Thread Name: BS: Why read an electronic book/Kindle?
Subject: RE: BS: Why read an electronic book/Kindle?
There is definitely a place for e-books and e-ink. There is also a place for regular books.
My wife has perhaps 50 books and god alone knows how much music on her audio player. They're fantastic when she's traveling, as she is now (she'll be in Mulhouse, France tomorrow).
The optical e-books are good for what has been mentioned. I have no quarrel with them at all.
It's just another way of getting information to people, another format for information circulation.
