How many of you own an electronic book reader or have at least tried using one?
How comfortable are you using it? Do you prefer holding an electronic thing instead of a real book?
They say it represents the future of reading. They say it will do for books what iPod did for music.
But you don’t hold music right? You can store it anywhere and still get the same happiness and all from it.
In a way I think it is good where as storing books is considered. It will save space and may be money as well. As it is my bookshelf is so stuffed with books there is hardly any space left. I have to literally stuff them in.
But I am sure how happy I will be if I buy one. I guess the newness will wear off easily. And also I won’t browse the bookstores for hours like I do now. That won’t be very nice huh?
I googled and found the book reader which I think I like best. It’s from Sony.
Ditto for Audio E-books. I downloaded a sample of Emma by Jane Austin and didn’t like it one bit. First of all I am very restless. If I am not holding a book in my hand, there are bound to be many things that will distract me. I had to listen to the first chapter thrice to get it right. May be I am not used to them or maybe they are not meant for me.
