Default Re: One Last Question, and I Promise I'll Quit...

I like both methods of reading. I do enjoy a "real" book for certain types of reading, a book with great pictures, for example.

Some of the things I like about my Kindle are as follows:
Books for the kindle are typically half the price or less than real books.
I read a lot, so storage of real books is a challenge.
I like being able to put the cursor on a word and have the definition pop up.
I like not having to drive anywhere to have to buy a new book.
I broke my kindle once. Called them and had a new one in hand the next day.

There is something very nice about bookcases and their contents, though.

So I'm saying both have their advantages. I suspect there's one or two people out there who are anti e-reader just because they resist change. Talking to my brother-in-law today. He was complaining about kids these days and their attire, tattoos, etc. I said, "Come on, this is 2013, things change, to which he replied "Not for me." With that attitude, we'd all be wearing powdered wigs and some pretty strange pants.

Larry, Pinedale has a gym?
