A fellow blogger, Julie over on Book Hooked Blog wrote a post
the other day about eReaders. It got me thinking about what eReaders mean to other people. She brings up some great points and it's worth a read whether you are pro-eReader
In response to her post, I do not plan on replacing all my current print books into digital form. I love my library and the books in the stores and on my shelf. My e-reader isn't to replace print whatsoever. I love printed books. The eReader is only to make life a little easier while commuting or travelling. Taking 6 books on a plane for a vacation can get heavy. If I can take 3 less because they are in digital form, all the better.
I hope that one day printed books stick around. They can be heirlooms, antiquities and somewhat of a comfort in years to come. I can't imagine buying my nieces an electronic book for a birthday. What fun is that?
