    Went to all ebooks in 2009. I've found that I started to read a lot more. I can slip my Nook in my back pocket, which is a revolution.

    I read e-books, but sooner or later I also buy the paperback copy, partially because the sight of a nice full bookshelf is very satisfying and so I have copies to lend out to friends.

    I can't get over the feeling that e-books aren't completely mine and aren't permanent. I buy e-books for convenience, but if I want to own a book and add it to my collection, I buy a physical copy. I will double-dip on a book to have the ease of reading it on my phone. After all, $8 (my upward limit on an e-book) is just about a fast food meal. That's not a lot in the grand scheme, especially if you're not doing your whole collection that way.
