Re: E-Books or Paper Books

Combination. I'm a collector, so I want physical copies of the books I want. But I do almost all of my actual reading now on my phone, and to me, it's worth the $8 for the ease of holding my phone vs. holding a book open and the convenience of having access to the book on my phone wherever I go, since the phone goes everywhere I go.

I will say that this was not my position a year or so ago. The convenience factor finally won me over to ebooks. Oh, and as Stoek mentioned, one of the best features is the dictionary/Internet search feature. I love being able to click on, say, a species name, click on the Google option, and go right to Memory Alpha/Beta and see a screen cap or other picture to be able to visualize an alien character. SO cool!
This is our small proof, not only that things can be done differently in this business, but that the greatest expression of rebellion is joy.
