don't get me wrong I love my nook but with certain books, nothing will take the place of beautiful hardcover and hte best contrast in any format.
but for day to day reading, I am fully on board the digital e-reader train.
I don't understand this... Why can't you read Watership Down in digital format, but can read author Yyy's latest novel?
I forsee a glorious role for paper books. They will be treasures. They will also be more expensive, but who cares, they'll be collector's items.
The paperbacks will disappear, in favor for electronic. But the hardbacks will be works of art. Something you will want to show in the living room. So, you'll have author Yyy's latest novel on your reader only, and Watership Down on display in your livingroom.
