I got a kindle from my parents last Christmas. I've been in school so haven't had much time for extracurricular reading, but I believe I've read about four or five books off it. I find it really easy on my eyes and manageable to hold etc. I did have a couple of apps on my ipod touch for reading, and I found those really tedious (it took me aaaaaaages to read Dracula because having a paragraph a page made the book seem to be a million pages long).
Everything's going digital these days, and honestly, the production of paper on such a massive scale, for books, newspapers, practically everything, is not infinite. I know it's recyclable, but not enough is being done, and I'll go all Al Gore on you and say every little bit helps. So I don't mind embracing this slow switch to electronic if it means I'm not quite so quickly buying a tree's worth of books or more and placing them decoratively on a bookshelf in my room.
That said, I still buy carbon-based books. I'm trying to strike a balance between digital and paper, and it seems to be working for me. Also, a ton of the classics are available for free download, so I've been collecting those.
look to the stars
let hope burn in your eyes
and we'll love, and we'll hate, and we'll die
all to no avail, all to no avail
