I am seriously trying to get only electronic books from now on. We just don't have any more room for paper books!!!
Me neither, and I'm only 28! I donate my old books regularly, and I STILL don't have enough space for them all, even with boxes and boxes of them in storage. (My defense is that art books are generally pretty big and take up more space than normal books, so I blame the problem on all the art books). In all honesty, though, I don't know what I'm going to do if I don't get a Kindle soon. That way, I can only buy 'special' books in book form and just download random stuff that I want to read. My biggest pet peeve is books that I can finish in a day or two. What's the point of them? Really? They only entertain me for a day, yet they expect equal shelf space as books that take me weeks, or ones that I've reread 80 times?
Incidentally, my copy of Pride and Prejudice is a MESS! It's literally in several pieces, and hasn't had a cover in years. In terms of readability, it's useless. Just thought of that when you mentioned Jane Austen! It'll be nice to be able to read some classics that haven't been duct taped together six times!
One question, since we're on the topic: Have you been able to find most of the books you want to read available for download, or is it only the bestsellers and classics? Say I wanted to read a random sci-fi book by an author who isn't partcularly popular...what are the chances that I'd be able to download it? Just wondering!
