Richard51 Posted December 30, 2010 Share Posted December 30, 2010 [quote user="EmilyA"]I thought about it long and hard, but still think the downloads are quite expensive for more recent books. Yes, the classics are free, but we have got most of those that we have ever wanted to read. It just can't match the price of Abe books for most of the things we buy and I think biography, travel etc are seriously thin. (We have got about 7,000 books just to put my feelings about it in context.) Agree it's great for travelling and holidays. I will get one eventually I think, but didn't ask Father Christmas for one this year.[/quote]I agree Emily. MrR51 was going to buy me one - I'm an avid reader so he thought it would make a good present. However, when I read more about it just seemed very limited. Proprietary books at a price not much below a hard copy - and then not a comprehensive choice. Like Chancer, I like to travel and tend to travel very light (viz 8kg for several weeks). If I'm adding to my luggage weight I would prefer a device that provided more functionality than just e-books.Mrs R51 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
