But you know what? I don't really want to pay $259 for an e-book reader. And when the Kindle editions are more expensive (in some cases) than the actual book... well, what's the point?
I think my reading tastes are a little too eclectic for an e-book reader right now. Maybe once retailers start offering all books as digital books... then we'll see. (I don't think any of the non-fiction stuff I've bought recently was available in Kindle format. So I'd still have to buy those books in paper!)
