I agree with all those points. I like the e-ink screen for reading. Its so much nicer on your eyes. I borrowed a friends kindle for an afternoon and it was great. Sadly most of the e-books I have looked at are the same prices as the paper backs and that puts me off getting a kindle or something similar of my own. With no manufacturing cost for e-books I think your standard paperback should come in more around ~ $4.99 not $7.99. Thats really the only thing holding me back from getting a e-reader with an e-ink screen.Guest said:
There's something appealing about a device that:
can run for weeks on a charge
that you can read without bugging your eyes out
and read comfortably in the great outdoors
holds all my books
eschews mind-irritating distracting hyper-media (movies, internet etc) and interactivity, the spacious relaxed environment of the written word and a sketch or two has shown itself to be conducive to awakening the imagination and cultivating inner peace and greater happiness.
