No such thing as free reading on e books as there is no such thing as a free e book reader but libraries happen to lend books for free as a lot of people seem to forget when they say the only free books are electronic.
My main issues with e-books tend to be both the limitations and the sensory aspects. I love the feel , look and smell of a book.
If i enjoy a book i recommend it . Some of my favourite books such as Good Omens and Shadow of the Wind have been passed from my shelves to at least twenty other people and back to me again . An e-book version of these can't be passed like this . It limits the sharing of fantastic books in this way .
People who use books as ornaments annoy the hell out of me as well. I have a great collection many signed , many first editions but all read or to be read .
