Oh, I love eBooks. I find the convenience is a wonderful thing and I discover new books much more quickly and easily online. Then there is the space-saving issue. Plus, It is easy to read a few minutes here and there on my phone during a busy day, though my tablet is a better device for that and my Kobo a better device still. My mom and I got to read Cloud Atlas at the same time, her on my Kobo, me on my tablet and phone, since I bought it from Kobo and have the Kobo app (and the Kindle app and the Overdrive app) on my tablet and phone.

I have to say that I do like seeing my dtbs on the bookshelf and I do fall prey to the issue of being distracted by the Internet on the tablet (and the phone, too, but browsing is not as fun that). I should wrestle the Kobo away from Mom.

Also, I am concerned about the longevity of my eBooks. I doubt that my nephew and niece will be able to read my eBooks in 20 years whereas I have a couple of my great-grandmother's books and can read the ones that aren't in German.
