Advantages: Storing hundreds of books
Disadvantages: Just not the same as a book...
I am a complete book addict and have over 800 books in my house. They were taking up to much space so when this new device came out I was quite excited! For me it would be a way of storing hundreds of books and I would also be able to take many books away with me without taking up luggage space.
I have used this for several months now. I have mostly downloaded the free classics as currently in the UK e-books are no cheaper then paperbacks and in some cases, more expensive. I do like using it, I sometimes almost forget I am reading from an electronic device and it is so easy to use. It's light to hold and I like the fact that you can change the font size if needed. So yes, it did do everything I had hoped and if prices for e-books come down then this is a good buy.
However, would it ever replace the conventional book? For me, not a chance. This is an addition to my book collection, not a replacement. There is nothing like reading a new book - with crisp pages. And I wouldn't risk such an expensive piece of equipment by reading in the bath! I like to embrace new technology but I will keep my overflowing library just the same.
Summary: A useful device, but will not replace books for me!
