Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
I'm a traditional writer armed with a pad and good pen, but often I use my laptop to write stories in manuscript form. As a reader I prefer 'real' books rather than e-readers, but I understand the convenience of the latter. The tool I have started to use recently is a digital voice recorder, for the ideas that pop in the mind when a pad and pen are not in easy reach, ie when driving.
The one I bought was £27 a little more expensive than stationary but very convenient especially as I can speak a lot quicker than I can write an idea down.
