That's why I've never and will never want a Kindle. I think they are great for some people - my mum has one. But I love the feel and smell of a book in my hands too much lol! Also if I've read a book - I like to add it to my collection on my gigantic bookshelf! lol

Tbh - I know it means you can carry more than one book with you which is great, but one the Kindle is in a cover its pretty darn heavy. Heavier then some of my books.

That being said, I LOVE my Kindle. I was hesitant about it because I like the feel and smell of books, but it is so incredibly worth it. I read a lot more often now because you can just take it out and read it whenever. Plus you don't have to worry about holding a book open (I know that sounds silly, but I hate when pages slip.) If I had to, I would buy mine again for twice the price I originally paid.
