First lesson of the day; don't push the 'enter' button to move from your title bar :0)
I have to say, I've been a die-hard paperback fan for decades; they fit well in any purse I own, not to mention the console of my SUV, they're light-weight, they are definitely cheaper than hardcovers, and they don't take up a lot of shelf space.
This last reason is important. I can fit them three-deep in my bookcases. My largest bookcase has 'cubbies', and I can fit 45+ paperbacks in each one. There are 20 cubbies. You do the math, because I don't wanna know the answer. Over the last year or two, I've begun to donate books to the local library as I finish reading them. But I still have more books than shelf space.
Enter Kobo! It's a cheaper ereader, and you have to order books from the kobo site, but the young adult selection has over 8000 titles. It works for me. Except,(sigh) I've already downloaded 19 titles this month. Since they aren't piled on my desk, I don't see them 'piling up', and in turn, watch my spending. Same habit, different corner? (You all know the actual saying I'm referring to;-)
What is your take on books? Paper or ereader?
