I wanted something to read last weekend, so downloaded about five books to my Kindle, at a cost of around 79p each.
Kept me amused for 2 days.
Don't know about you, Turtle, but I find that I get through books so much faster on a Kindle than in book form.
I bought the entire Jasper FForde collection in hardback with two signed for the missus at christamas for eleven pound while the ebook price would have topped a hundred quid. A bookshelf is also cheaper than a kindle.
LAtest release books tend to cost about the same but you can't go 'Oy Poohcarrot just read a bleedin deadly book . would you like a lend . then we can both discuss it.'
A book can be passed around, shared loved by many. ebooks are restrictive. I love showing off my book collection and lending to trusted people.
Ebooks just don't allow that.
