I have not actually used any of the ereaders myself – you know, the Nook, Kindle, etc. Have you? What are the pros and cons of these devices with regards to crochet? Are they good for reading patterns from? Are they suitable for reading a crochet magazine or crochet book like a stitch encyclopedia? Is the picture crisper in black and white or does it work equally well with color? Is it worth the investment for someone whose main use would be for crochet related reading?
I’ve read the pros and cons for using ereaders for other uses – but I’m mostly interested in these devices as they relate to my primary intended use – crochet. Do they add anything to the process of following a pattern? Do they detract from that?
I feel sure that many of my readers use these devices. I’d love to hear from well informed readers who use their devices for crochet as well as any other purpose. Please take the time to add specifics, links, pros and cons, and any other information you think will assist others (me!) in determining if an ereader is a good investment for crochet purposes -and even which device is the best for this purpose. Thanks in advance for sharing your wisdom!
