For me ebooks are a god send. They're a little cheaper so I can try new authors (something I haven't been doing as much of lately due to the rising cost of paper books)
Add to that the convenance of bring my library with me where ever I go as well as the saved space I have on my book shelves.
And let's not forget that for people like me, who live in a small town with no book store (sacrilege!) I can get the books I want the day they're released.
Too many books? Ha! I can read two fairly short novels in one day and can (and have) read books like Gone with the Wind in a day or less. For me there is no such things as too many books.
I can't love ebooks and ebook readers more. I love my Kobo as much as I love my iPod.
