So what made me decide to get one? Well, one of my favourite non fiction authors was re-releasing a book of his with new material added, but only as an e book. While I have occasionally downloaded books onto my laptop, it's not exactly convenient, so I threw caution to the wind and now am happily e reading my new book. It's not at all bad, actually- the e reader, I mean (the book is great)- and I can foresee it getting a good deal of use. Not that I'll stop buying regular books; I'll be off to the bookstore this week to pick up the newest addition to a series I collect. After all, with all the other installments lined up on my book shelf, I'm hardly going to break up a complete set with an e book. My new e reader will supplement my book habit, not replace it.
