We also attend our local libraries old book sales. A book doesn't require any batteries, break when you drop it, it usually stays where you lay it down and if it doesn't you only lose 50 cents to a dollar instead of how much you paid for the electronic readers.

Absolutely true. But an ereader will allow me to carry 1500 books in my pocket.

After 13 weeks of fulltimming we had one underfloor compartment and three overhead cabinets full of paper books. To each his own, but that was when we decided that an e-reader was the way to go. We can also check e-books out of our local library, no matter where we are, as long as we have an internet connection.

When we are boondocking the only thing we need to read a book is the e-reader, no lights, no gen, no noise, and no drain on the house batteries. We plug it in when we are the road and the charge is always ahead of the use.

I like my tablet when reading in bed in the dark, and my 17.3 laptop when reading while sitting upright. So, I look for pdf's I can email to myself to where I can switch devices, or pull up on any computer if I have free time.

But, I went to Value Village last week and came home with an eclectic bunch of used hard copy books that I likely would never have thought to look for, or found, electronically. Nothing beats physically browsing through books, so I can relate to the OP's post.

I haven't tried the electric books yet - we go to the local senior center and pick up 10 to 15 books, read them and then take them back. No charge. And we sometimes buy new books and leave it with the senior center. They do paperbacks only. Works for us.
