At the Midpoint...
Got my Kindle. Love it. And have been reading all over the Web that ebook sales are soaring. I have to admit, I can see why. You can read a thousand-page doorstopper of a book and it takes up virtually no space. You can enlarge the print for easy reading. The Kindle always finds your place in any book you're reading--no dropping your bookmark and spending five minutes searching for where you stopped last time. And did I mention if you want it, you got it, in seconds? Just a couple of clicks and the book is yours.
I know I will still love my books on paper. And for some types of books--nonfiction, with pictures and graphs and the like, and my research books--I think I'll prefer a physical copy. But time will tell on that.
