I'm a female and I read a bunch of ebooks...I admit, I absolutely adore ebooks. I mostly read science fiction and fantasy, and I tend to accidentally find the most verbose authors...the books are quite often long (in the realm of 1,000 pages). I love the simplicity of carrying around my T|C with ebooks on it (currently, I have 14 ebooks in my library). My back also loves me carrying around my T|C with ebooks--it's a lot lighter than lugging around hardback copies of said books!
The only downside to ebooks in my mind? Not being able to take them into the tub to do some reading while relaxing.
Oh well, I guess you can't have everything...
