip. I love my Nook for reading while away from home as it eliminates the need to carry lots of books and I've taken it on trips where I didn't need a guidebook, but I am wondering how people like using e-readers for travel guidebooks. I've always thought this would be fabulous because it would eliminate so much weight and bulk, but a friend recently told me she'd found she didn't like using the e-reader for guidebooks while traveling because it made the book so much harder to use.

What has been your experience? Thanks.
