Gulliver BS: Why read an electronic book/Kindle? (69* d) RE: BS: Why read an electronic book/Kindle? 21 Nov 09

I just noticed my name being mentioned in the preceding thread ;-)

I've been reading ebooks for over ten years. It started when I had to travel abroad on business, so I loaded lots of novels, short stories, documentaries, sound files, etc on my laptop for those trips. I got rid of about half my paper books (still have almost 2,000) and bought very few over the past few years. I've taken a small laptop on most of my travels (hence my moniker!) so whether in an Indonesian jungle, on a mountain-top in Japan, on an island off Italy, I've had lots of reading matter, including travelogues, dictionaries, photos, song lyrics, etc. I can also keep up my travel diaries and prepare emails. Luckily I have no problem reading from the screen, and particularly like it for reading in bed.
