I never thought I'd even consider purchasing an e-reader. When they first came out, I was Oh heck no, I'm not trading my precious books for one of those. But they're everywhere, and I keep reading how e-books are growing in popularity. I don't know what this means for the future of publishing, but that's not why I'm even considering one. My thing is that I own a lot of books. My TBR pile is taking over my writing desk, and my bookshelf is overflowing (and I have one of those floor to ceiling deals that takes up an entire wall in my study). That's the appeal of e-readers for me - no more clutter. Now if I do decide to get one, I will still buy traditional books. I love them too much to give them up entirely. But I get the appeal of having a book at my fingertips and being able to download a book as soon as it's released.
So how do you feel about e-readers? Which one would you recommend I get if I do decide to take the e-reader plunge?
