A Kindle is much easier for me to read, but I don't want to contribute to their agenda, plus I do fear them changing the books on the host side.

Just curious what others use.

I wouldn't worry too much about the ethics of getting a Kindle. If looked after properly, it should last you 10+ years, which isn't going to benefit them in any meaningful way since modern hyper-capitalism needs consumer electronics being replaced every few years. Their model is based on people then buying ebooks - but you can just torrent them or buy directly from the author (I.E Roosh). This isn't great for authors who don't already have a base, I know, so it's a bit of a catch 22.

My eyes are OK, so I much prefer going to a proper book shop like Waterstones here in England — I find them to be an oasis in a sea of urban consumerist-degeneracy, because although you're still consuming, it feels different with books for whatever reason, perhaps the fact they aren't as disposable or vapid as other things. But, that said - Amazon is so flipping convenient that I do, admittedly, still buy a fair share of books on impulse that way, when they're recommended by someone on a livestream or whatever.
