I read in bed every night and book lights are too bright for my husband to sleep, so I read on my Kindle a lot then. It's also great for trips. I can take a whole library with me! But, yes, the codex... Real paper you can touch and marginalia. Ah!

I did love NetGalley when I first started using it at the beginning of last year but I struggle so much with reading fiction electronically. I loved the cookbooks and non-fiction titles to dip into but I found I just couldn't curl up and read the fiction in binges like I would a physical copy... I keep trying ever now and then though because there can be some really wonderful books on offer there. I know just what you mean about your hoard!
