I am still in debate weather to get an e-book. The thing is that I like to have the book in my hands and turning the pages. You all know what I mean. So could anyone give me any advice about the decision I should make. I am also running out of shelf space. Hopefully you can.
I love my kindle! I got mine before the summer this year from the states, as they were not out yet here in the UK, and every day since I have had it I have fallen in love with it more and more.... It is great to carry, does not weight much at all, it is thin and fits perfectly in all my bags. Best thing is that when in a crowded bus or train, where you have to stand and hold on to the bars, you can just pass the pages by the click on a button with the same hand you are holding your e-book. It is great! Your books are downloaded instantly and it can hold more than 3,000 books... I would really like to see a home with a room big enough to hold so many books (apart from a library). I decided to purchase mine since I ran out of space in my flat, not shelves, but space in general to put up more shelves. Yes, I do miss real books, and the feel to flicking a page... but this is definitely much more comfortable when you have to travel every day into work. I definitely recommend it to everyone.
I have a Kindle; its a great little piece of kit and I enjoy using it. However I only use it for out-of-print books or huge doorstop paperbacks which are uncomfortable to hold. Nothing will ever match the feel of a real book in your hands, and I always prefer the actual book where possible.
