Browsing for a book physically in a store on online is all the same to me.
I read my first ebook on my old Handspring Visor. It was convenient for short bursts of reading but not good enough to convert me. Then I bought a Kindle 1 and have not looked back. I bought it as a way to save space in my little condo and found that I much prefer reading eink than I do paper for all my fiction reading. The few times I've gone back to paper because a book was not available digitally has not lured me back (it actually feels strange to me now).
Along with Katie1, I'm curious as to why are you a member of Mobileread if you have no intention of buying an ebook?
