The reasons for me are, greater selection of books, cheaper books and a more pleasant reading experience. Mostly I read in bed and that is very pleasant.
In all seriousness, WHERE do you shop?
I can find just about any dtb book, except current releases, for much cheaper on the Amazon marketplace than I can anywhere on the internet in ebook form.
And there are a lot of books I can't find at all in ebook form [Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champion series springs to mind].
So ebooks, for me, have a lesser selection and cost more.
The benefits of not taking up space, in our condo or in my bookbag, are what drew me, and keep drawing me, to the ebook.
