Gee this has been an interesting discussion.
I made the mistake of thinking that ereaders were de rigeur so to speak in the first world countries (at least) and it wouldn't have dawned on me that two of the most technologically advanced nations, in terms of electronics makers, wouldn't buy ereaders like some other countries do. (Japan and Korea)
I had previously read on this Forum re Germany's fixed sale on books .... but do Germans acquire ereaders generally? Or are they seen as somewhat superfluous because of the fixed pricing?
