I recently bought my first ebook reader - a Kobo Touch - because I'm living in a non-English-speaking country. I've eyed them for years but couldn't justify it considering how many paper books the readers cost could buy.

In retrospect I wish I'd bought one years ago. Stuff I love about it:

- can carry all my books with me
- much lighter than a real book
- can adjust the font (I've always hated serif fonts) and more importantly the text size, e.g. larger for when it's darker out
- I use the built-in dictionary far more than I would have imagined

Word of warning tho: eink readers are great for text-heavy books but terrible for magazines and highly-formatted books/docs; for that I'd suggest a colour LCD tablet.
