Really, eBooks were invented for people like me who discover a love for reading.
I also discovered new authors, indie or not, that I would never ever have looked at in a bookshop (had they been there for me to find), so this is another great plus for me. I do miss the feeling of paper on my fingers though, I admit it, so once in a while I enjoy reading a paperbook, but that is indeed only once or twice a year.
