Quoting snglemama:" I voted e-reader... but hear me out. I COMPLTELY agree with you about the feel/smell of a book ... [snip!] ... the feel of a book in my hand.... going to a library or bookstore... storing them, lugging them to work in my bag. "
I totally get that and I do think that's why e-readers are doing so well.
I think it's more my eyes are really sensitive. Most of the time when I type on a computer I look away from the screen over top of it because my eyes hurt to watch the harsh white light coming out of it and I look away a lot. So an e-reader is quite painful for me.
Though the thought of being able to go "man I want to read this book .... Oh I will just click click click, got it!" is a lot more appealing than wanting a book so packing the kids into the pram and heading down to the library.
But my grandma is a book binder and raised me to adore books and everything about them
