    A “touch-screen reader”? What’s that?

    Right, why would a plugger be reading from a touch-screen reader ?

    Probly a present from his grandson after he couldn’t figure out how to turn on the computer he got last Christmas…

    I don’t use one of those electronic readers; I prefer good old fashioned books!

    This is true! A dry finger acts like a glove sometimes and has not enough of the body’s electric current flowing for the screen to react to touch. A plugger knows moisture is a good electric conductor.

    I sometimes forget and try ‘turning’ pages!

    I agree with fierorose – I did the same thing, when I first got my Nook.

    I have caught myself brushing away eraser bits after ‘erasing’ something on a graphics tablet

    I do too. But the two advantages of it.
    1. The e-reader like NookBook take up less space than a room full of books
    2. If there was a fire. Easier to save the ebook as compared to that number of paper and ink books. Which would be fuel for that fire.

    I still prefer good old fashioned books too, but my son gave me an e-reader for Christmas, so I use it as well. He loads books I can’t get or don’t want to wait for at the library onto it.

    I am a plugger. However, I do not wet my finger to “turn a page” on my e-reader.

    I don’t wet my finger to turn a page on the e-reader. I don’t know how to use it in the first place.

    A Plugger with an e-reader? What happened to books?

    As a gamer and an aspiring novelist. I read books to relieve the stress from looking at a screen all day.
