Some of the stuff on this list makes me sad.. :( #1 especially. And, I don’t understand why it has to be an either, or. I love my kindle, and I love my books. Having a kindle hasn’t stopped me from buying actual books,what it’s done is made it easier for me read . Before, If I was flying, or if I just wanted to make sure I had something to read for later in the day, I would have to haul around 2 or 3 books.. Now I have my kindle. That said, there are books that I simply *need* physical copies of, to write notes in , and underline stuff. You can love both.. It’s ok.
