Handling of mobile reading devices : a qualitative analysis of extended reading on the MobileRead net forum (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine reading on the MobileRead forums. The term ”to read” is extended to also cover book collection and usage of new technology such as mobile reader units. A catalyst for reading on mobile reader units seem to be the need to always have access to the personal e-book collection. Apart from being a source for reading the collection of e-books also serves the purpose of extending the members self-esteem. A large portion of the activities on the MobileRead forum is aimed at making new technology comprehensible with the help of protocols to determine the usage of that technology. The process of making protocols also seem to be another way for the members to extend their self-esteem. Traditional libraries are mainly seen as one of many sources for ebooks. Librarians are mostly perceived as being service minded but lacking in e-book knowledge. There is also a risk for miscommunication as the library has developed other protocols that defines an e-book and how it should be used. This study is a qualitative analysis based on forum posts collected from the MobileRead forum.
