With the trend of ebooks now increasing compared to physical hardbacks and paperbacks I am just wondering how many people on here read books on electronic devices such as Apple iBooks, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook etc.

How much would you pay for sikhi related books assuming that any proceeds from the books will go back into making more similar products and not for personal benefits.

Please complete the poll.

I've tried but I find it very difficult to focus on an e-book. I haven't got a Kindle or anything like that so I only view ebooks on a computer screen. I'm afraid the printed word on paper will still be my first port of call. :biggrin2:

I too find it hard to concentrate on PC's screens, but kindles or proper ebooks readers are very different. I am not refering to pdf's, but proper ebooks where you can cutomize things like font type, size layout to suit you.

Apple iBooks and Kindle is the best way. I wouldn't mind reading on iBooks and my Kindle. As when I travel I just read news from the News apps on the AppStore, and it's nothing to progress your lives. But I like reading something new and interesting. So I would really love anything Sikhi on the iBooks section and Kindle. With the Apple iBooks, if i'm not wrong, there's no Sikhi books on there. :(

So the iBooks should be a priority. :)

what's the difference between the newest (black and white) kindle vs the newest sony ebook reader? i've tried the older gen models of both and felt that the sony dominated. but now i'm not too happy with the newest sony's pdf handling capability. and a lot of sikhi ebooks are in pdf format...

Personally I use the iPad/ iPod for reading Gurmat ebooks. I do prefer the actual paper feel and texture but when I 'm away from home it is not always possible to carry books around. Generally speaking I'm one of those who are attracted by freebies such as ebooks and Apps. I do like to make a donation to the producer after installing the Apps or books. If you are embarking on a project I feel that if you were to make a freebie that would attract more attention and subsequent donations , just an opinion.

    • ।ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖ਼ਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫ਼ਤਹਿ।  Please read this article by Bhai Manvir singh ji. Very insightful and clears up a lot of confusion.  http://manvirsingh.blogspot.com/2015/11/different-views-on-meat-reflections-on.html?m=1 ਜਉ ਸਭ ਮਹਿ ਏਕੁ ਖੁਦਾਇ ਕਹਤ ਹਉ ਤਉ ਕਿਉ ਮੁਰਗੀ ਮਾਰੈ ||੧||
      “You say that the One Lord is in all, so why do you kill chickens? ||1||” (Prabhaatee Kabeer Ji, Ang 1350) Hukamnama of Guru Hargobind Ji found at Sri Harmandir Sahib, Patna Sahib (published in Hukamname, edited by Gandha Singh), which states:
    • @jkvlondon point taken. I can imagine that tbh. I've already conceded that in hindsight it was a silly thing to do, and I concede again that if I was there actually witnessing it, it most likely would be a different story. Tbh I have seen some cringe or super cheesy sh!t at Amritdhari Doli's. Though not like this. There will always remain a formality between them. I was referring particularly to the fake@ss things - the munde wale taking advantage of the girls side which still goes on albeit not as it did in the days of old. Even the seemingly strong minded folks back down when it comes to their kurms highly unreasonable behaviour. All I'm saying is that ik duje naal pyaar naal milna chaida, jidha bhen bharavan naal mili da. No side should act like the others aafsar and should have the right to speak out. Come to think of it, I was once at a wedding where the munde wale actually literally threw the women at the door out the way and barged in - I was there too because I was a little kid. It was not pleasant and dangerous af. Needless to say we demanded maafi and payment later.
