Tourists pack sun cream and the Kindle
HOLIDAYMAKERS are putting paperbacks to one side and packing e-books in their luggage.
E-reading devices such as the Kindle are now the preferred way to get stuck into a good novel while on a break, the poll by travel agency www.sunshine.co.uk found.
A total of 1,928 UK adults who had been abroad on holiday in the last 12 months were surveyed.
Of those who had read while away, 51 per cent had used an e-reader while 49 per cent had opted for a traditional book.
Of those who used an e-reader, 44 per cent said it was easier to hold, while 29 per cent said it was easier to read in the sun.
