Well, I resisted e-readers for ages. I remember having discussions with friends way back in the 80's about the concept of reading on a computer-we all thought (even the computer genius in the group) that books couldn't be replaced.
Fast forward to 2011 and I have an Amazon Kindle ( a birthday gift). I've read 2 books in the last week, and I'm hooked. It's easy to use, comfortable to read and neat to carry around. I didn't think anything would replace books, but this certanly comes close for me.
I love having a variety of books in one place.
