I am now the proud (if somewhat apprehensive) owner of an e-reader. So:
From Raincoast books.
Great ! Congrats )
Love it! (though I am still holding out against the e-books…)
I’ll have a more nuanced reaction once the novelty’s worn off, but now, I have to stay that the best thing is the elimination of the wait time when you HAVE to read a book or your life’ll implode.
haha congrats! I really enjoy my e-reader and I love that the Kobo is just an e-reader with very few other bells and whistles… but there are still certain books I’d like to own in print thank you very much. I just move so moch and that’s what made me get into it otherwise I do love the smell of books! there’s nothing like it!
Enjoy you’re e-reader :@)
thanks!. I don’t think it’s going to cannibalize my print book buying–rather, I think my book budget just doubled.
I usually enjoy the documents I find in used books, but not the stains. I can’t recalled ever reading any notes written in books that actually added anything to the reading experience (sort of like someone talking loudly on a cell phone in a public place.)
For better or worse, e-readers have no history.
I’ll admit that the stains don’t add to the reading experience. I guess that image just hit a nerve when it comes to the physicality of books as (beautiful) material objects–that is something I miss with an e-reader.
holding a book in your hand along with a cup coffee is the biggest bliss after a tiring day..a strict no to e-reader!!!!…
anyway..just stumbled upon here..

I’m now advocating for their peaceful co-existence. Thanks for visiting!
Congrats! I love that comic!
I hope you enjoy it. They are good for reading old and out of print books which would have had very small print, but I’m still buying books too. I once found a contraceptive in a library book, unused thankfully!
Yes, I’m buying print books as well.
Fascinating, the things we use as placeholders! There must be an internet meme about that somewhere.
Congrats on the acquisition. I tend to think they can co-exist quite well with paper books – which always seem to take over for me anyway! What type did you get, might I ask?
