    E-Books and Amazon Kindles?

    If you don't know what an E-Book or a Amazon Kindle is, google it.

    Personally, I think these are the stupidest things ever. They cost at least 2 or 3x more than a regular, nice, simple book. And if you were really into books, you would like a plain paper-binded one than a computerized device. What do you think?

    I have a Kindle, and it's awesome.
    If you travel a lot it's not stupid.
    Saves you the trouble of going to a library, you can download books wherever.

    Convenience. No worrying about returning books. Saves space. Saves trees.

    It's been almost a century when books are made and the green environment is fine still.

    I still prefer a simple ordinary paper back book.

    Look, I still prefer ordinary books, but kindles are a good source for reading.

    Its more for convenience sake of carrying 10 books, or one item.

    > Implying each Kindle is "less than 2 or 3 books"
    > Implying being into books means you like paper stuff

    I think you might want to revise your statements

    I'd rather read a real book than staring at an E-Book....

    I read a lot of books, a few on my friend's kindle, and it's not that cool. I personally like paper books better than the Kindle. I just don't see what's so fascinating about the kindle. Oh gee, E-books are sooo fascinating, much more than REGULAR books.
