That’s how I felt as soon as I bought my Kindle last year. I love that ebook sales are exploding and that ereaders are the next big thing. And let me tell you, I was never an ebook fan–until I had my Kindle and “got” the experience.
I don’t buy paper novels anymore, unless I have zero choice and I *must* get the book–which is exceedingly rare. 99.9% of the time, I’ll buy some other book that’s available for the Kindle. (Hear that, publishers? Once a book’s available in print, don’t make me wait for the ebook, ’cause I’ll just go somewhere else!)
The only kind of books I still buy in paper are nonfiction writing books. Since those are reference guides and I tend to use many at a time when I’m wrestling with a story problem, I like to have a bunch out in front of me at once so I can quickly flip between sections of each book. But no doubt that will be solved by e-technology someday, too. It’s going to be an electronic world.
Bring it on!
