Advantages: Ease of use, like a real book, battery time
Disadvantages: Loading books from Amazon is addictive :)
When eBook readers first came out, I was sceptical to say the least and refused to buy one because "it would never be the same as holding an actual book". True. It is better!!
To say that I'm a bookaholic is an understatement as my house would not need supporting walls if I just piled up my 1000+ books against them. Even this did not make me want to buy an eBook reader though. It was only when I went travelling, I decided I had to buy one or carry a separate suitcase just for my bedtime material.
What can I say, the best thing I ever bought! Especially if you enjoy books that have 1300+ pages, such as War and Peace or Lord of the Rings the way I do. Being able to use only 1 hand to hold the Kindle up and to turn pages is fantastic. No more propping the book up with more books because it is too heavy to lift.
I have to say, I still buy some books as books, such as cookery, craft and any other ones with pictures, but nothing beats a Kindle for chick lit and rom coms.
It is also helping with saving space and is actually saving me money. Many of the classics are actually free and most other books are also only a few quid!!
Kindle only takes minutes to set up and with the 3G and 1 click shopping set up, you really can download books wherever in the world you are. Great for backpackers!
Summary: Brilliant for travels, beach, commute and reading in bed.
