« Five Tools to Help Overcome iPhone Limitations | Main | The Online Information Paradox »




For me, the issue has not so much to do with the eBook reader itself as with the eBook reading concept.

I'm a traditionalist who likes to turn the pages of a book. And to have bookshelves crammed with books I've already read, and that I can go back and read again if the urge strikes me.

Having said that, I do have a couple of eBooks on my Blackberry to occupy myself with when I'm in the waiting room at the doctor/dentist/accountant's office and there is nothing else to read except last month's Economist...

What's more, it's one more gadget to carry in my handbag, which on a normal day already weighs between 3-5 kgs. (Don't ask what's in it). The extra weight is unnecessary.

And finally, if you happen to lose your device, there goes your whole bookshelf... Has Oprah thought of that?
