Re: Electronic Readers

Do you have an e-reader or would you consider getting one?
At the moment I don't have one and am not considering getting one. Aside from the price issue, I'm not that keen on having one right now.

What do you feel are the advantages or disadvantages of e-readers?
The advantages to getting one for me would be to cut down on the space in my room that my books take up. Another advantage to the e-reader is that it's easy to transport when riding the subway or traveling in the air. Also, I'm not sure about this, but maybe the cost of an e-book is less than a paper book. Additionally, I think it would be easy to look up quotes or passages within a book with an e-reader. A disadvantage of having an e-book is that you miss the physical experience of reading a book. Some books I just need to have that experience. Others it's not as important.

Do you feel that e-readers change the nature of reading?
Maybe they'd make books more accessible if you can just download all publications off the internet. I think people who travel a lot would find e-readers pretty handy, but I'm sure there will always be people who would favor real books and never use e-readers.
