I'm just curious-- The iPad is a great multifunctional device, and I use it all the time. I've just run across a lot of people lately who have either been leaving their e-readers at home or selling them and using the iPad alone. The iPad is a decent alternative for small amounts of time, and I actually take my iPad to book club since it's quicker and easier to find specific pages in a book for discussion purposes than on my Nook. But due to the size, weight, and glare (not to mention the brightness of the LCD which hurts my eyes after a while), I could not imagine sitting down and spending hours reading a book on it day after day. So basically, I'm wondering if any heavy hardcore readers use the iPad as their primary reading device. As in, at least one novel a week. Most people I come across who say the iPad is an equivalent reading device only read sporadically at most.
