I don’t have a digital reader. I prefer books, too. Occasionally, I would like to have a reader to quickly find a quote, but that’s about it.
I used to think that as well, but since I got the Kindle app on my smart phone I'm finding I prefer reading books on my phone. I read a lot and it's a lot easier to carry around a smart phone than a book. Also allows me to easily read a bit when I have short breaks in my working day.
I prefer books too. I have an Ipad but I don’t use it for books. I did try one once, but it just doesn’t work for me. By the way, if you have friends that are readers, I don’t think you can trade ebooks. That really bothers me because we do trade books. Maybe some can but I haven’t found a way to do it. I do try to buy most of my books at the bookstore because I want to support them. A bookstore is a great community.
Then I think about the whole Digital Rights Management thing, and realize that I might lose my right to the book, as opposed to having physical possession of a book that cannot be taken from me for any reason. If they were 5 bucks, I might consider it.
