I find that I will buy TONS more books when all I have to do is click a mouse. It's just way too easy, you know? Bad for my wallet.

I agree that there are certain types of books that you just want a paper copy of (on Kindle Boards they call them "Dead Tree Books"--nice rhetoric, that--heh, heh). For example, I always want the novels I teach in paper form so I can more easily flip to the quote I want and have the same page numbers as the students. Also, books with lots of pictures or graphics I'd want in paper form. But for most reading, I adore my Kindle.

Unstable. Volatile. Dangerous. And That's Just The Chemistry.
